When the Bentley S2 was unveiled at the 1959 London Motor Show
it was a sensation. The Bentley flagship model now boasted a 6.2
Litre V8 engine with power steering and a fully automatic
transmission that now came as standard equipment. The S2
Continental chassis took performance a step further with better
braking, higher gearing for freeway cruising, and increasing the
power output to 200hp, resulting in a car that could be propelled
upwards of 110mph. Rolls-Royce and Bentley initially envisioned the
Continental exclusively as a two-door car but the decision was
taken to sanction the production of a four-door variation. The task
was taken on by English coachbuilder H. J. Mulliner & Company. The
final design by George Moseley was designated 7443 and kept the
name of Mulliner's four-door S1 variant; the Flying Spur. Bentley's
S2 Continental Flying Spur was a four-door sport saloon with
sculpted rear fenders and closer, more attractive coupled lines.
The result offered Continental-level performance with four-door
practicality, a spacious interior and generous sized boot, keeping
the S2 Continental in Bentley's tradition of "the silent sports
car". As such, the Mulliner-built Flying Spur S2 Continentals were
among the most luxurious, stylish, and desirable of all the Bentley
