Great Britain's Bentley is a producer of ultra-luxury coupes, convertibles and sedans. Since 1998 it has been owned by Volkswagen but Bentley’s history goes back much further. The company was founded by W. O. Bentley on 1919 and purchased by Rolls-Royce purchased in 1931. Bentley made its early mark on the race track. In 1922, Bentley entered the Indianapolis 500 completing the full 500 miles in a modified road car and finishing 13th with an average speed of 74.95 mph after starting in 19th position. Over the next decade, Bentley cars won the 24 hours of Le Mans in 1924, 1927, 1928, 1929, 1930. Recently, Bentley returned to racing and captured victory at Le Mans in 2003. Today, Bentley is headquartered in Crewe, England, where it assembles all of its models. North American headquarters are in Herdon, Virginia.
