History & Heritage
Immerse yourself in the history of the marque or discover more about the history of your own car!
We have witnessed many changes of fortune for the Bentley marque over the last 100 years, culminating in the purchase of the Company by Volkswagen in 1998, the return of a 'works' team to Le Mans, and the launch of the first all-new design Bentley since 1930.
What the Club has achieved through the continuity of its long history is effectively the guardianship of the spirit of the marque with its history, in order that it can still be appreciated to the full by todays owners and enthusiasts.
Pay a visit to the Club House or contact the W O Bentley Memorial Foundation to immerse yourself in the history or to trace the history of your own car. Alternatively read all about the Club History or the History of Bentley.
