 The Bentley Derby (or Derby Bentley) was the first car produced after the company was bought by Rolls Royce in 1931, two years before the death of Henry Royce who died (1863 – 1933).  The name Derby comes from the city of Derby (between Birmingham and Manchester) where Rolls Royce had a factory.

It was built in two series: from A to F, it was equipped with a 3.5-liter engine, from G to L, the displacement increased to 4.5 liters. As almost always at the time, luxury cars were dressed by different prestigious coachbuilders: Vanden Plas, Mulliner, Saoutchik, Figoni and Falaschi, and of course by Barker. Bentley supplied the chassis, gearbox, and radiator.

The coachbuilder Barker was already renowned in the18th century where he made trolleys. He began dressing automobiles in the early twentieth century. But the company struggled to keep up with the significant progress of the automobile during the 20s and 30s, and it was taken over in 1938 by the coachbuilder Hooper who was in turn bought by Daimler in 1940.
