Bentley: a word cocooned in luxury and inseparable from the idea of gentlemanly endeavours and success. Despite having owned, polished, cherished and adored your slice of 1919 motoring heritage, there comes a time when one needs to say goodbye. When you find yourself muttering the words “it’s time to sell my Bentley,” rest assured that AutoVIP is here to help…
A brief history of Bentley
Initially a lover of everything that moved, W.O Bentley, the founder of the modern Bentley we know and love, was fascinated by steam trains as a boy. This obsession with pistons, engines and steam was heightened by the advances in mechanical engineering at the time. So much so, that W.O Bentley began to experiment with new alloys in which to enhance the cast iron piston designs of the time.
Using, of all things, an aluminium paper weight as inspiration, (what a genius) he began experimenting with various formulas before settling with a mixture of 88% aluminium and 12% copper.
This breakthrough was, as with all pre-war innovations, seized by the war effort of WWI and Bentley found himself using his new piston design with various fighter aircraft. After the war however, he returned to his pursuit of passion and put the wheels in motion to create a relentless mixture of both luxury and performance, spawning the prestige car brand we know today as Bentley.
“To build a fast car, a good car, the best in its class.”
Sell my Bentley Continental GT
Today’s Bentleys are a stunning blend of heritage, modern performance and, let’s be honest, crazily unbeatable suave. As British as cream tea, bulldogs and the Union Flag, Bentleys capture a sense of national identity in the same way as Rolls Royce, Jaguar or Aston Martin.
But then, you know this! You’ve known this since you bought your Bentley and you’ll know this when it’s time to sell your Bentley. As an owner of such a prestigious car, you’ll undoubtedly be wary of who you choose to sell your Bentley. So, why choose AutoVIP?
