The 1961 Continental Park Ward DHC with its ground breaking design by the Norwegian designer Vilhelm Koren is one of Bentleys most outstanding post war design. Popular with film stars such as Yul Brynner and royalty such as King Hassan II of Morocco, the car proved popular with a number of well situated connoisseurs around the world. The example on offer is one of only 63 left hand drive cars built. It was delivered to the garage de l’Athénée in Geneva in March 1961, and in April of the same year sold to Hans Grether, then CEO off Doetsch-Grether (Fenjal). Copies of the chassis card show that the Continental was built to Swiss specifications and delivered in shell grey, with a grey soft top and a red leather interior. In the same chassis card, as well as the Bentley Continental registry, only one further owner, Walter F. Bugmann is listed, and the car was last registered in his company’s name. Obviously the S2 received restoration work many years ago and at the same time was equipped with a black soft top, but unfortunately there is no further documentation available. The beautiful Cabriolet is in good overall condition and for the most recent Veteran MOT in November 22 enjoyed a cosmetic refreshing
