VotW – William Medcalf – Living Life as a Bentley Boy

World-renowned vintage Bentley specialist William Medcalf is proud to be the subject of one of the latest films to be released by celebrated film-maker and car magazine Petrolicious. The evocative film perfectly captures the spirit of William Medcalf and gives an insight into what drives his passion for vintage Bentleys while entertaining the viewer with fantastic cinematography that shows exactly how these cars are best used.

The 10-minute piece was filmed in the beautiful Sussex countryside, in the areas surrounding William Medcalf’s workshop and headquarters in Liss. This area not only provides the perfect driving roads but also shows England at its very best.

William tells the story behind his life-long passion for vintage Bentleys, and how he feels the cars should be driven today. “Anything with wheels should be raced. Everything with wheels should be driven to the limit,” he says. He also takes us on a tour of William Medcalf Vintage Bentley, providing an insight into why his business is regarded as the only place to go for vintage Bentleys, be it sales, service, race preparation or parts.

William said: “It was an honour to work with the talented team at Petrolicious, and I am delighted with the film they have created. The real stars of the piece are the cars, and Petrolicious has managed to make already beautiful machinery look even more stunning on this must-watch film.”
