History
The Bentley S3 is a four-door luxury car produced by Bentley from late 1962 until 1965.
The S3 was very similar to the S2, with the most-visible exterior difference being a four-headlamp layout reflecting that introduced on the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III the same model year. The interior was modified with individual seats for front passengers and increased leg room in the rear. The 6. 2 L (6230 cc/ 380 in³) V8 engine continued with minor modifications. The power steering was also improved. The S3 was first announced and displayed at the Paris Motor Show October 1962

Twin paired headlamps. Stepped up wattage from 120 to 150 increasing forward visibility by at least 250 yards and giving a better spread on dipped beam
Radiator lowered 1½ inches allowing a lower bonnet line; restyled front mudguards with separate flashing indicators (formerly incorporated in the fog and spot lights); smaller over-riders on the bumpers front and rear.
Interior

Front passengers now sit behind a fascia brow padded for extra safety and they have individual split-bench seats; the rear seat is two inches further back with modified corners and shoulder padding. Operating lighter power steering
More powerful engine, Horse-power increased 7 percent by employing a higher compression ratio, 9:1 instead of 8:1 and larger carburettors to give higher performance - improved acceleration and a top speed of 115 mph with no loss of economy; for the American market an engine "breather" to reduce air pollution.

Fiennes Showroom are delighted to offer this very presentable Bentley S3 which has been cherished by the previous owner with photographic records showing VSU262 in all it's glory.
VSU262 was previously registered overseas and returned to the UK in 1991 and remained in the same hands until 2019.
Originally supplied in two tone green the S3 has undergone a complete colour change to Black which is how it presents today. Overall the interior and exterior is in good condition with general signs of age related patina.
The interior is finished in grey leather with green carpets confirming the original colour scheme.
Fitted with the usual refinements of electric windows, optional bench front seats, air conditioning, burr walnut wood capping's and facia in keeping with the overall appearance.
