The Bentley Brooklands was introduced in 1992 as a replacement for the Bentley Mulsanne S and Bentley Eight models. It was intended as a slightly cheaper alternative to the Bentley Turbo R, featuring the same styling, underpinnings and the Rolls-Royce 6.75-litre V8 engine, but without the more powerful model's turbocharger.
The Brooklands continued Bentley's relatively angular design theme, which was also used on contemporary Rolls-Royce vehicles, throughout the 1980s and early 1990s. The exterior design featured the classic Bentley waterfall grille as well as dual headlights with wraparound parking lights. As in many Bentley and Rolls-Royce vehicles, the Brooklands also featured the trademark descending bootlid and chrome B-pillars.
The interior remained relatively unchanged from previous Bentley models, with more curvaceous design elements surrounding the leather-wrapped center console. The steering wheel and interior door panels remained largely unchanged; the major change arrived in the form of relocating the gear selector to the center console - for decades the standard practice among R-R and Bentley models utilized a steering column mounted selector. The interior continued to be surrounded by ample woodgrain which featured engraved, lighter-colored outlines on the door panels.
The second Bentley Brooklands is a fixed-head version of the Bentley Azure (itself related to the Bentley Arnage), featuring a two-door, four-seater pillarless hardtop coupé body, eliminating the B-pillars. It was unveiled at the 2007 Geneva Auto Show, to be built for the 2008 model year.
As a hand-assembled car made in very small numbers, employing traditional coach-building techniques and craftsmanship skills in wood and leather, the Brooklands Coupé was the true successor to the discontinued Bentley Continental R and T. Planned lifetime production was limited at 550 cars, and deliveries started in the first half of 2008.
The Brooklands is powered by a 6.75-litre Bentley L Series twin-turbocharged OHV V8 engine producing 530 horsepower at 4,000 rpm and 774 lb⋅ft of torque at 3,250 rpm, at the time the highest torque ever developed by a production petrol V8 engine. The engine was linked to a reinforced 6-speed ZF torque converter automatic, with a Tiptronic manual gear selection function.
Performance on the Brooklands is astonishing:
0 to 60 MPH - 5.0 Sec
Top speed - 183.9 MPH
0 to 100 MPH - 11.7 Sec
This example is the cleanest, lowest miles, Brooklands on the market. With only 550 units ever built, there simply aren't many of these available.
Finished in Beluga Black exterior over Beluga Black interior with Black Piano Wood inlays, this is the ultimate in luxury and performance. Pristinely kept and serviced and complete with Books, Keys, both Umbrellas, and Factory Battery Tender.
