Every Cloud has a Silver Lining by Davide Bassoli // Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud and Bentley S-Series
Timed perfectly well in conjunction with the 60th Anniversary of the launch of Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud and Bentley S-Series in 1955 this magnificent book by Davide Bassoli has been published. Many do share the opinion these model-series to be quintessential ‚Rolls-Royce’. They have been elevated to the status of icons of automotive history.
With immense in-depth research Davide Bassoli succeeded in finding for his book an illustration for each and any coachbuilt-variant that ever had originally been erected on chassis of Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud I, II and III. He has been successful, too, in achieving such self-imposed task as regards Bentley from series S1, S2 und S3 (with but one exception). The same pain-staking work had been invested to provide correct details of the history of these models; a considerable amount of new material has been un-earthed such. His lists of technical specifications are fault-free and comprehensive. That can be stated, too, as regards the additional information he added in several appendixes
This truly is „The definitve history of the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud and the Bentley S Series including Coachbuilt and Continental versions” – and it is presented in the form of a lavishly equipped book that does enhance any motor-library.
