The Bentley name is synonymous with high performance British luxury cars for the well heeled. After 60 years of ownership by Rolls Royce, Bentley Motors has flourished since being acquired by Volkswagen in 1998. The Continental GT coupe has spawned new sporty variants, while the stately Mulsanne sedan is a legitimate alternative to the Rolls-Royce Phantom. More exclusive than the German premium brands, Bentley has carved out its own niche with a combination of distinctive styling, luxury and performance.
