The Bentley T-Series is an automobile which was produced by Bentley Motors Limited in the United Kingdom from 1965 to 1980. It was announced and displayed for the first time at the Paris Motor Show on 5 October 1965 as a Bentley-badged version of the totally redesigned chassis-less Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow. The T1 was manufactured from 1965 to 1977 and the T2 was made from 1977 to 1980. The Bentley was differentiated from its Rolls Royce sibling by its simpler and lighter front grille. The Bentley, being technically an identical twin of the Rolls-Royce, seems to have been bought mostly by owners wishing a little more understatement. Here is a very lovely 1973 T1 model, presented in a fetching colour combination.  With an indicated 76,400 miles only, it has always been well-maintained and lead a cherished life.
