Description

"Intended as a slightly cheaper alternative to the Bentley Turbo R featuring the same styling, V8 engine and underpinnings of the Rolls-Royce 6.75 litrebut without the more powerful model's turbocharger. The Brooklands continued Bentley's design theme which was also used on contemporary Rolls-Royce vehicles throughout the 1980's and early 1990's. The exterior design featured the classic Bentley grille as well as dual headlights with wrap-around parking lights. As with many Bentley and Rolls-Royce vehicles, the Brooklands also featured the trademark descending boot lid and chrome B-pillars. The interior remained relatively unchanged from previous Bentley models but with a more curvaceous design element surrounding the leather-wrapped centre console.
This wonderful example presented in Wildberry over Parchment leather interior was purchased by the current vendor in 2016. Having only used the car occasionally during his tenure the car remains in very good order throughout. The paintwork still retains a deep shine and is in very good condition as is the interior which shows little sign of age. More recently the Bentley has been fitted with two new tyres and a new battery. Offered with a sizeable history file,the car comes to the market with various maintenance invoices including many old MoT test certificates, the original Bentley maintenance folder and toolkit. In good driving condition this Bentley Brooklands is ready to be enjoyed by a new custodian.
