Bentley 1978

Series T2 (V8 cyl, 6750 cc)
Corniche (V8 cyl, 6750 cc)

Great Britain

Saloon: £ 26,740
Built by Rolls-Royce, the Bentley T2 is the parallel of the Silver Shadow II saloon, but with that magnificent radiator which recalls innumerable race victories of bygone days. Like the Shadow II and other Rolls products, the Bentley has automatic two-level air-conditioning, 'Cruise-Control' for maintaining pace with driver's foot off the accelerator, on motorways and long highways, and polished walnut abounds in the sumptuous interior. The four-door T2 has self-levelling suspension, and the 6.7-litre light-alloy V8 engine enables it to cruise fast in uricanny silence. There is an air-dam under the front bumper for high-speed stability.
