Quote from If It's Fast, Then It's a Bentley :
Bentley manufactured higher performance cars that won consecutive victories from 1927 to 1930 at the 24 hours of Le Mans. Woolf Barnato, staying a motorist himself, tried to keep the company in good shape although it meant applying most of his wealth, but the costly parts and upkeep of the Bentleys could not withstand the wonderful depression and was eventually sold to Rolls‐Royce in 1931.
Upon Rolls–Royce's acquisition of the firm, it had been renamed Bentley Motors Limited. The old Bentley buyers didn`t like the new Bentley as it had been looked as being a cheaper Rolls—Royce since it looks like the Rolls´ shape also exterior, all the same, as though the new version. Eventually, sales dropped for both the Rolls‐Royce and the Bentley and the firm was acquired by Vickers.
In 1998, the business was won by Volkswagen from a war bid with BMW, but the two businesses have found a way to come up with an arrangement for each company to have a role from the manufacturing and retention on the brand from the Rolls–Royce types.
