The financial crash of 1929 affected Bentley badly and it had to be sold to Rolls Royce. Rolls Royce discontinued production of the Bentley for two years and ended the racing programme completely.When production of the Bentley 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 common chassis design. Some critics felt due to the Rolls Royce take over 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 changed and the new Bentleys are outstanding and highly successful with even Queen Elizabeth owning a Bentley Limousine.
