1957 BENTLEY S1 - €Auction

  • 79084 1

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' The Sáragga Collection event, 20 - 21 September 2019. Estimate:40,000 - 60,000 Patinated interior, full of characterSold with copies of the original build sheets The all-new Silver Cloud and Bentley S-Type were introduced in early 1955 as replacements for the Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn and Bentley R-Type. Fast, relatively economical, and cheaper to maintain than the V-8engined successors, the elegant S-Type is arguably the most user-friendly of all post-war Bentleys.According to its original build sheet, B285EK was specified in Black Pearl Valspar with a single deep red line, red hide with red piping, a fawn headcloth, and a maroon carpet. However, it appears that this was changed to Shell Grey over Black Pearl Valspar on the build sheet. Required by its first owner on 1 September 1957, this imposing car surely didnt disappoint. Now more than 60 years old, the car retains many original features, including the supplying dealer plate of W M Couper Ltd and what is very likely its original interior. This stunning S1 Saloon demands to be used and is far from ready for retirement. Interior com pátina, repleto de personalidadeVendido com cópias das fichas de fabrico originaisO novíssimo Silver Cloud e o Bentley S-Type foram introduzidos no início de 1955 como substitutos do Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn e do Bentley R-Type. Rápido, relativamente económico e com manutenção mais simples do que os sucessores com motores V8, o elegante S-Type é sem dúvida o mais fácil de usar de todos os Bentley do pós-Guerra.De acordo com a sua ficha de fabrico, o B285EK foi especificado em preto Black Pearl Valspar com uma única faixa em vermelho escuro, couro encarnado com rebordos da mesma cor, forro de teto fulvo e tapetes vermelho escuro. No entanto, parece que foi alterado para cinza Shell Gray sobre preto Black Pearl Valspar na ficha de fabrico. Entregue ao seu primeiro proprietário a 1 de setembro de 1957, este automóvel imponente certamente não dececionou. Agora, com mais de 60 anos de idade, mantém muitas características originais, incluindo a placa do distribuidor de W M Couper Ltd e, provavelmente, o interior original. Este impressionante S1 Saloon pede para ser usado e está longe de pensar na reforma.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/pg19.
