Bentley S1 Saloon, year 1959. Colour: two-tone, black over silver combined with a dark red leather interior and carpet. This gorgeous left-hand drive (LHD) Bentley S1 saloon is in excellent condition and the automobile drives perfectly. The last owner has spent a lot of money to bring this fine Bentley to excellent condition, the body was given beautiful new paint and the interior was upholstered brand new using first class leather. All the wood panels in the interior are beautifully varnished. This ultra-luxurious Bentley features a 4.9 Litre six-cylinder engine which is mated to a 4-speed automatic gearbox. The engine runs very smooth and the gearbox shifts silently and decisively. Also fitted are power steering and servo operated brakes, the level of assistance is superb; the big and heavy automobile can be steered and handled with a minimum of effort from the driver. Recently the brakes were fully rebuilt, and new tyres were fitted. The Bentley S1 is a rare automobile, only 3170 examples (RHD & LHD combined) were hand-build in the period 1955 - 1959. This is a hard to find LHD example in excellent condition!
We are delighted to offer this magnificent motor car onto the market. This very special S Series Continental with H.J Mulliner coachbuilt body is the first variant of its type and is finished in a beautiful colour of Seychelles Blue with Blue leather upholstery. Interestingly, although the car now is equipped with an automatic transmission, it did leave the factory with a manual gearbox and its believed only four examples in the S1 Continental Flying Spur range were ever built with this option. We can confirm also that this 1 of just 19 ‘D’ Series Flying Spur’s in a total of 167 RHD examples built to Design number 7443. 603 HYP was registered new on the 7 th December 1957 and was supplied in London W1 to the Chairman of a private bank, Brown, Shipley & Co. The Bentley was purchased by Mr Angus MacKinnon Esq as a present for his wife, housed at their Hampshire based property. The Bentley six-light sports saloon was later sold on the 28 th October 1960 to Berkley Square Garages, Berkley Square, London W1. The Rolls Royce Bentley dealership supplied the car to Adams & Adams Ltd of New Malden, Surrey two years later. 603 HYP changed hands again in 1964, this time spending 19 years with
1958 Bentley S1 Continental Flying Spur One of 18 built, this is the definitive, bespoke high-performance luxury motorcar of its era. The S1 Continental was a lighter and more sporting model than the standard chassis, having a reduced weight of some 225 pounds. It also has the proven and reliable 6-cylinder engine that is coupled to the smooth Hydramatic 4-speed automatic transmission. This example features a factory sunroof and factory R100 headlights. This is the finest example to come to market in recent years, having recently completed a Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance-quality restoration.

Chassis No: BC 73 BG Engine No: BC 72 B Registration No: YSU 605 The success of the R-Type Continental ensured that a similar lightweight high performance version of the S-Type would be offered as part of the Bentley range and consequently the S 1 Continental was produced between 1955 and 1959 with a production run of 431 chassis. The robust 4.9 litre, six cylinder engine was retained but with higher compression, more efficient cylinder head porting and performance enhancing exhaust and cam-shaft. The chassis was also up-rated and benefited from hydraulic servo brakes and ride control. The result was 120 mph performance in comfort and style.

The car was commissioned to the order of the Countess of Suffolk and was delivered to her in the Florida in January 1957. An highly unusual choice not only b
