At Le Mans between the wars, Bentleys brushed the opposition aside at will, winning the event in 1924, 1927, 1928, 1929 and 1930. The financial crash of 1929 affected the Bentleys badly and had to be sold to Rolls Royce. Rolls Royce discontinued production of Bentleys for two years and ended the racing programme completely.When production of Bentleys did resume it was at Rolls Royce’s Derby plant rather than the Bentleys’ old home at Cricklewood. For over seventy years after the Rolls Royce buy-out, Bentleys and Rolls Royce shared a common chassis design.
Some critics felt due to Rolls Royce's take over that Bentleys were never quite the same. In place of the hard driving, high endurance, racing style came a newer breed of luxury cars that lacked the excitement of the old-style racing Bentleys. But times have to change and the new Bentleys are outstanding and highly successful with even Queen Elizabeth owning a Bentley Limousine.Bentley Flying Spur car rental has never been easier and you will marvel at how well this Bentley drives.
