In 1952 a new generation of high-speed Bentley is introduced with the name Continental. Their success was so great that production of the Continental continued on the next S 1 Continental, S 2 Continental and S 3 Continental models until 1965. The story of these iconic cars is widely described in the new book of Nubes Argentea ‘Continental Journeys’, written by Davide Bassoli.
