The Bentley T2 introduced split-level air-conditioning and improved steering (rack and pinion) which helped considerably to improve the cars cornering abilities. Engine size had already grown to 6750cc on later T1s, no changes were made for the T2 which was basically a badge engineered Silver Shadow 2.
Changes to the body included a front airdam and large, one piece bumpers front and rear to meet US safety requirements. The sumptuous interior now had a restyled dashboard and rear head restraints. The T2 was replaced by the Mulsane in 1980, a total of just 558 standard cars were produced along with 10 Long Wheelbase cars.
