2013 marks the 90th anniversary of the Le Mans 24 Hours Race, France's epic test of endurance.
Bentley won the race five times between 1924 and 1930, securing its place in Le Mans legend. 10 years ago, Bentley once again claimed a historic first place at the race.
This documentary celebrates the achievements of the Bentley marque and the illustrious group of Gentlemen Racers known as 'The Bentley Boys'.
On the trail of the Bentley boys in the Bentley Blue Train
In 1930, Bentley Boy Woolf Barnato bet £100 that he could race the famous
Le Train Bleu from Cannes to London before the train could reach Calais. 83
years on, Steve Cropley tells the story.

In January 1930 Rover claimed its Light Six had gone faster the Le Train Bleu, one of the world's
most luxurious trains, which ran from Cannes in the south of France to
Calais in the north. One evening at dinner, Bentley Boy Woofe Barnato said
that was nothing special, and he could race the Blue Train, reach Calais,
cross the English Channel and reach the Conservative Club in London before
the train arrived in Calais. He succeeded with four minutes to spare. Here,
Steve Cropley retraces the Bentley Boys' London haunts in the very car than
Barnato made the journey.

Behind The Wheel: 2014 Bentley New Continental GTC V8 S
The Continental name has been a part of the Bentley family since the early
1950s and though the 2014 Bentley New Continental GTC V8 S ($216,000) (a
mouthful) remains relatively unchanged in it's iconic style and its
interior club room feel that rivals Ron Burgundy's rich mahogany office, it
is what's under the skin of this Monaco Yellow grand touring torpedo that
sets itself apart from previous generations.
