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 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.
This stunning Bentley Azure was delivered new in the U.S. and recently repatriated to the UK. The silver coachwork is virtually unmarked as is the stone grey interior; wood and leather are offered in abundance confirming this to be a car from one of the worlds' premium marques. Our test drive highlighted no faults with everything operating as it should. It is supplied with a NOVA certificate enabling the car to be registered in the UK should the new owner choose to. Whether you are going to the shops or travelling to the Côte d'Azur, this lefthand drive Bentley Azure is just about the perfect vehicle.
