The Bentley S1 Continental was once considered both the fastest and the most expensive road car in the world. Its top speed was 120 mph, in an era where a standard road cars top speed, was roughly half of that. The thing that makes the Bentley so special isnt just the speed, its how effortlessly this beautiful motorcar reaches it. The comfort is often described as being similar to that of your favourite armchair. Its brilliantly British and every aspect from the engine to the coachwork was handcrafted by experts of each trade.

This Park Ward, 2-door matching numbers saloon (BC49CH, BC48C) was originally purchased in 1957, supplied by Jack Barclay of London. There are some early servicing records that would suggest that this car has been well looked after during its early life. The majority of the paper work starts from 1990 when the car was converted to a drophead by AB Price. The interior (including the hood) has since been re-trimmed twice, the most recent being in 2015 when over £50,000 was invested on the interior, woodwork & chrome by coachwork specialists Simtrim. Between engineering specialists Padgett Motor Engineers, Bentley experts Frank Dale & Stepsons and Simtrim, this car has undergone £200,000 worth of restoration & servicing since 1990. The attention to detail really shows on the car, and its recommended to arrange a viewing to appreciate this stunning example.

The car is offered as part of a two car collection, however both cars can be purchased separately. When together, they make a powerful statement, combined with the matching colours it is an impressive spectacle. When apart, both cars still hold their own and would be a great addition to any classic car collection. Both cars start effortlessly, these are not museum pieces and have been setup/maintained to be driven. The current owners private collection manager has cherished these cars and has always ensured the cars do not sit stagnant whilst the owner is away on business. The cars are being sold to pave way for a very special project.
