1960 Bentley S2

The Bentley S2 was produced from 1959 until 1962 and succeeded the S1. It was the first Bentley coming out with a V8 engine and power steering became part of the standard features. The S2 introduced a new dashboard as well as new design to the steering wheel. The horsepower went up to 178 which increased the top speed to 113 miles/hour (182km/u).

Our 1960 Bentley S2 is imported from England. We are only the second owners of this beautiful vehicle. The car previously belonged to Lord Henry Herbert, 7th Earl of Carnarvon (also known as Lord Porchester), who was a close friend and racing manager of Queen Elizabeth II. He often drove the Queen around the paddocks in this Bentley. With his retirement, the Queen congratulated him for his loyal years of service with a new Bentley. After his death in 2001, the family kept the Bentley S2 until they sold it to us in 2009. Due to the recreational use of the car it was kept in very good condition, having a low mileage.

We kept the Bentley in its original 2-toned colours of bronze and brown with a very fine maroon coloured detail recurring on the length of the car as well as the rims. The interior of the car is also authentic. The thick walnut panels make a beautiful contrast with the maroon colour of the seats, giving the car a vintage look. Before we imported the Bentley, the Rolls-Royce manufacturer installed an air-conditioning system which is ideal for our hot summer months. This meant that we had to sacrifice the extendible table in the middle of the front between the chauffeur and passenger.

1964 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III

This Rolls-Royce model was produced between 1962 until 1965. It succeeded the Silver Cloud II (similar to the S2) and was the last car to have a separate chassis frame and was the first to have four (twinned) headlamps. The grill was lowered and the headlamps, in pairs, where positioned at each side of the new grill. The 200 horse power engine was increased with 15-20 horsepower. These were the last cars built in that specific style.

Our 1964 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III was imported from Belgium in 2008. The car traveled in its own container, leaving the harbor of Antwerp, arriving in Cape Town 8 weeks later. This car is also kept in the authentic colours of navy blue and silver, giving the Rolls-Royce a truly classic look. The impeccable interior is grey and the walnut panels are immaculate. This Rolls-Royce is equipped with electric windows, passenger tables, vanity mirrors with lights, power steering and has a semi-automatic gear box.

Both the 1964 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III and 1960 Bentley S2 are equipped with V8 motors. However, they are exceptionally quiet. They came out with electric windows, power steering, passenger vanity mirror lights and are semi-automatic. The rare suspension system used by Bentley and Rolls-Royce insure one of the most comfortable rides you will ever experience. Both cars were very innovative, considering they are older than 50 years. These cars were built to give the chauffeur as well as its passengers a very luxurious experience.

Please note: both cars are strictly chauffeur driven due to their delicate and valuable nature.
