The Brooklands Coupe of 2008 was from a family of Grand Tourers that only Bentley could produce. Incredible handmade craftsmanship and married to the current most powerful engine in the range with 530bhp.This wasn’t just a fixed head Azure or a Continental R, this was the ultimate GT with interior dimensions completely altered to accommodate 4 people in stunning luxury.
Bentley Introduced their new Coupe at the Geneva Motor Show in 2007.
Launched as a Limited Edition model, Limited to 550 models worldwide. The first models became public in 2008.
Although it was a branded as a Limited Edition of 550, that was, like so many Bentley Limited Editions the maximum amount that they would build. The actual number built from my research is;
TOTAL CARS: 426 Worldwide Cars. (Not including Prototype cars – 432 total)
TOTAL RHD CARS: 105. EXPORT RHD CARS 8
TOTAL UK CARS: 97.
For the UK I have every VIN number and steadily gathering every colour they were finished in. I have 64 UK cars registered with colours and specs… just need to search, sort and organise the others…
The Rare ones are those on a ’10 plate, Only 6 of those were registered. And the rarest is the ‘final’ five which were a Special Commission by Jack Barclay, these include the mentioned ’10 plate.
There’s more to follow on the Brooklands soon… contact me if you know any…
