Bentley Motors Limited is a British luxury passenger car company founded on 18 January 1919 by Walter Owen Bentley, known as W. O. Bentley or just “W O”. The Bentley brand was previously known for its line of rotary aircraft engines used during World War I, the most famous of which was the Bentley BR1, which was used in later versions of the Sopwith Camel aircraft.

In 1931, Rolls-Royce bought Bentley, and production moved from London to Derby and later to Crewe.
