Surely Mr. David Tulloch is not suggesting for one minute that the “real” Bentleys were better cars than the Rolls-Bentleys were? If Bentleys had survived the “depression” of the Thirties (and it is a pity that they did not) I sincerely doubt that they would have been able to build a car which could have matched up in any way to the Mk. VI, which Rolls-Royce so courageously introduced in the very difficult period after the last war.
In any case, even a pre-war 3 1/2-litre Bentley, made by Rolls-Royce, could lick the heels off “any fast lorry,” and was built to standards that none have bettered.
