The car's braking system had a hybrid hydromechanical design that included hydraulic front brakes and mechanical rear brakes with a servo-mechanism borrowed from pre-war machines. In 1949, a Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith-like model called the Silver Dawn, which was based on the Bentley Mark VI chassis, was launched. In 1951, Rolls-Royce introduced the Silver Wraith version with an extended wheelbase, which was 3,378 mm. Until 1959, only 639 copies of this modification were released.

Also in 1951, the volume of the proposed engine increases to 4.6 liters. It is worth noting that the last car with a short wheelbase was assembled in 1953. In 1954, the working volume of the power unit once again increased and reached 4.9 liters. As for the transmission, only a 4-speed manual gearbox was originally offered, and since 1952, as an option, it was possible to equip the car with an automatic transmission that was assembled by the American company General Motors. In 1955, Bentley launched a copy of the Silver Wraith model, called the Bentley S1, into the production program.
