Thats Right.  

Another Fantastic NO RESERVE auction brought to you by


Autowerks of Northbrook.


Excellent example of a highly sought after classic 1961 Bentley S2 RHD.


Overall the car is in excellent condition with a few minor dings on the hood and pass front door from sitting in storage.


This Bentley was stripped to bare metal and repainted in 1995 with the paint being in excellent condition.   Interior is all original.  


Car runs. drives and stops like any other 45 year old car.   I will upload a video later.


The Bentley S2 (and the high-performance Bentley Continental S2 derived from it) was a luxury car produced by Bentley from 1959 until 1962. The changed designation S2 was to mark the new V8 engine and the improved air conditioning which could now be run from it. Power steering was also standard. and a new dashboard and steering wheel were introduced. Some early S2s were built with the earlier S1 dashboard.

Announced at the beginning of October 1959[1] as with the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II. the S2 replaced the straight-six engine of the Bentley S1 with a new aluminium V8 engine displacing 6. 2 L (6230 cc/380 in³). With this new engine. the S2 offered significantly better performance than the previous cars.

The cylinder block and heads are cast in aluminum alloy and hydraulic tappets operate the overhead valves. The engine has a compression ratio of 8 to 1 and is fitted with twin carburetors with automatic choke.

Other features available include fully automatic transmission. power-assisted steering. electrically operated ride control. redesigned and more flexible air conditioning. electric rear window demisters and press button window lifts.
