Following on from the S1 Continental the S2 now had different brakes (4 shoes) and a changed axle ratio, power came from the all new Rolls-Royce/Bentley 6230cc V8, to be found in the Silver Cloud 2, S2 Saloon and R-R Phantom V.
Body work was still supplied from the usual British Coachbuilders in various styles. A new style to be found was the single headlamp,
Fixed Head Coupe and Drop Head Coupe design by Park Ward. This particular design had a straight thru wing line, a first for Rolls-Royce and Bentley. H.J. Mulliner tended to clothe the S2 with more traditional designs, including the 6 light, "Flying Spur" saloon.
