|The renaissance of the Bentley brand started with the Mulsanne of 1980. It was named after the famous straight at Le Mans - the scene of five classic Bentley victories in the vintage years. In 1992, the Mulsanne (and Bentley Eight) were replaced by the Brooklands that, continuing the motorsport theme, took its title from the awesome banked British circuit that also saw many a Bentley triumph prior to WWII. The newcomer was intended as a more affordable alternative to the mighty Turbo R, and featured basically the same overall styling, sporting underpinnings and well-proven 6.75-litre V8 engine; the obvious difference being that it was initially normally aspirated.|
The exterior featured Bentley's classic waterfall radiator grille, dual headlight and chromed 'B' pillars, while the interior cosseted its occupants with the expected level of leather, wood trim and deep pile wilton carpets. The model benefited from micro-computer technology controlling such functions as its air suspension, instrument displays and air-conditioning. The last series, from 1996 onwards, (which our car is), was enhanced by the fitting of a Garrett light-pressure turbocharger (LPT) in order to further improve performance. Some 1,380 Bentley Brooklands were produced by the time the model gave way to the Arnage in 1998.
The imposing Brooklands LPT we have on offer was manufactured and registered in 1997 and is finished in unblemished Peacock Blue metallic with a magnolia interior piped in blue with a blue dash top roll and Royal Blue carpets. She has been cossetted and has covered a very low mileage (the odometer currently reads just 16797 miles from new supported by a full service history and old MOT certificates).
She has been used regularly and therefore suffers from non of the problems which usually affect low mileage cars.
The Bentley is supplied fully serviced and with all of the correct and original Bentley accessories including a full car cover, battery conditioner/trickle charger and original wilton overmats piped in leather to match the carpets.
Inspections are actively encouraged and viewing would be my pleasure but please only by appointment near Witney in Oxfordshire. In my opinion this Bentley represents extraordinary value and will if looked after only appreciate in price.
