It could’ve certainly been an expensive mistake for both NSW police detective and Australian Border Force officers to tear apart a 1960 Bentley S2 for no good reason, but thankfully, the only parties it’ll cost are the three men charged with smuggling an eye-watering amount of cocaine and methylamphetamine (in more ways than one).

The vintage car, which arrived at Port Botany in a shipping container by way of Canada earlier this month, was found to be carrying a little more than just a sweet ride after a routine x-ray scan. Upon dismantling the vehicle, authorities discovered approximately 161 kilograms of meth and 30 kilograms of coke concealed behind the headlights.

Naturally, this triggered an investigation surrounding the importation of the glassy snow chariot. According to The Sydney Morning Herald, detectives executed a search warrant at Rooty Hill this week, arresting two men – aged 20 and 23 – who were subsequently charged with “various drug offences.”

Additionally, a third man – aged 25 – who had some level of involvement was arrested in Ballina following a vehicle stop wherein offers seized another 2.2 kilograms of meth and over $1.1 million in cash. The trio were refused bail and are set to face court later today.

It’s unclear what will happen to the 1960 Bentley S2 now that it’s been completely rid of cocaine and methylamphetamine. Perhaps we’ll be seeing a different kind of patrol car roaming around the state in due course, similar to the boys in blue over in the Czech Republic.
