The Bentley Brooklands was introduced in 1992 as a replacement for the Bentley Mulsanne and Bentley Eight models. It was intended as a slightly cheaper alternative to the Bentley Turbo R featuring the same styling, and underpinnings of the Rolls-Royce 6.75 litre, V8 engine but without the more powerful model’s turbocharger.
The Brooklands continued Bentley’s design theme which was also used on contemporary Rolls-Royce vehicles throughout the 1980’s and early 1990’s. The exterior design featured the classic Bentley grill as well as dual headlights with wrap-around parking lights. As with many Bentley and Rolls-Royce vehicles, the Brooklands also featured the trademark descending boot lid and chrome B-pillars. The interior remained relatively unchanged from previous Bentley models but with a more curvaceous design element surrounding the leather-wrapped centre console. In autumn of 1996 Brooklands received an update in a form of light-pressure turbo, boosting power output to 300 bhp.
Finished in Wildberry Metallic with a contrasting Parchment Leather interior, this lovely late 1997 model Brooklands has completed a mere 27,000 miles from new, supported by a file of invoices and handbooks. Offered with a UK V5 document, 3 sets of keys, and tools, this is an excellent example of a class leading executive car of the 1990s.
