The Bentley S1 Continental Sports Saloon: A Classic Car with Timeless Elegance

The Bentley S1 Continental Sports Saloon is a passenger car from Bentley, with rear wheel drive, a front positioned engine and a H.J. Mulliner-styled 2 door coupé body style. It was produced by Bentley Motors Limited from 1955 until 1959.

A 4.9-liter naturally aspirated engine powers the Bentley S1 Continental Sports Saloon. This engine has a 6-cylinder configuration, side exhaust valve gear, an overhead inlet, and two valves per cylinder. The highest speed of the car is close to 120 mph.

The Silver Cloud, Rolls-Royce's regular production vehicle following World War II, served as the basis for the S1. Each was its manufacturer's final regular production vehicle with a separate chassis. In late 1959, the Rolls-Royce - Bentley L Series V8 engine was installed in the S-series Bentley.

The S1 Continental continued the legacy of the previous R-Type as a stunning coachbuilt four-seater with a top speed of about 120 mph. They were built by a variety of different contractors, and almost all of them were magnificent. The 99 Park Ward coupés and the 151 HJ Mulliner fastbacks were the best.
