Reputable Bentley factory early service history
Truly Outstanding example
Outwardly distinguishable from the Silver Shadow only by virtue of its different radiator and winged ‘B’ mascot, the T-Series Bentley was introduced alongside its Rolls-Royce sibling in 1965. Mechanically identical, the duo represented a complete break with tradition, being the first of the Crewe factory’s models to employ unitary construction.
In 1977 the model was updated as a Bentley T2 with many improvements over the first series cars. The T2 derivative has become the most collectible of all Silver Shadow and Bentley T Series models because of their rarity and fantastic drivability coupled with handsome proportions and exquisite hand built quality. By the time production ceased in 1980, only 568 Bentley T2s had found customers compared with over 10,500 Rolls-Royce Shadow II’s and today this arguably more handsome car is increasingly sought after.
Available here at DD Classics is a rare Bentley T2 finished in the quintessentially British combination of Brewster Green over sumptuous Tan Connolly hide. Contrasting gold coach lines complete the grandeur that this car emits from its exterior whilst the beautiful Tan Hide interior completes the most desirable and traditional Bentley driver’s colour scheme.
The beautiful Walnut dashboard and trim enhance the cars stunning appearance and with the whole interior emitting pure luxury, this rare T2 is a pleasure to drive on the road. The 4-speed automatic transmission engages into drive seamlessly, and rolls along the road beautifully making it a pleasure to drive. The steering is light but sharp, it begs the question at how so many little miles have been driven in its life time.
Our beautiful T2 has been exceptionally well cared for over its 40 year life, with early history from the Bentley factory, presented in a beautiful condition throughout, this stunning example is in a traditional colour scheme and definitely one of the finest T2 Bentley motor cars available anywhere.
