Saloon
Coachwork: James Young
Introduced in 1959 and produced until 1962, the Bentley S2 Continental is considered by many to be the greatest model of the S-series, well-known and appreciated for their ample room for passengers and luggage.

The Bentley S1 looked very similar to the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud I and the tradition continued with the S2 and Silver Cloud II. Most S2 bodies were constructed by Bentley. However, a few were built by custom coachbuilders including Hooper, Park Ward, H.J. Mulliner and James Young, the latter being the coachbuilder of the S2 shown here.

Powering the Bentley S2 Continental is an all-aluminum 6230cc V-8 engine with dual SU carburetors, which were used by the company until 1998. The car features Servo-assist drum brakes and an independent front suspension with coil springs, while the rear uses semi-elliptical springs. The S2 Continental was imported to the United States in the 1980s.
