When the Bentley brothers sold the first car bearing their winged logo in 1921, they were focused on building fast cars. They succeeded with wins at Le Mans in 1924, 1927, 1928, 1929 and 1930. However, due to slow sales, the brothers sold the firm to Rolls-Royce in 1931. For the next 60 years, the two brands shared much DNA, with Bentley being more performance-oriented. Acquired by Volkswagen in 1998 (BMW acquired Rolls-Royce), Bentleys were soon again racing at Le Mans as an established uber-luxury brand. The Continental GT combines a passion for performance with an obsession for luxury. A racetrack-worthy suspension with a silky-smooth V8 or King Kong-like W-12 twin-turbocharged engines allow the Continental to almost keep up with its Porsche cousins on the track. It easily claims first place in terms of interior appointments. Convertible and coupe versions allow owners to agonize over the wind in their face or a tidy, quiet cabin. Those able to afford a Bentley simply avoid this dilemma by purchasing one of each; BentleyMotors.com.
