History of Rolls-Royce VS Bentley:
Both companies are very luxurious car brands of Britain and are so different from each other as well as very similar in some fields. Friends Rolls-Royce was started in the year 1906 and Bentley in 1919.
Both companies were different but in the year 1931 Rolls-Royce purchased the Bentley car brand and then they make Bentley cars for approx 70 years. In that period Rolls-Royce and Bentley’s cars were so similar, that only difference was the logo.
People who like Bentley’s logo took that car and the people who like Rolls-Royce’s name and logo were buying that car. Then in 1998, some weird things happen, Rolls-Royce and Bentley’s owner Vickers sold both brands to Volkswagon.
At that time, Volkswagon also buys some more car brands like buggati and Lamborghini etc. BMW also wanted to buy Rolls-Royce but it was too late. Now Volkswagon had Rolls-Royce and Bentley factories, design, employees and everything.
They also have Bentley’s logo and Bentley’s Flying B statue. But BMW didn’t give up, they get to know that they could not buy Rolls-Royce’s logo owner was not Vickers company but the logo was owned by another branch of Rolls Royce which was Rolls-Royce’s aerospace company.
Yes, friends, once, Rolls-Royce was divided into two companies, one was making airplane’s engines and the other one was making cars. So logo’s owner was airplane engine-making company. BMW immediately went there and buy all the rights to the logo.
Then Volkswagon got into big trouble, They had all the factories of Rolls-Royce, designs and employees but BMW become the owner of its logo, so they had to sell Rolls-Royce without the original logo and no one gonna buy Rolls-Royce without its logo.
So BMW and Volkswagon made a deal, BMW bought the iconic grills of Rolls-Royce and its design from Volkswagon in exchange of Rolls-Royce’s logo rights for the next 5 years. Because Volkswagon had already taken orders of Rolls-Royce from customers but they could not make the cars because the logo belongs to BMW so this can decrease the reputation of Volkswagon.
That’s why Volkswagon agrees to give Rolls Royce design rights to BMW. So they can fulfil the already taken orders quickly without any tension. But friends from here Bentley and Rolls-Royce become enemies and competitors to each other.
