This magnificent S1 Fastback reg TLP 757 is one of only three vehicles built to this particular specification. The specification of which is known as ‘KATE’, this featured manual steering and a manual gearbox. The launch of the Bentley S1/ Rolls-Royce Silver cloud lead the company succumbing to the Americans for an automatic gearbox and power steering which was then fitted to all vehicles onwards. Thus, truly it can be said that ‘KATE’ is the last of ‘The British Luxury Sports Cars’. It is also believed that this vehicle was owned once by Prince Philip at some point.
