On the 10th February 1960, Mr Moens was able to collect his brand spanking new Bentley S2 from the Geneva Bentley dealership in Switzerland. The car remained part of the family until 2016 before it was passed on to a Spanish fanatic Bentley and Rolls-Royce collector.
The car came in this beautiful and incredibly elegant two-tone finish of black over Opal metallic. This treasured possession always received the utmost care which has contributed in no mean way to its current excellent condition. The fine bodywork has correctly aligned nice and thin panelwork. The especially well-maintained bright work shines brilliantly. The paintwork has suffered remarkably little over the years and still presents very well.
The interior is upholstered in its original fine, top-quality light tan leather. The light tan leather and light brown carpets contrast wonderfully well with the two-tone exterior. The wooden dashboard, door panels and fully operational rear folding tables are all in a very good state. The fact this was mainly are chauffeur driven car is reinforced by the cigar lighter mounted on the rear righthand side. Of course the whole
Bentley concept was one of ultimate passenger comfort. That however did not exclude the needs of the chauffeur, who would have benefitted from a grand array of top-quality controls whilst monitoring the car’s vital signs through the gorgeous Smith gauges. Needless to say, the quality of the door panels and carpets are second to none.
The Bentley S2 was the result of further development of the S1. The biggest advantage it had over its predecessor was its aluminium 6.2-litre V8 engine. The engine produced 200 bhp transferred through a 4-speed automatic. The Bentley S2 also has the use of power steering, air-conditioning, electric windows and ride control, an improved heating system and many more minor improvements any car builder would incorporate with the introduction of each new model. Mechanically the car has been very well maintained. The engine bay is as clean as a whistle. The attention to detail is abundantly evident when you find a fully operational air filter retaining cable still in place. The engine and transmission are as smooth as silk. The car’s luxurious aura is splendidly enhanced by its sumptuous driving characteristics.
The documentation is also in order. The car comes with its original owner’s manual, a copy of the original build sheet confirming the car’s matching numbers and colour scheme. Our research revealed only seven Bentley S2’s were supplied matching this car’s colour specification. How many have survived is unknown, but finding another one in this supreme condition is going to prove a tad difficult!
