1957 Bentley Continental S1 Sports Coupe Vehicle Profile

1957 Bentley Continental S1
Sports Coupe
Coachwork: Park Ward & Co.
The S1 Park Ward Continental Coupe is a unique, high performance car and is one of 33 left-drive examples built by coachbuilder Park Ward. It was intended to be larger and more generously sized than the previous R-Type models and was specifically manufactured for motoring at high speeds. Faster speed was enabled by a 3-inch longer wheelbase, increased engine capacity to a 4996 c.c. six-cylinder engine, the MC21C. It represents the end of independent chassis era and further adds to the uniqueness of the car. The body was modified in design and beautifully proportioned without reducing headroom and with an enlarged luggage boot for added comfort. The original color was Circassian Blue accompanied by beige hides which has remained to this day. There were four previous owners. The original restoration project was completed by the fourth owner in 2012. It is now part of a Bentley car collection in East Hampton, New York.
