The Bentley Brooklands was introduced in 1992 as a replacement for the Bentley Mulsanne and Bentley Eight models. It was intended as a slightly cheaper alternative to the Bentley Turbo R featuring the same styling, underpinnings of the Rolls-Royce 6.75 litre, V8 engine but 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 grill 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.
Finished in Brooklands Green with parchment leather trim piped in green, this low mileage example is in excellent condition. The luxurious specification of such a marque makes this a car that offers exceptional value for money, given the cost when new. Supplied with a V5 registration document, current MoT test certificate and a service history, this Bentley Brooklands offers the new owner an opportunity for enjoyable, prestigious motoring at an affordable price.
