For Bentley and Rolls-Royce, the star of the 1959 London Motor Show was their first all-alloy V8 engine to be found in both the Bentley S2 and its cousin, the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II. The engine produced approximately 200bhp (Bentley and Rolls-Royce would never quote horsepower figures, preferring to state that it was ‘adequate’) and, by virtue of its alloy construction, weighed the same as the 4.8 litre, six cylinder engine it replaced. The result was a smoother, more powerful ride. The aluminium bodied ‘Continental’ Bentleys were produced by coachbuilder H.J. Mulliner.
