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, 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.
The Brooklands offered here, was first registered on the 7th of March 1996 and delivered by Harwoods of Sussex to a Mr J. Young of Haslemere. The accompanying Factory Build Sheet states that this Brooklands was ordered in Wildberry Mica paintwork with Sandstone Fine Lines and an interior finished in Sandstone hides with Wildberry piping and matching Wilton carpets. For the first four years the car was serviced by Harwoods after which P&A Wood were entrusted with maintaining the Bentley to the highest standards.
As one would expect from an owner who is a Concours Judge at the BDC and RREC, the car is, in his own words: 'virtually flawless'. The paintwork is still lustrous and blemish free, the Connolly leather interior is like new and all the woodwork is as it left the factory. The toolkit and spare wheel have never been used and all keys are present, including the wheel lock keys. Even the rear remote control for the radio is still in its pouch. The Service Booklet is fully stamped and there's a sheaf of invoices from Harwoods and P & A Wood together with MOT's dating back to April 2000, attesting to the lavish care that has been spent on this Bentley.
