Paul Bentley MIMI MAE


Paul BentleyBorn in Cheshire, Paul’s passion for classic cars was inspired by

his grandfather’s competition within the Historic Motor Club, his

father’s body repair business and his uncle’s historic research

and author on The History of Oulton Park taking him to the

circuit most weekends throughout the season.


Paul served his automotive apprenticeship with a North West respected body repairer, specialising in prestigious marques. A member of the Institute of the Motor Industry for 15 years and a Masters in Automobile Engineering gives Paul a thorough understanding of engineering, originality, quality and attention to detail.


He enjoys attending historic motoring events throughout Europe, be it amongst others, the Grand Prix Historique de Monaco, Silverstone Classic or Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este and regularly attends auction houses world wide on client’s behalf.

His enthusiasm for vintage Bentleys, style and quality of Gullwing Mercedes and pre 1980’s Ferrari’s are a school boy dream.


In 2005, Paul founded Bentleys Automotive, a full service, multi modal, global transporter of collector’s cars on behalf of world wide clients, (whether marque dealerships, auction houses, collectors car dealers or private collectors).


Along with Bentleys Automotive, in 2008 he created ‘The Fine Car Store’ catering for the needs of existing clients offering a bespoke storage solution based in the heart of rural Cheshire.


Focused to provide and maintain a quality of service and client management, Paul continues to build a market leading reputation.
