The Bentley sporting tradition was maintained following the acquisition of the financially troubled company by Rolls-Royce Motors Ltd in 1931. It was 1933 before the ''Silent Sportscar'' was announced, developed from the experimental Rolls-Royce 18hp Peregrine chassis and an all-new six-cylinder overhead valve 3,669cc engine for the Bentley 3 1/2-litre. The new cars had a top speed of 90mph, but now with a silence, directly attributable to Rolls-Royce engineering.
