The Bentley Azure was launched in 1995 and based on the platform of the Continental R coupé which had been launched in 1991. The Azure often surprised with its size and bulk, intended to both convey a sense of presence and allow for comfortable seating of four adult passengers. Power came from the company's stalwart 6.75 litre V8, featuring a single intercooled turbocharger producing in the region of 380bhp. The gearbox was a General Motors sourced four-speed automatic unit with the Azure capable of 0 to 60mph in an impressive 6.1 seconds. Owing to the limited space at Bentley's Crewe factory, the Azure was designed and manufactured by Pininfarina, significantly adding to the vehicle's production cost. From 1999, the Azure was also available in 'Mulliner Trim' which added special bespoke trim and additional equipment, thus allowing the buyer the option for further customisation during the build process. Pricing varied as equipment could be significantly different from one to the next depending on personal preferences.

Impressively, this Bentley Azure has only had one owner from new. This is a convertible which has clearly been lovingly looked after, and confirmed by the service history and virtually unmarked condition. To be expected, this Azure drives in a superb manner, shows no sign of any wear and is ready to be enjoyed immediately. Finished in Wildberry with cream hide and contrasting seat piping, this Bentley is supplied with a V5 registration document, current MoT test certificate and service documents. Incredible value for money given the estimate.

Interested parties should satisfy themselves as to the description and condition of each lot prior to the sale. Buyers are advised to inspect the car in person or use a professional to carry out this service.
