On 10 July 2019, the car manufacturer Bentley will reach the milestone of 100 years since its foundation. This incredible story began with the first prototype created by W.O. Bentley in a mews in London back in 1919 and comes right up to date with the phenomenally powerful and exquisitely crafted cars driven across the world today. Bentley, together with Rolls Royce, a brand we could call its “twin”, has without a doubt transformed the face of motoring.
“Exploring the Extraordinary – 100 Years of Bentley Motors” is the book printed by Faenza Group and written to celebrate 100 years since the foundation of the Bentley brand.
This volume explores all the dates, events and people who have made this luxury car company, worshipped and respected by petrolheads around the world, so extraordinary.
When W.O. Bentley founded Bentley Motors in 1919, his aim was simple: “to build a fast car, a good car, the best in its class.” That desire became Bentley’s mission, still guiding the company today and helping create an exceptional brand that is recognised throughout the world.
This book will be distributed to all the members of RREC – The International Club for Rolls-Royce & Bentley Enthusiasts – and RROC – Bentley & Rolls-Royce Owners – to celebrate this important milestone.
Faenza Group was chosen to print this prestigious book, thanks to its expertise and technology built up over the years which have made it one of the leading global players in the industry.
From the original 3 Litre through to the incredibly powerful and refined cars of the modern era, Bentley’s extraordinary cars have always been designed and built by exceptional people. This book looks back on 100 thrilling years full of victories and defeats, cars and people who have made the Bentley brand unique.
The book “Exploring the Extraordinary – 100 Years of Bentley Motors” was presented for the first time at the JW Marriott Grosvenor House in London on 7 June 2019 with the RROC and RREC clubs and Faenza Group professionals in attendance.
