1961 Bentley S2 Saloon Vehicle Profile

1961 Bentley S2
Saloon
Most of the S2 models produced were given the Bentley Standard Steel Saloon coachwork.

The S2 Saloon is powered by the all-alloy V8 engine that was introduced at the 1959 London Motor Show. It was also available in its cousin, the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II. This new powerplant offered about 200 horsepower and due to its lightweight construction, offered tremendous performance. Other new mechanical features included the Hydramatic transmission, power steering and upgraded power assisted brakes. The inside of the S2 was given an updated dashboard which included improved gages.

The current owner restored the vehicle in 2011.
