The S1 comes from a time when Bentley was owned by Rolls-Royce, and Bentleys were essentially just rebadged Rolls models. The S1 was the same car as the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud, with the only differences being the grille and the badges. So, those buying a standard S1 weren’t just getting a car that looked like every other S1, it also looked like every other Silver Cloud. It has a bit of an art deco look to it, which would have been old fashioned by the time this car was built in 1959, but at the time, trendiness was much more important for things like sports cars than for luxury cars. This is also a long-wheelbase version of the S1 — one of only 35 examples of the configuration. Of those 35, only 12 had coachbuilt bodies, and of those 12, just two were left-hand-drive. That means you won’t see many other S1s that look like this one.
