Short Story:

The Bentley T2 somehow gave off that the company had been vague whether Bentley should keep an individual identity. Support for the marque inside the company had deteriorate over recent years. During the prototype stadium of the Rolls Royce Silver Shadow the parallel development of a separate new Bentley model had been aborted. Only early models of the Bentley T1 had shown engine valve covers embossed with the inscription "Bentley" - later models showed the name "Rolls-Royce" on the valve covers. And the Bentley T2 went one step further because the instruments on the facia carried the Rolls-Royce logo of entwined RR instead of the Bentley-B.

It was one of the few cars from Rolls-Royce which were not considered for export to the USA. Sales of Bentley in that market had been microscopic anyway and Rolls-Royce saved the outlay to introduce the Bentley T2 there (although several new Bentley T2 were reported later to have found their way to the USA) . But resurgence was just around the corner and in retrospective - having experienced the brilliant success of the Bentley marque during the 80s - it is open to speculation if the Bentley T2's only problem has been poor marketing by Rolls-Royce?
