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 T2's had found customers compared with over 10,500 Rolls-Royce Shadow II's and today this arguably more handsome car is increasingly sought after.
Our stunning Bentley T2 is finished in a stunning and chic colour combination of Masons Black, complemented by a lovely contrasting Red coachline, the paintwork and coachwork are in superb condition. As expected, the stylish interior emanates luxury and class with a beautiful Red Connolly hide interior and matching Red carpets with the additional luxury of lambswool overrugs.
The beautiful wooden 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.
Extremely rare in this most distinguished colour scheme and definitely one of the finest T2 Bentley motor cars available anywhere.
