Bentley Brooklands is a full-sized luxury car from Bentley Motors Limited, released in the year 1992 to replace Bentley Eight and Bentley Mulsanne models. It was made especially as a cheaper alternative to the Bentley Turbo R, which had the same style, the Rolls Royce 6.75 liter engine and the underpinnings, but came without the turbocharger of a more powerful model.
In the year 1998, Bentley Arnage replaced The Brooklands. At the Geneva Auto Show, in the year 2007, Bentley revived the nameplate of Brooklands for a Coupe with four seats, two doors to be built for the model year 2008. The Brooklands was continued with the relatively angular design theme of Bentley, which was also used on the contemporary vehicles of Rolls Royce throughout the 1980’s and the early times of 1990’s. The exterior design has the classic Bentley waterfall grille and also the dual headlights along with wrap around parking lights. As in many Rolls Royce and Bentley vehicles the Brooklands also has the Chrome B-pillars and trademark descending bootlid.
There is no change in the interior from the previous models of Bentley with more curvy design components surrounding the center console, which has a leather wrapping. The interior door panels and the steering wheel did not change. The interior is continued to be surrounded by the sufficient woodgrain, which has etched the lighter colored outlines, which are on the door panels. The starting price of the Brooklands in United States is $156,500.
Brooklands of the period 1992-1997 was driven by an engine with the specifications of 6.75 liter V8 with an automatic transmission with 4 speeds. It is a rear wheel drive vehicle and has an independent rear and front suspension. While the Brooklands is not large compared to other Ultra-luxury cars, it remained large in size with a length of 211.4 inches and has a wheelbase of 124.5 inches.
The Coupe of Bentley Brooklands will be assembled by manpower, employing techniques of traditional coach building and the craftsman skills in leather hide and wood veneer. The plan is that the lifetime production is only 550 cars and the deliveries were expected to start in the first half of the year 2008. The Brooklands is employed with a twin turbocharged 6 3/4 liter V8 engine, which produces 530 bhp and a torque of 1,050 N-m, which is the highest torque that could never be developed by a production V8 engine.
