The launch of the S2 Continental in 1959 was the result of Bentley’s continued quest to extend the limits of their innovation with its launch of the legendary lightweight aluminium 6.2L V8 engine. This new V8 engine produced an estimated 200bhp, an increase in power of some 20% from the previous straight six 4.9L 6-cylinder engine. Additionally, the S2 Continental also featured as standard a 4-speed automatic transmission, power assisted steering, electrically operated ride control, press button window lifts plus enhanced air conditioning and window demisters. Additional styling changes were made by a shorter radiator shell and scuttle which resulted in a more slanted bonnet giving the car a sportier appearance. Our car, chassis no.BC18CZ is only one of only 71 right-hand examples ever produced and was delivered new on the 10th November 1961 via HR Owen Mayfair, London. It was commissioned in Circassian Blue as it is presented today. The car was acquired in 1998 by a prominent Bentley Drivers Club member and classic car collector from Perth, Australia who went on to own the car for the next 16 years. When he acquired the car it was based in Brisbane, he then drove all the way back across the country to Perth, some 2,700 miles, accompanied by Wolf Grodd the founder of Sleeping Beauties, one of Australia’s finest restoration companies that as it happens sourced the car for the owner. The car has been beautifully restored throughout and following completion of the restoration it has been maintained without regard to cost by marque specialists including world-renowned Bentley Heritage dealer P&A Wood Ltd. In total the car has had over £100,000 spent on it in the last 7 years alone. The car is accompanied by its tool box and jack, fantastic history file that includes its contemporary maintenance invoices and pictorial restoration images, presented for sale today in superlative condition throughout.
