Bentley’s own history is full of men and women of great spirit – from our creator’s beginnings and the original Bentley Boys and Girls to our designers and craftsmen and women today. A brilliant aeronautical engineer, W.O. Bentley discovered the right answers by intuitively asking the right questions. Soon his D.F.P was winning races and setting records. Driving W.O. to ever- greater innovation, the Bentley Boys pushed the marque forward. Wealthy daredevils to a man, this seminal group of owner- drivers lived as fast as they drove. The Bentley Boys and Bentley Girls put the roar into the Roaring Twenties, sealing their reputations during glittering gatherings at Le Mans.
Dr Andreas Offermann, Member of the Board for Sales, Marketing and Aftersales, Bentley Motors, believes: “This book develops themes that have always defined and continue to define Bentley owners. From family, friendship, and entrepreneurship to craftsmanship, conservation, and competition — these are values we all share and live by.
“From the grandest of gestures to the smallest of details, our winged ‘B’ badge represents more than just the world’s most finely crafted cars. It is an approach to living: a blueprint for every experience our hurried lives can offer. And its message is as challenging as it is reassuring: springboard off yesterday, race today, and, above all, chase tomorrow.”
