The second-generation model of the S1 Continental was the 1956 Bentley S1 Continental. Specific features of this vehicle included Bentley only providing the chassis and engine unit, while the customers had to choose from a wide variety of coachwork (from several talented coachbuilders). Some famous coachbuilders were Park Ward and H.J. Mulliner, who created beautiful one-of-a-kind coachwork for these luxury vehicles. It featured a slightly tuned 4.9L 6-inline engine and an automatic gearbox. For the braking system, it used drums on both the front and rear of the vehicle. This model also came with a shorter radiator and higher gearing capabilities. Also, for a time, it could have been special ordered to have a manual transmission.
