Characteristics and peculiarities

Backgrounds of this model
- The Bentley Brooklands is a 2-door coupé that is part of the Arnage model range, just like the Bentley Azure (T). The model has no predecessor or successor but is a limited edition besides the Bentley Continental GT model range. In advance the production was limited to 550 cars, but finally that number wasn't sold.
- The Brooklands is a homage to the Bentley Boys who were victorious on the famous Brooklands circuit.

General characteristics
- The maximum power is 395 kW (537 hp) at 4.000 rpm and the torque is 1.050 Nm at 3.250 rpm. The 6 ¾-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine is connected to a ZF six-speed automatic gear box.
- 'Le Mans' front wing vents.
- Brushed aluminium 'Bentley Brooklands' treadplates.
- A dark-tinted steel Bentley matrix grille.
- Optional Flying 'B' retractable radiator mascot.
- The fitment as standard of 8.5Jx20-inch wheels and 255/40 ZR20 Pirelli P Zero tyres. The 20-inch alloy wheels are available in two distinctive styles. The 16-spoke two-piece disc wheels are standard fitment, the 5-spoke two-piece Sports wheels are an option.
- A jewelled fuel filler cap.
- Larger diameter exhaust tailpipe finishers with rifled detailing to the inside surface.
- Unique underbonnet detailing with a brushed aluminium '6 ¾ Litre Brooklands' engine plaque and embossed Bentley logos on the intercoolers.
- The cabin headlining is made entirely from leather, tightened and finished by hand.
- The individual, electronically reclining rear seats are set 100mm (4 inches) further back than on the Azure, benefiting leg room. They are also set 25mm lower than the Arnage, resulting in a headroom of 939mm – just 24mm less than in the Arnage.
- The new Azure’s front seats with integrated seat belts and side airbags.
- Bi-level electric lumbar adjustment, a massage function, and tilting and extending front cushions.
- An extensive choice of 'standard fit' colours which includes 42 exterior paints (including new Venusian Grey and Titan Grey), 25 hides (including three new hide colours Anthracite grey, Newmarket Tan and Cashew) and three veneers (including new Dark Stained Vavona).
- Distinctive new 'Sandwich' piping which sits flush with the stitching.
- A range of optional engine-turned aluminium and carbon fibre veneer inserts complement the Mulliner aluminium foot pedals and footrest.
