This is a unique history of a most distinguished marque.
It contains a wealth of contemporary material, covering models from the prototype 3-litre of 1919, through the immortal 41/2-litre, 61/2-litre and 8-litre cars of the W.O. Bentley era, the little known 4-litre, the 31/2- and 41/4-litre 'Silent Sports Cars' built at Derby in the 1930s after the Rolls-Royce takeover of the Bentley company, the postwar Mark VI, the R and S Types, the swift and seductive Continentals, the T Types, and on to the astonishingly fast Turbo R.
All the material is reproduced in facsimile from the leading magazine Autocar, and includes descriptions, technical articles, driving impressions, road tests and retrospective features, all accompanied by hundreds of diagrams, drawings, cutaways and photographs.
Bentley cars have always commanded the admiration and affection of enthusiastic motorists, to whom this book offers a comprehensive range of historic contemporary articles.
