1994 Bentley Brooklands **two Owners, Meticulously Maintained, Must See** on 2040-cars
Ankeny, Iowa, United States
1994 BENTLEY BROOKLANDS
am the second owner. Original owner traded in on a new vehicle
purchase in February of this year. Vehicle has always passed emissions and safety
testing in NY. I called the dealership where the car was sold new
and serviced for 20 years and they said it was always maintained
extremely well and owner never skimped on needed repairs
is in fantastic condition overall, hard to believe it's 20 years old.
Vehicle drives as well as it looks. The 6.75L engine is very smooth,
the A/C is colder than you would desire, the burl and walnut wood is in excellent condition, there is no damage history,
all paint appears to be original, the painted pinstripe is even in
perfect condition. The Yokohama tires look new and I have two keys
for the wheels, as well as, three ignition keys. Owner's manuals are
included as well. I replaced the rear spheres approx. 300 miles ago
two modifications have been made. DVD/VCR players with screens in
the head rests and the headlight bezels are painted to match the car.
The car is racing green so it's hard to tell in the pics, but I
always have them painted to match the color because it makes these
cars look much newer
few imperfections I can find are the following: There is a very
small rust spot developing on the right bottom corner of the rear
window, there are some scratches in several of the openings of the
wheels due to cleaning with an improper material (very hard to
notice), there is light wear on the drivers seat, the seat memory
does not appear to work (they never do for some reason), and the
front passenger window regulator needs replaced. I have over 100 pics available. Contact me for the link
is a lien on the car and Iowa is an electronic title state which
means the title will be printed and mailed to my upon lien being paid
off. That process takes approx. 3 days. I received a photo copy of the title and would be happy to forward it, along with my registration to buyer. In addition, I will overnight title to
buyer same day it is received
515.783.7077 with any questions or offers. I would be happy to pick
the buyer up at the airport, or assist in arranging transport, I have
a fantastic transport broker

Five years ago, when Bentley was preparing its farewell shindig for the Arnage, reports were that the Arnage's coupe and convertible siblings, the Brooklands and Azure, would get replacements on the Mulsanne platform. Obviously, that hasn't happened, although we were teased with the Mulsanne Vision Concept in 2012. Then, just this summer, we were again teased with rumors of a Brooklands and Azure one-two punch. While it still hasn't happened yet, Bentley's unveiling of the Grand Convertible seems to have put things in gear.

Not 'merely' a roofless Mulsanne, the Grand Convertible appears to be a droptop Mulsanne Speed, powered by a 6.75-liter engine with 530 horsepower and 811 pound-feet of torque, and fitted with the directional wheels only available on the Mulsanne Speed. Finished outside in Sequin Blue with a "liquid metal" hood and windshield frame and a burl walnut veneer on the tonneau cover - a similar combo used to introduce the Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé eight years ago - the cabin is covered in Beluga leather with blue cross-stitching.
Company CEO Wolfgang Dürheimer says Bentley is watching customer reaction to the car, yet the press release says it's been "Developed to signify Bentley's intentions for the future." That sounds like better than even odds we'll be seeing this on the roads. For now, though, you can see it in the high-res gallery above, at the LA Auto Show starting this week, and at Art Basel in Miami after that, and you'll find a bit more info on it in the press release below.
A factory-entered Bentley hadn't won a top tier race in the UK for 84 years when the Continental GT3 recently took victory in the second round of the Blancpain Endurance Series at Silverstone. It was an early success for a racer that only hit the track competitively for the first time late last year at the Gulf 12 Hours in Abu Dhabi. To capitalize on the potent platform, Bentley is bringing it to the street with the limited-edition Continental GT3-R.

Limited to just 300 units worldwide, this bruiser starts as any other Continental GT on the assembly line in Crewe, England, but then Bentley Motorsport get ahold of it to painstakingly improve its performance. Like the racer, GT3-R uses the 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V8, and here, power is cranked up to 572 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque, 51 hp and 14 lb-ft better than the GT V8 S. The muscle is routed through an eight-speed automatic gearbox from ZF with shortened gearing and a rear-biased all-wheel-drive system with torque vectoring for the rear wheels. The weight also comes down over 200 pounds from the V8 S to 4,839 pounds. Bentley claims all the tweaks are enough to hustle the GT3-R to 60 miles per hour in 3.6 seconds, on to an estimated top speed of 170 mph.
To handle all that power, an air suspension holds up all four corners, and the brakes use carbon silicon carbide discs for plentiful stopping power. A titanium exhaust saves an additional 15 pounds of weight, and Bentley promises that it gives the car a baritone growl.
The 200 MPH Club was once populated entirely by exotic sports cars. These days it has expanded to include convertibles, sedans and even station wagons. But an SUV? Unthinkable, what with their aerodynamic profile approaching that of a barn door. Bentley, however, is out to change that with its forthcoming new sport ute.
Not only is the British automaker aiming to make its first SUV fully capable off road, it's also engineering it to be one of the fastest on the road as well. According to emerging reports coming in from the UK, Bentley is streamlining the SUV's shape with a lower roofline and reprofiled rear end and fitting it with advanced underbody aerodynamic aids in order to compensate for its over-six-foot width and get it up to the magic 200-mph mark.
Reaching out to Bentley for comment, its communications office wouldn't divulge such performance targets: "The SUV is in the engineering development stage, so unfortunately it's too soon to discuss performance figures," we were told via email. "It will of course have all the power and performance that one would expect from a Bentley!" If the information proves correct, however, at that speed, it would be able to keep pace with the faster members of the Continental family, but leave the Mulsanne flagship sedan (which is already approaching the size of an SUV) and its 185-mph top speed in the dust - not to mention the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S that is quoted at "only" 175 mph.
