You will love this Bentley for its refined, laid back nature and raw power, while your passengers will enjoy a standard of ride quality that few cars of the era can match.
Essentially a re-badged Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow, the T1 differs from the Roller only in its slightly different grille and a few Bentley emblems. Inside, it’s pure prestige, with the finest of leather seats, wonderfully thick carpets and more standard equipment than just about anything of a similar era. The simple styling renders this Bentley rather subtle in appearance, but its sheer size gives it an almost regal road presence.
T1s and Silver Shadows enjoyed a lengthy production run, so there are plenty of them around. Buy a cared-for example, and you’ll enjoy prestige classic motoring at its finest – for a fraction of what you’d pay for a modern Bentley.

Drives smooth and feels like a proper Bentley should.
Few cars rival the T1 for luxury at this price other than its Rolls-Royce stablemates. But don’t be tempted by cars with rock-bottom price tags. The allure of a cheap Bentley may be strong, but it isn’t worth it unless you have double the budget for parts and you’re a dab hand with electrics, hydraulics, and bodywork.
It’s been said before, but there really is no substitute when it comes to shopping around and paying more for a good car as in our opinion cars with paper trail and evidence of due care and attention are worth the extra money, as it’s so easy to plough tens of thousands of dollars into a rough one. Paying a specialist a nominal fee for an inspection and getting involved with the club scene before you buy will pay dividends, too. Do it by the book and you’ll bag one of the best British prestige cars money can buy.
