1965-1977 BENTLEY T1/T2 specifications

1965-1977 BENTLEY T1/T2 specifications Classic and Performance Car

1965’s T-series was another badge engineering exercise in that the Bentleys were exactly the same as the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadows save for some minute details. This was the first of the marque to have unitary construction, which made it more difficult for coachbuilders to magic up alternative versions. Disc brakes featured on all wheels as did self-levelling suspension. The V8 engine increased to 6750cc in 1970, while the T2 of 1977 had rubber bumpers, a revised dashboard and sharper rack-and-pinion steering.
