Description

The Bentley T-Series was the Bentley badged version of the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow, available as a four or two door saloon with coachwork by James Young or Mulliner Park Ward. The Bentley differed from its Rolls-Royce equivalent with its more rounded front grill, while the badging on the wheel covers, boot lid and gauges naturally featured Bentley motifs rather than the Rolls-Royce logo. In October 1966, the ‘T’ saloon’s pre-tax ‘list price’ of £5,375 undercut the Rolls-Royce by £50. The Bentley was technically an identical twin of the Rolls-Royce and seemed to have been purchased mostly by owners wishing for a more understated luxury saloon. The earlier sporting image of Bentley motorcars differing from Rolls-Royces had gone by the time the Silver Shadow/Bentley ‘T’ was introduced and this was no longer a primary reason to purchase a Bentley over the Rolls-Royce sibling.

First registered in 1979, this later T2 model has been in the custodianship of long term owners for a number of years, during which time has been well maintained by Bentley specialists. In the current ownership the T2 has benefitted from c. £4,500 in maintenance in the last 18 months. Offered with a history file containing invoices and a number of older MOT certificates, with Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow prices increasing significantly of late, why not consider the even rarer Bentley option?
