Bentley S1 4,9l - 6 cylinder — 1956

This gorgeous luxury car is in a very good condition, and its right-hand drive. It’s been in a museum since 1986. It's just had a startup service and test drive. The same body as the Silver Cloud Rolls Royce.

"The bodywork and interior of this car are in fine condition, with the exception of a small dent on the right front wing (see picture). Because it has been unused for a long time, it requires a service and brake overhaul."

The car was purchased in 1986 as a show-stopper for the Arvika Vehicle Museum by its current owner. The car has only been driven a few times since then, and they have all been solemn occasions. The car was imported from England in 1984 and registered in Karlstad before spending the rest of its life in Värmland. Before it arrived in Sweden, the car had to have exterior panels repainted in England, which was done very well and the paint is still very fresh. The décor is original and has a very nice used feeling. The car starts easily, drives well, and moves smoothly between gears. The brakes, on the other hand, need to be repaired before the car is taken in for an inspection, and a full service is advised. Overall, the car makes a very good impression because it is unusually clean and original. Because of the car's good condition and the fact that it hasn't been driven since 1986, the mileage is unknown, but it appears to have traveled between 100,000 and 150,000 miles.

Facts about the model

Denna modell är identisk med systerbilen från Rolls Royce, endast kylarmaskeringen skiljer dem år. Bilen byggdes från 1955 till 1965 med uppdateringar under åren. Första utförandet, S1 tillverkades bara i 2900 exemplar och man bedömer att en knapp fjärdedel finns kvar idag. På sin tid var det den finaste och mest exklusiva bilen i England, tillsammans med systermodellen från Rolls-Royce. Många betraktar denna bil som den mest vackra och linjesköna av bilarna vid denna tid.
