Walter Owen (W.O.) Bentley established the company on July 10, 1919. A decade later, celebrations for the Bentley Motors Centenary took place in some of the world’s biggest cities. The most recent was held in New York City on October 20, 2019. For the public, a series of parades featuring a fleet of Bentleys from the past, present and future descended onto Manhattan the day before to celebrate Bentley’s 100 year anniversary. For Bentley owners and enthusiasts, a day filled with three special events took place Sunday to celebrate the Centenary.
