Bentley S3 Continental

In 1965, Rolls-Royce began production of the Silver Shadow and Bentley T-Series models with unitised construction, disc brakes and hydraulic self-levelling suspension. The Silver Cloud III and Bentley S3 models were the last cars produced with separate chassis and body and, thus, the last series of cars offered with custom coachwork.

This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in October of 2011 at the Battersea Evolution, London.

220 hp, 6,230 cc OHV V-8, four-speed automatic transmission, independent front suspension with unequal-length wishbones and coil springs, opposed piston hydraulic dampers and torsion roll bar, semi-elliptic rear springs with electrically-controlled piston-type dampers and single radius rods, hydro-mechanical power assisted front and rear drum brakes, right-hand drive. Wheelbase: 3,125 mm.
