    This year Bentley is celebrating its 100th birthday. For this occasion Autoworld would like to present you some of the brand’s finest pieces. During the months of May and June, about 15 classic- and modern Bentley’s will be presented in the temporary exhibition areas on the ground floor. On the first podium there will be a number of pre-war Bentley’s: a 4,5L ‘Blower’, a 3L Speed Model and a 8L Berline. A couple of coupé’s and convertibles, a S1 berline and a Mulsanne will represent the post-war models. With the support of Bentley Belgium we can also show you the latest masterpieces of the brand. Discover the SUV Bentayga, the brand new GTC and many more. As always the scale models will be the icing on the cake. Bentley in short: Walter Owen Bentley wanted to built “a fast car, the best of its class”. He has endlessly repeated these words, before he found the brand of the ‘Flying B’ in 1919. Right from the very beginning Bentley cars enjoyed an enormous success, with demand exceeding any production possibilities. The halo of prestige that the make’s drivers – the Bentley Boys – encircled was enough to create a mythical image, similar to the one we would come across later with such names as Bugatti, Alfa Romeo and Ferrari. The 3-litre machines were victorious at Le Mans in 1924 and 1927, with a further success in 1928 for the 4.5-litre. According to rival Ettore Bugatti it was “the fastest truck in the world”. In 1931 the company, which was facing a chronic capital shortage, was acquired by its arch rival Rolls Royce. It was the period of the Derby Bentley, so-called because they were built in the Rolls Royce factory of Derby. The Mark VI was the first post-war model, produced in the new factory based in Crewe. The Bentley cars of this period can be considered to be sportier versions of the Rolls. Since its acquisition by the Volkswagen Group in 1998, the make has developed into a classy and sporty marque, notably with the GTC.

    Just this once won’t hurt. This summer the Tour de France will set-off from Brussels!To celebrate the event, Autoworld is organising, in parallel with the exhibition celebrating the hundredth anniversary of the make Citroën, a truly unique retrospective of the history of cycling and its legends since its beginnings in 1819. Let’s also remember that the halls that currently house the museum were the venue of the first Motor and Cycle Show’s as from 1902. An unusual exhibition This historic moment in the history of the sport will be retraced in the exhibition “Cycling Legends” based on 3 major themes: * 200 years of history of the greatest champions (1819 - 2019), * the gallery of 100 years of the yellow jersey (1919 - 2019) * and a page exclusively dedicated to the greatest Belgian champions (1919 - 2019). Loads of emotion in sight for each visitor, as they come across bicycles of former champions, their jerseys, their trophies, old rare posters and various historical documents. The fruits of 30 years of research and collecting, 200 years of cycling history will be on show. The first ever official races in 1869, the first major “town-to-town” events as from 1891 which were to become classics, show races on the track from the roaring twenties, the championships, the globalisation of cycling as from the 1990’s, it’s a whole world being displayed over a period of two months next summer, allowing the visitor to relive the greatest moments of this highly popular sport. More than 600 unique objects, rarely or never exhibited before. Among others, and by way of their equipment and their anecdotes, one will come across Maurice Garin, the first winner of the Tour de France in 1903, the Campionissimo Fausto Coppi, Alberick Schott, Rik Van Steenbergen, Freddy Maertens, Joop Zoetemelk, Francesco Moser, Roger De Vlaminck, Eddy Merckx, Bernard Hinault, Lucien Van Impe, Chris Boardman, Mario Chipollini, Johan Museeuw, Eugène Christophe the first wearer of the yellow jersey in 1919 and Firmin Lambot the first Belgian in yellow in Paris in that same year, as also more than 30 yellow jerseys of the greatest champion winners of the Tour de France (Louison Bobet, Jacques Anquetil, Louis Ocana, Eddy Merckx, Bernard Thévenet, Miguel Indurain, Greg Lemond, Alberto Contador, Cadel Ewans, Chris Froome...). The” Cycling Legends” exhibition is organised in collaboration with the collector Emmanuel Dehan, who very kindly loaned us his collection. Visitors who so wish can also have access to the museum and its exhibition “Citroën 100 Years” with a combined ticket.
