The first Bentley sports cars were unequaled in their time. After designing aero-engines for the R.A.F. in WWI, Walter Owen Bentley redirected his attention to motor cars. Launched in 1921, his first model was intended to appeal to sportsmen of the motoring world. Powered by a three-liter, 2,966-cubic centimeter four-cylinder engine, it was an immediate success. In January 24, 1920, The Autocar published their first road test: A Car which Combines Docility in Traffic with Exceptional Speed Potentiality on the Open Road. The car was continually improved, as The Autocar of January 16, 1925, read, Impressions of the Latest Model, which is Suitable Alike for the Speed Lover and the Potterer.
