Replacing the Bentley Mulsanne and ‘Eight’ models came the Bentley Brooklands, a new and slightly more affordable option unveiled in 1998. Designed in classic Bentley fashion the full-size luxury saloon came equipped with the characteristic Bentley Grille, dual headlights and wrap-around parking lights along with an interior that remained much the same as previous models. Only the centre console was changed with a newly fitted gear selector. As with many Bentley models, the Brooklands also featured the trademark descending boot lid and chrome B-pillars and featured the classic 6.75 Litre V8 the Brooklands R was the minor to the turbocharged version however was an attractive proposition for many customers with upgraded suspension borrowed from the Turbo R and a light-pressure Turbo.
Well loved by the current owner, this wonderful modern Bentley was well specified from new with a Long Wheel Base chassis and extended leather interior to the headlining as well as seat coverings and door cards. More recently the Brooklands has been converted to run on LPG, offering a degree more practicality than other examples on the market, the electric seats have been overhauled and a new battery fitted. These Brooklands models offer exceptional value in the classic car market, and none more so than this well loved example.
