THE BENTLEY BROOKLANDS

By the end of the 1980s, Rolls-Royce's re-branding of Bentley - begun in 1982 with the launch of the Mulsanne Turbo - had proved an outstanding success. However, the sales graph that had climbed steadily upwards throughout the decade, reaching its peak in 1989, would plunge dramatically within just a couple of years because of economic recession. Rolls-Royce responded by rationalizing the Bentley range, dropping the normally-aspirated Mulsanne and Eight saloons and introducing the evocatively named Brooklands, the latter being in effect a Turbo R minus turbocharger but retaining the R's sports tuned suspension and adaptive shock absorber control. Introduced for the 1993 model year, the Brooklands was available in standard and long-wheelbase variants at a base price of $156,500. In August 1993, the Rolls-Royce/Bentley range was updated to 'Series III' specification, the principal benefit of which was a thoroughly reworked V8 engine producing 20% more power than before. On the road, this meant improved acceleration and a top speed, for the normally aspirated models. Another important development was the introduction of driver's and passenger's airbags. In total, 1,722 Bentley Brooklands of all types were made, all hand built using the high level of craftsmanship expected by a Bentley motorcar.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Presented in exceptional condition, this fine Bentley Brooklands had covered a mere 46,207 miles from new at the time of cataloging, and remains in largely original condition throughout. The original window sticker notes that the car was finished at the Crewe works just as it appears today; with the exterior in Red Pearl, and the interior neatly trimmed in Parchment leather with a St. James Red pinstripe. Previously owned by a RROC member, the Bentley has been serviced and cared for, and must be one of the best kept examples available anywhere. A timeless and luxurious motorcar, perfectly expressing Bentley's sporting heritage.
