The Bentley S2 Saloon is a luxury car produced by Bentley Motors LTD between 1959 and 1962. It was the successor of the Bentley S1. The S2 Saloon was available in various body styles including a four-door saloon, a two-door Coupé and a convertible. The car was equipped with a 6.2-liter V8 engine producing 172 horsepower and a top speed of about 180 km/h. The interior was spacious and luxurious, with high-quality materials and handcrafted finishes. What distinguished the S2 sedan from its predecessor was the introduction of the self-supporting body, which ensured better rigidity and stability of the car. There were also some design refinements, such as the higher headlights and larger rear window. The S2 saloon was popular with celebrities and influential people, including Queen Elizabeth II and the Beatles. It symbolizes an era in British motoring history when car manufacturers focused on producing luxury cars that exuded class, style and refinement. A total of 2308 were produced, making the car quite rare.
The cars on offer are part of a static collection that has been accumulated over the last 40 years. They are mainly in an unrestored, original but dusty condition. We have not tried to start any of the cars. We have been informed that the engines have been turned, on a regular basis, but the exact condition of the cars and the engines is unknown to us.
