Vehicle Description

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' The S�ragga Collection event, 20 - 21 September 2019.
Estimate:
€40,000 - €60,000

  • Patinated interior, full of character
  • Sold with copies of the original build sheets


The all-new Silver Cloud and Bentley S-Type were introduced in early 1955 as replacements for the Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn and Bentley R-Type. Fast, relatively economical, and cheaper to maintain than the V-8-engined successors, the elegant S-Type is arguably the most user-friendly of all post-war Bentleys.

According to its original build sheet, B285EK was specified in Black Pearl Valspar with a single deep red line, red hide with red piping, a fawn headcloth, and a maroon carpet. However, it appears that this was changed to Shell Grey over Black Pearl Valspar on the build sheet. Required by its first owner on 1 September 1957, this imposing car surely didn't disappoint. Now more than 60 years old, the car retains many original features, including the supplying dealer plate of W M Couper Ltd and what is very likely its original interior. This stunning S1 Saloon demands to be used and is far from ready for retirement.


  • Interior com p�tina, repleto de personalidade

  • Vendido com c�pias das fichas de fabrico originais


O nov�ssimo Silver Cloud e o Bentley S-Type foram introduzidos no in�cio de 1955 como substitutos do Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn e do Bentley R-Type. R�pido, relativamente econ�mico e com manuten��o mais simples do que os sucessores com motores V8, o elegante S-Type � sem d�vida o mais f�cil de usar de todos os Bentley do p�s-Guerra.

De acordo com a sua ficha de fabrico, o B285EK foi especificado em preto Black Pearl Valspar com uma �nica faixa em vermelho escuro, couro encarnado com rebordos da mesma cor, forro de teto fulvo e tapetes vermelho escuro. No entanto, parece que foi alterado para cinza Shell Gray sobre preto Black Pearl Valspar na ficha de fabrico. Entregue ao seu primeiro propriet�rio a 1 de setembro de 1957, este autom�vel imponente certamente n�o dececionou. Agora, com mais de 60 anos de idade, mant�m muitas caracter�sticas originais, incluindo a placa do distribuidor de W M Couper Ltd e, provavelmente, o interior original. Este impressionante S1 Saloon pede para ser usado e est� longe de pensar na reforma.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/pg19.
