Artist's Description

A beautiful Bentley motor car with Monaco Number Plates sitting in the sun at Beaulieu sur Mer on the French Riviera. I did have to consult the web to get some information on the make of car as normally I cannot tell my cars from my elbow.
But I do know a classy car when I see one.
Bentley Motors Limited is an English manufacturer of luxury cars owned since 1998 by Volkswagen Group. Bentley was founded a few weeks after the Armistice with Germany on 18 January 1919 by W. O. Bentley. Before that Bentley had been known for importing and driving light DFP cars with considerable success and in the first World War for the design of his range of rotary aero-engines, the most famous being the Bentley BR1 as used in later versions of the Sopwith Camel. After that war, W. O. Bentley designed and made production cars that won the 24 hours of Le Mans in 1924 and following models which repeated those successes each June 1927, 1928, 1929, and 1930.
Purchased by Rolls-Royce in 1931, when the factory was sold, and production stopped for 2 years, the name alone was used for a Rolls-Royce “silent sports car” made at the Rolls-Royce factory in Derby, and after 1945 in Crewe. The business is now based in Crewe, Cheshire, England, with the Central Production Facilities there. As of November 2012, China is the largest individual market for Bentley automobiles.
