Powered by an identical light alloy 6.3-litre V8 engine to the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow, and endowed with similar bodywork, the Bentley T Series carries on a revered name and provides a sporting flavour for the Crewebuilt masterpiece. The unitary body /chassis features all-independent self-levelling suspension, the steering is servo-assisted, the windows and seats are electrically-operated, and the transmission is automatic. Detail improvements are constantly incorporated by the manufacturers, who still adhere to a policy of not disclosing power-output figures for Rolls or Bentley engines.
