Introduced in the autumn of 1959, the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II and Bentley S2 appeared externally unchanged from their Silver Cloud and S-Type predecessors, though their performance was considerably enhanced by the new 6,230cc aluminium-alloy engine. ‘The Bentley S2, with its sister Rolls-Royce models, gives high-speed travel in silence and luxury, while the driver and passengers enjoy the sense of well being that only British craftsmanship can give.

The V8 engine, with its flashing acceleration, certainly contributes to the result and is a definite step forward in Rolls-Royce technique,’ enthused Autosport. There were few significant changes to the running gear, though power-assisted steering was now standard and the manual gearbox had been dropped, Rolls-Royce’s own four-speed automatic transmission being the sole offering.

The Continental version of the Bentley remained, as ever, exclusively a coachbuilt car. The firms of H J Mulliner, Park Ward, James Young and Hooper (with a solitary example) all offered bodies on the Continental S2 chassis, which differed from the standard version by virtue of its four-leading-shoe front brakes, shorter radiator and, up to chassis number ‘BC99BY’, higher gearing.

Arguably the most influential were those bodied as coupés and dropheads by Rolls-Royce’s in-house coachbuilder Park Ward, and this design by Norwegian Vilhelm Koren, with its continuous front-to-rear wing line hinting at the shape of things to come, would continue on the Continental S3.

Quad headlamps were the S3’s major styling innovation, and on the H J Mulliner, Park Ward-bodied Continental, were contained in slanting nacelles, giving rise to this model’s ‘Chinese Eye’ soubriquet.

Bentley Continental chassis number ‘BC67BY’, although an S2 model dating from 1961 (as confirmed by the accompanying copy chassis cards), has the quad headlamps not adopted on production models until the coming of the S3 in 1962.

The paint work is beautifully finished in the Bentley colour ‘Steel Blue’ and is in excellent condition, the chromework has a high level of sheen and beautifully compliments the paintwork.

The interior is finished in grey hide throughout and like the exterior has been well maintained. To the floor and lower door panels there is deep blue carpet piped in grey hide.

On the road she drives beautifully, pulling well and firing first time every time. In our showroom and ready for viewing.
