.In 1955, a new Bentley, known as the S-Type, was launched using a 4.9 liter, straight six engine. The car continued through three generations, the S1, S2, and S3 - the later cars using an aluminum V8 engine, which is the forerunner of today's 6.75 liter, twin turbocharged V8 engine used in the current Bentley Arnage and the forthcoming Azure.
This classic Bentley convertible was originally delivered to one of Bentley's best, and one of its most famous customers, Mr. Andre Embiricos, the Greek shipping magnate. The car was later sold to a German industrialist living in Switzerland, then to a Swiss-based American photographer. Next the car was shipped to the United States, where it was acquired in 1970 by Mr. Tom Mix, an automobile dealer who is the current owner. It has not been restored, except for repainting it in its original colors, with a new roof and front seat cushions. It has been driven more than 93,000 miles and is one of the finest examples of the S1.
