Production of the Bentley S1 Drophead Coupe began in 1955 and ceased in 1959. The Bentley S1 model was the first complete redesign of the company’s standard production car after World War II ended. The Bentley S series was introduced to be a roomier alternative to the R- type previously manufactured. The Bentley S1 Drophead Coupe was a luxury convertible vehicle, hence the use of Drophead in the model name. The Drophead Coupe had two doors, a folding roof, and a sloping rear and could seat up to four people comfortably. Because the head of the vehicle was a convertible, these cars were lighter weight and had better steering control. The suspension and breaking on these S1 Drophead Coupes was also much better than the previous R type models. The vehicle also featured a 4.9-liter straight six engine to achieve among the highest speeds for the time. These cars also came four-speed automatic gearbox standard.
