The Bentley S3 was a luxury car produced by Bentley from 1962 through 1965.

The S3 looked very similar to the S2. The most-visible difference was a new turn indicator light in the nose rather than on the side, along with a four-headlamp layout that paved the way for the radically new Bentley T1 in 1965. The S3 continued the 6.2 L (6230 cc/380 in³) V8 engine introduced with the S2.

Like previous models, an S3 Continental was built as well, many with coachbuilt bodies by H.J. Mulliner, Park Ward, and Vilhelm Koren.
