W.O. Bentley was a British racecar enthusiast who wanted to create the best racecar in the world. His first automobile was made in 1919 and was called the EXP1. The prototype was fitted with a 3-liter engine and offered superior performance compared to other models on the market at the time. Bentley cars were very successful between 1927 and 1930, especially at Le Mans. Bentleys were popular for speed and performance, while Rolls-Royce was more sophisticated and elegant. During the Great Depression, Bentley Motors went through some financial distress and was purchased by Rolls-Royce in 1931. Bentley cars started to resemble Rolls-Royce designs and some models even shared a common chassis. Rolls-Royce sold Bentley Motors to Volkswagen in 1998 and the brand is now making elegant, luxurious and performance vehicles, still produced in Crewe, England.
