This is a nicely documented, late specification example of 33 left-drives built in 1955-1959. In June of 1957, this sports Coupe was delivered tin Monte Carlo to the Greek Shipping magnate Stavros Niarchos and elegantly finished in Circassian Blue with Beige hides, as it is today.

The factory history record, which accompanies the automobile, shows that it was sold in April of 1961, to its second owner, a resident of Oxford, England.

In 1999, it was purchased by Vantage Motorworks in its original undamaged condition with 66,000 miles.

It was resold in 2003, to a Swiss gentleman who was to export the Bentley to Switzerland for restoration. Plans changed and the project was instead entrusted to a former Vantage Motorworks employee in Boca Raton, Florida, who sporadically worked on the automobile. In 2012, the present owner acquired the car and the attempted refurbishments were properly completed. Complete and correct tools, correctly ducted limousine specification air conditioning, and power steering completed the project and restored the high reliability offered by Bentley, which many consider the finest car in the world at the time.
