How W.O. started the company ?


Before WWI, W.O. is a DFP (Doriot, Flandrin & Parant) car seller in North London. While in the car factory, he has a brilliant idea of using aluminium to fabricate lighter engine pistons. In partnership with interested industrialists, it is in 1916 when the first engine prototype is finished. So is the second engine in 1918. From that base, he founds the company a year later. In that same year, the first car is made fitting the 3.0 L engine.


Who are the Bentley Boys/ Bentley Girls ?


In the 1920s, anyone who wants to drive vehicles capable of winning dreams of the Bentley models. However, the elaborate Bentleys are costly, and only few people are able to afford them. Only some rich British enthusiasts own the cars and achieve numerous victories in the sign of the flying B. This group of drivers are respectfully called Bentley Boys. Among them are Tim Birkin and Woolf Barnato. The latter has a number of racing successes, including the 24 Hours of Le Mans. In 1925, he becomes the Bentley principal shareholder and chairman after he bought a great number of the company shares to avert its bankruptcy.
