Bentley Motors Limited is known for making some really nice cars. Unlike the nice cars made in Italy or Germany, Bentley is British. So, as you’ll see from Autobytel’s gallery of Bentley pictures, these cars definitely have a touch of class. They’re high performance cars, to be sure, but elegance is certainly a high priority in the design, development and execution of a Bentley car. Take, for example, the Flying Spur, which is well represented in our collection of Bentley photos. Introduced in 2005, it’s a sedan version of the Continental GT coupe. It’s not all that common for a car manufacturer to turn a two-door car into a four-door car, and even rarer still for the transformation to actually look good. The Flying Spur is every bit as athletic looking as its sibling, yet it looks just as elegant, too.
Founded in 1919, Bentley has a long history of blending speed and luxury; the Flying Spur is just one recent example. The original Continental GT can be seen there, of course, along with some older Bentley models that personify the brand’s aesthetic. Bentley was briefly involved in Le Mans racing in the 1920s and 1930s, under the direction of its former parent company, Rolls-Royce. Bentley is now owned by Volkswagen AG, and certain subtle elements of current Bentley models are evident throughout VW’s Audi luxury brand. Of course, Autobytel’s album of Bentley images is filled with plenty of other models that demonstrate a skilled blending of style and performance.
