Supplied new directly from  Rolls-Royce Limited Motor Car Division, with the original order being taken 16th August 1962 – copy on file. Dispatched two years later by H.J.Mulliner Park Ward London Coachworks on 1st January 1964 to Mr K F Craggs ESQ. Specially ordered with flared arches and chrome side mouldings which emphasise the iconic wing line of this body design by Vilhelm Koren. This particular example benefitted with a host of non standard personal options tailor made for the original owner: Adjustable single head rest to nearside seat at the personal request of Mrs Craggs, Fulgar four note / three trumpet Champs-Elysees Air Horns, Monograms to front doors, Irvin diagonal shoulder and lap belts to front seats, Sun visors trimmed in matching hide, with vanity mirror delete, longer front seat runners, Irvin safety belts to rear seats, electric windows, H15060 / T radio with Hirschmann electric aerial – settling the car up for European adventures.

Fast forward to 1991, the car was acquired by its next long term London owner who, during his 23 years of ownership, lavished just over £100,000 of works upon #BC124XC 9 (invoices on file). The body was stripped back to bare metal and extensive restoration works carried out to the coachwork by highly respected marque specialist English Automotive. During this ownership the vehicle benefitted with a host of wonderful additions to aid and improve the car for long distance touring motoring which included the fitment of a Harvey Bailey handling kit, Inertia seat belts trimmed in Cassis webbing to match the Cardinal Red cockpit, enlarged radiator with a discreetly added extra cooling fan, refrigerated-air, electronic ignition for improved running and modern Pioneer radio with bluetooth connectivity, discreetly concealed in the glove box to keep the original dashboard period look.

Having passed into the ownership of its last lucky custodian in 2014 the total ownership rose to just 5 owners from from new. Upon the recent acquisition by DD Classics, the car underwent a 400 mile drive home where it behaved faultlessly. We can report that it is one of the best driving S3’s we have ever experienced with history to match.

Finished today in its original special order colour combination of Titanite Silver Grey metallic coachwork with Cardinal Red Connolly hide and matching leather-bound Wilton weaved carpets, This is a wonderful opportunity to acquire a factory RHD Bentley Continental SIII Fixed Head Coupe in exceptional order throughout.
