Estimate:
€130,000 - €160,000


Recent cosmetic refresh
RHD example, delivered new to the UK
Fitted with a later S3-style nose

The Bentley S2 Continental Flying Spur offered here was completed by the factory in September of 1960 and built as a right-hand-drive example. It is noted as being delivered to the UK market and purchased new by H Stenhouse. At some point, the car’s front end was revised to have a quad-headlight nose from the later S3 Continental. Bentley themselves converted some S2s to have S3-style noses in-house, although it is not known if this car’s conversion was done by Bentley.

Previous UK MoT’s from the 1980s and 1990s accompany the car’s history file, and the S2 has remained in Portugal for at least the past five years. More recently, the car has just received some cosmetic work, which included a repaint in its present dark blue.

Still considered stately and attractive nearly six decades after leaving the factory, this Bentley S2 would impress wherever it goes.



Recente intervenção cosmética

Exemplar de condução à direita, entregue novo no Reino Unido

Recebeu secção dianteira mais moderna do S3

O Bentley S2 Continental Flying Spur aqui apresentado saiu da fábrica em setembro de 1960, com volante à direita. Está documentado que foi especificado para o mercado britânico, tendo sido comprado por H. Stenhouse. A certa altura da sua história a sua secção dianteira foi atualizada com os quatro faróis típicos do modelo posterior, o S3 Continental. Sabe-se que a própria Bentley converteu a frente de alguns S2 em S3, mas não se apurou se é o caso deste exemplar.

Estão incluídos na sua documentação alguns certificados de inspeção do Reino Unido, nos anos 80 e 90, e este S2 está em Portugal, pelo menos, há cinco anos. Mais recentemente recebeu uma intervenção cosmética, que incluiu a pintura no azul escuro atual.

Continuando a ser imponente e belo, quase seis décadas depois de ser produzido, este Bentley S2 causará impacto aonde quer que vá. To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/pg19.
