Nostalgia Classic Cars is pleased to be able to show the 1956 Bentley S1. The Bentley S1 (originally simply "Bentley S") was a luxury car produced by Bentley Motors Limited from 1955 until 1959.
The S1 was derived from Rolls-Royce's complete redesign of its standard production car after World War II, dubbed the Silver Cloud; each was its maker's last standard production car with an independent chassis.
The S-series Bentley was given the Rolls Royce- Bentley L series V8 engine in late 1959, and designated the S2. Twin headlamps and a facelift to the front arrived in late 1962, resulting in the model designation S3.
In late 1965 the S3 was replaced by the completely new monocoque Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow-derived T series.
