BENTLEY’S TO BUILD AGAIN
NEGOTIATIONS WITH NAPIERS NOW COMPLETED.
Everyone interested in motoring was glad to see the official announcement that an agreement has finally been reached by which the famous firm of Bentley Motors Ltd., who recently suspended business, is to be taken over by the Napier concern. Negotiations had been in progress for a considerable time, but were coAcluded after Ca pt ain Wolf Barnato’s recent return from America. Napiers have already had experience in the making of quality cars, while W. 0. Bentley, the designer of the Bentley, was the creator of one of the finest aero engines of
its class ever built. He will be connected with the new company, as will Wolf Barnato, and the result of the amalgamation should have every chance of success. A new 3litre car is said to form part of the new programme, while the famous 8-litre will be continued.
