Cult Classics are thrilled to offer this extremely rare 1957 Bentley S1 Continental Mulliner Fastback. 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.

The fastest and most expensive vehicle on the road back in 1957, amazing from every angle the fusion of Bentley engineering and the design concept of H.J. Mulliner assembled one of the most desirable motor vehicles of that era. This vehicle features the rare 4-Speed manual transmission, 4.9 Litre Straight Six, Power Steering, Passenger Wing Mirror, Upgraded Modern HI-FI (with Bluetooth/DAB) and De-Mist Function
