Bentley is celebrating its centenary this year

Bring out the cake and letters from the Queen as the bastion of British luxury travel turns 100. Expect to hear a lot about Bentley this year, as celebrations and new model variants abound. Getting the party started is the Bentley Drivers’ Club Centenary Extraordinary Drive from Scotland to Brooklands circuit in Surrey, appropriately the scene of many japes and examples of derring-do that cemented the Bentley reputation as both a fast and glamorous luxury brand. If you’re not driving in it, then look out for a cavalcade of Bentley’s history from the Ides of March.
