Known History

The Bentley S series represents the last of the coach built cars, and while most examples featured the standard steel saloon bodies, a few were built with Mulliner Park Ward Continental bodywork in light alloy. The lighter weight and reduced frontal area permitted higher speeds, and the brakes were upgraded with an unusual four shoe arrangement on the front wheels. These cars are part of the legendary Continental line, and the second series cars combine the mechanical refinement of the later cars (including the recently introduced aluminum 6.2 liter V8), with the more coherent styling of the earlier cars. Thanks to their well proportioned and comparatively modern bodies, and motivated by the new V8 engine, these cars were meant for owner-drivers, as compared to their Rolls-Royce cousins, whose owners were used to being driven instead.
