Bentley 1958 Bentley Continental S1 History Specifications
Share On

Sold for $561,000 at 2017 RM Auctions : Amelia Island.
The Bentley S1 Continental was produced in very limited numbers from 1955 through 1959. There were only 33 left-hand drive bodies made by Park Ward in the fixed head coupe style.

The S1 Continental was designed for drivers in search of high-speed touring. The body is completely aluminum paneled for light weight. The inline six-cylinder 4.9-liter engine develops 178 horsepower and is coupled to a four-speed automatic transmission. Top speed is listed at 120 mph, and Bentley claimed the Continental S1 as the fastest four-seat coupe in the world.

This newly restored example is adorned in a two-tone paint combination of antelope over garnet that underlines the elegant design of this coach-built Bentley. The sumptuous rose beige leather seats are piped in contrasting deep burgundy. The wooden dashboard and door caps are finished in finely detailed wood veneer.
