THE AGE OF ENDEAVOUR
BONHAMS CELEBRATES THE CENTENARY OF BENTLEY WITH LANDMARK EXHIBITION
On Friday 12 April, Bonhams New Bond Street saleroom will be dedicated to Bentley, when it hosts the Age of Endeavour exhibition in celebration of the legendary marque’s centenary.
One hundred years of the racing Bentley is illustrated by 100 pieces of memorabilia, including artefacts that once belonged to W.O. Bentley, F.T. Burgess, and J.D. Benjafield, as well as items that epitomise the legendary race meetings at both Brooklands and Le Mans. Also included are period photographs, posters and trophies that define an age - The Age of Endeavour.
In addition to the memorabilia, four iconic Bentley team cars will be on display in the main saleroom.
Sholto Gilbertson, Motoring Department Director, commented: “This is an absolutely unmissable event for fans of British motoring. Bentley is one of the finest British creations, and it is a privilege to be hosting this landmark exhibition at Bonhams. This collection of memorabilia and motor cars is unique in its breadth, and truly showcases the astonishing achievements of one of the world’s best-loved and most successful marques.”
The exhibition is open on one day only, Friday 12 April, and is free to attend – no tickets or registration are required.
