Unveiled at the 2007 Geneva Auto Show, and built between 2008 - 2010, Bentley launched the second version of the 'Brooklands' as a high-performance coupé limited to just 550 cars worldwide, with the majority of these supplied to the USA, the Middle and the Far East. The model was a fixed-head version of the popular Azure and featured a two-door, four-seat pillarless coupé body. Continuing Bentley's long-standing tradition, the model employed their renowned coach-building techniques and craftsmanship skills, particularly in the cabin. Power came from a 6.75-litre twin-turbocharged, V8 engine capable of producing 530 bhp, making this not only a beautiful car, but one with performance to match. Just 50 cars were supplied through the UK Bentley network and this car was one of just two supplied new by Bentley Birmingham for a cost of £275,000 at the time.

This particular Bentley Brooklands was first registered on 25th September 2008 finished in classic Moonbeam Silver with quilted Cotswold Cream leather piped in French Navy Blue. The car was specifically ordered with options including Burr Oak Veneers, Ultrasonic parking with reverse camera, Satellite navigation, and 20-inch wheels.

Acquired by Silverstone Auctions Managing Director, Nick Whale, several years ago, the car has been very well maintained and lightly used as part of his private collection. It's supplied with both sets of keys, all the original handbooks, three umbrellas-no less, an extensive main dealer history, and a recent set of new tyres. This car represents a rare opportunity to own a limited production model which was showing just 23,881 miles on the odometer at the time of cataloguing. This distinctive and luxurious Bentley Brooklands Coupé is in fine condition and is ready to give someone else that special Bentley 'sense of occasion' and pleasure of ownership and, as one of the last "real" Bentleys ever made, is a potential investment opportunity.
