1962 Bent­ley S2 Con­ti­nen­tal

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - BUYING & SELLING -

Ed­mundo Ros (real name Ed­mund Ross) was a Lon­don-based band­leader whose Co­conut Club, based in Lon­don’s Re­gent Street, tapped into a craze for Latin Amer­i­can mu­sic. When he wasn’t run­ning his venue or mak­ing mu­sic, he clearly had a so­phis­ti­cated taste in cars, be­ing the first owner of this James Young­bod­ied Bent­ley S2 Con­ti­nen­tal. By 1966 the car was with its fourth owner and it had shed its orig­i­nal ‘EWR 1’ reg­is­tra­tion num­ber, but over the years it has been well main­tained. Re­cent work in­cludes an £18,500 bare-metal re­spray in 2008 and a re­trim the fol­low­ing year, which cost £1750. A full ser­vice with a Bent­ley spe­cial­ist last year cost £2866. This is a smart, im­pos­ing and rare car.
