Bentley and Rolls Royce: Two brothers, not only in spirit
After the Second World War, a Rolls-Royce, then the Silver Wraith, was followed for the first time by an almost identical Bentley - the Mark VI. In the mid-fifties, the similarities between Rolls-Royce and Bentley continued to increase, for example when in 1955 the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud and the Bentley S1 were presented in parallel, distinguishable only by their radiator grilles. But what was the origin of this technical and partly visual affinity?
The history of the two luxury flagships
The connection between the two brands goes back to the bankruptcy of Bentley Motors Ltd. In 1931. The insolvent group was actually supposed to go to the British engine and car manufacturer Napier & Son - but this calculation was made without the company British Central Equitable Trust Limited. What is world-famous today, but nobody knew at the time on the day of the auction: behind this trust was the company Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Ltd.
Rolls Royce thus absorbed one of its biggest rivals and took over Bentley, which until then had been known mainly for its expensive sports car models. Rolls Royce, on the other hand, had the image of being the car of kings - and in the truest sense of the word, it was mainly rulers such as the then King of Yugoslavia or the King of Sweden who drove Rolls Royce's luxury flagships.
The identical Bentley models, which usually differed only in their radiator grille, radiator mascot as well as brand name and lettering, reflected more sportiness than luxury.
The Bentley brand was taken over by Volkswagen in 1998 for 736 million euros. In a gentle transition from 1998 to 2002, the factory in Crewe in North West England still produced vehicles of both brands. Today, only Bentley vehicles are produced here. Today's BMW brand Rolls-Royce has been built at the factory right next to the Earl of March's airfield and the famous race track called Goodwood in West Sussex since 2003.
