Bentley rose to fame at Le Mans in the '20s, and the company's return to the sport ten years ago was almost as thrilling. As the world gears up for the 24 Hours of Le Mans race this weekend, Bentley put together this video chronicling not only the company's recent successes, but also a brief history lesson regarding the Bentley Boys, some of the most badass men to have ever walked this Earth.

The Bentley Boys weren't just racing drivers, they were also playboys, competitive sailors, WWI veterans, boxers, horsemen, knights, engineers, fencers, and all-round guys who lived life to the fullest. When is some great director going to make a biopic about the lives of these amazing gentlemen?
