Bentley Cars

Bentley Azure


The Bentley Azure was first launched in 1995 and originally was based on the continental R which continued production until a revised model based on the Arnage platform was launched in 2006.

Bentley’s first generation Azure was powered by a 6.75 litre V8 single Turbo charged engine which was replaced with the arrival of the 2006 facelift model with a twin turbo charged V8 as seen in a number of the current Bentley models. With a top speed of around 168 mph and a 0 to 60 time of 5.6 second the Bentley Azure is a awesome open top 2 door grand tourer.

The powered roof on this Bentley convertible is a joy, sale get caught out in the rain is not a problem as all you need to do is slowdown to less than 20 mph and in under 26 second the roof will lock itself into place and your passengers would be none the wiser that you left home in a drop head.

The Azure interior can be customised by the customer from a range of different woods and leathers so it is possible to configure a unique car however the favourite combination remains as light leather and dark walnut wood.

As Bentleys flagship convertible the Azure has a hefty price tag of £240,000 plus extras so the fact that you will get as little as 15mpg and the tag of least fuel efficient car in range will probably not deter you from part with your ¼ of a million pounds.
