Description

"Predating Bentley’s 1980s resurgence, the T1 was produced in far fewer numbers than the equivalent Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow, the ratio being 11:1 in the Shadow’s favour, making the Bentley considerably rarer today. On the road, the T-Series afforded its owners the advantage of an eye-line higher than that of most other cars, giving its occupants a commanding view of their surroundings while electrically adjustable seats ensured unrivalled comfort. Summing up the ownership experience in 1989, Classic & Sportscar observed, 'There's plenty of pleasure to be had from driving a Silver Shadow or T1, probably at town speeds more than anything. You learn to cope with its size very quickly. It soothes its driver like no other car.'
Originally registered on 17th April 1970, this imposing British classic is presented in dark blue with a matching dark blue leather interior. This motor car epitomises everything one would expect from a luxury motor car and is a joy to drive or indeed to be driven in. This car is supplied with a V5C registration document and we are advised a fresh MoT test  will be carried out prior to the auction. Given the rarity of this Bentley, she appears to be very realistically estimated."
