T2 appeared on the market as a 1970’s Bentley mass production model but you may find it’s rather rare.
Bentley T and the twin sister Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow were announced in 1965 September, which is known to have had the most drastic change in the Rolls-Royce Motors history. The car had many “firsts” in the Rolls-Royce history, such as monocoque construction, Citroen patented hydropneumatic hight control independent suspension, hydropneumatic four wheel disk brake. Perhaps because of the many drastic changes, the car had received continuous improvements right after its debut.
The biggest change came in 1975 to be called series 2 model which is Bentley T2/ Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II, most noticeably the U.S.A. spec shock-absorbing bumper became the standard worldwide. The power unit, V8 OHV 6,747cc engine was carried on but with the adoption of twin exhaust pipe gave a bit more power output and torque (both of which was undisclosed as a Rolls-Royce car tradition). And the steering was rack & pinion was introduced instead of the ball recirculation on the series 1 car. With the standardized radial tire, It was said the handling and straight-running stability was much improved.
In the T and T2 era, however, Bentley marquee was overshadowed by Rolls-Royce. Bentley sales against Rolls-Royce was fallen down to 1:9, a total of only 558 cars were lined off from Crew factory in its production years from 1975 to 1980, which resulting now to be a sort after car among Bentley collectors.
This 1978 car is in the top condition as a used T2. Mechanically fine throughout. With a little preparation, it will be ready to drive for your daily use as well as to be in your Bentley collections.
