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 coup� 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 Coup� 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
