The world knows the Bentley brand is synonymous with the pinnacle of luxury, and while the Continental line-up has brought the cost of ownership within closer reach of the privileged, the Brooklands is for true aristocracy. The new Bentley Brooklands has the most powerful V8 the company has ever produced, a 530 horsepower, twin-turbocharged 6.75-liter unit that also produces 775 pound-feet of torque. The V8 engine is mated to a six-speed transmission driving the rear wheels in the classic fashion.
Much like a custom tailored Paul Smith suit, the interior is entirely finished in a choice of 27 shades and types of leather, while the electronically adjustable seats offer a comfortable fit for each of its four occupants. The ride is truly that of a Bentley and the finish, inside and out, is impeccable. There is nothing lacking from this super car.
The “Bentley Boys” of the 1920s inspired this true Super Coupe. With only 550 cars to be manufactured, the Bentley Brooklands is going to be a collector’s fixation and an owner’s showpiece.
