The Bentley S2 and Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II were launched in 1959, replacing the previous generation’s 4.9-liter straight-six engine with a more powerful and refined all-new L-Series V-8 engine.
The Bentley S2 was highly successful, with 1,863 produced, but only 15 of those were fitted with the expensive Drophead Coupé coachwork of H.J. Mulliner & Co. This particular model, chassis B75LBR, was the first of seven left-hand-drive versions.
