    Andrew Frankel is a British car journalist who has contributed to Autocar magazine for over thirty years and MotorSport magazine for over twenty. In addition, he was the chief car tester for The Sunday Times newspaper for seventeen years, and he currently makes regular contributions to The Daily Telegraph. He is also a columnist for Goodwood Road & Racing, and sits on the Car of the Year jury. Bentleys have been part of Andrew’s life since he was just four years old, when his father bought a vintage 41/2-litre Bentley—which still remains with his family to this day. Andrew has driven examples of nearly every car featured between these covers, and for the last ten years, he has raced a 1921 3-litre TT Bentley, the oldest Bentley racing in the world today. In 2003, he wrote the award-winning Bentley: The Story, which was hailed as the definitive history of the marque. When he is not driving cars, he lives quietly on the border between England and Wales with his wife, two daughters and far too many animals.
