The Bentley Brooklands Coupé is a coupé version of the Bentley Arnage. As a hand-assembled car made in very small numbers, employing traditional coachbuilding techniques and craftsmanship skills in wood and leather, the Brooklands Coupé is the true successor to the discontinued Bentley Continental R and T. Lifetime production is planned for 550 cars, and deliveries started in the first half of 2008. The Brooklands is powered by a 6.75-litre Rolls-Royce twin-turbocharged V8 engine, producing 530 horsepower and 774 lbft, the highest torque ever developed by a production V8 petrol engine. It was featured on Top Gear in series 11 by Jeremy Clarkson. It can achieve 0 to 60 miles per hour in around 5.0 seconds, and a top speed in the region of 183 mph. With an optional Carbon fibre-reinforced Silicon Carbide (C/SiC) ceramic composite braking system with 14-inch SGL Carbon brake discs (only fitted with 20-inch wheels), the new Brooklands offers more stopping power than any other passenger vehicle currently available for purchase.
Originally registered on 1st July 2008, this Bentley Brooklands is in as new condition having been owned by a fastidious and enthusiastic collector. Finished in Dark Sapphire Blue and complemented by a contrasting Magnolia interior, the interior of these superb cars is an area of beauty, with great ergonomics, leather trim in abundance and burr walnut wood in plentiful supply. This example was last serviced by Jack Barclay on 30th August 2019 at 19,960 miles, new front and rear discs and pads were fitted at the same time, the total invoice cost was £6,395. To be expected this car is faultless in every aspect. Supplied with a V5C registration document, a full years MoT test certificate and a collection of service invoices, to ride in a Bentley Brooklands is memorable experience, to drive one takes it to a different level.
