Footnotes

  • Facing increasing competition from faster rivals and with development of its ageing six-cylinder engine nearing its end, Rolls-Royce turned to V8 power as the 1960s approached. Introduced in the autumn of 1959, the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II and Bentley S2 appeared externally unchanged from their 'Cloud and S-Type predecessors, though the duo's performance was considerably enhanced by the new 6,230cc aluminium-alloy V8 engine. Externally, the new models appeared virtually unchanged, while beneath the skin Rolls-Royce's own four-speed automatic transmission was now the only one on offer and power steering had been standardised.

    This Bentley S2 was purchased new by the vendor's father - Sir John Douglas Clague - and used in the UK before being taken to Hong Kong, returning to the UK in 1970. Sir John died in 1981, and the Bentley remained in the UK until Lady Clague gave it to her son in 1988, since when it has resided in the Isle of Man. Maintained in good original condition, the Bentley received a major service in 2009 for the vendor's daughter's wedding, and is still used for weddings and 'Prom Nights'. It will be driven to the sale. Finished in blue with cream leather interior, the car is offered with Isle of Man Registration Certificate and Declaration of Export.
