The Bentley brand has been around since 1919 when one of the Bentley brothers (W.O. Bentley) decided that he wanted to design and develop a car that carried his name on the car. From the beginning Bentley had troubles with production and cost, but this did not stop this company from creating cars that were stunning to look at and that many people desired to own. Once Bentley became established enough to produce cars for a few years it then became possible for people to purchase a Used Bentley in lieu of the much more expensive newer models.
As the years passed W.O. Bentley was forced to sell his shares in his own company because he could not financially support it. That is because he was creating new and innovative ways to to upgrade his cars but he was not selling enough to justify the cost of a manufacturing plant and employees. What's more, even as orders were coming in he had difficulty producing the cars on time and the Bentley name became known for having a back log on orders. This back log actually crated a higher demand for Bentley's cars and buying a Used Bentley was often done because a new one simply was not available.
Since the early days, Bentley has been sold a total of four times and has been owned by W.O. Bentley, Woolf Barnato, Rolls Royce and now Volkswagen. It was the Rolls Royce company, however that put Bentley on the map by changing the way that it looked from the original models. Although many Bentley lovers hated the new line, Rolls Royce brought in new Bentley enthusiasts with this high end line. The new line forced and even higher demand for what is now considered the classic Used Bentley.
Today Bentley is synonymous for two things, how much it costs and their beautiful luxury cars. With Volkswagen at the helm, Bentley has sold over 10,000 cars for the first time in Bentley history. What's more, for the first time in history Bentley is financially self sufficient and cannot keep up on its orders because of its popularity. People who buy a Used Bentley has increased as well as more and more people are sitting up and taking notice of Bentley and want to own one of their own.
