Bentley Azure, 1997. LHD. Finished in Peacock Blue with Magnolia leather interior, Blue convertible hood.
Very nice woodwork and chrome.
This car is technically sound and runs and drives like new.
The single Garret turbo driven engine (385BHP and 750Nm at just 2,000rpm!) is a joy to start.
Combined with the very smooth transmission, it makes driving this car a true pleasure.
The perfectly lined body was designed by Italian Sergio Pininfarina and build by Mulliner & Park Ward.
The Azure shares its platform with the Continental R, but has an extensive reinforcement of the chassis
to make sure a design disrupting roll-bar was not needed. The thick powered convertible soft top was
totally produced at Pininfarina in Italy and mounted on the car at the Bentley Crewe factory.
The bigger and more sporty Azure succeeded the Bentley Continental DHC which was produced from 1984 till 1995
and was subsequently succeeded in 2006 by the second generation Azure. This time based on the Bentley Arnage platform.
Just 1403 of these first generation great convertibles were ever produced. This grand tourer seats easily 4 adults!
Ofcourse this particular Azure is fitted with all the luxury one could expect in 1997, like electrically
adjustable and heated memory seats, power windows, power hood, airconditioning, electrically adjustable
steeringcolumn, cruise control and much more.
