Bentley Azure

Email   small font medium font large font

The luxurious four-seater Bentley Azure is the latest in a portofolio of wanderfully desirable 'dropheads' stretching back many decades and reaffirms Bentley's reputation as creator of the word's most elegant convertibles.

Bentley revealed the production version of the new Azure at the IAA Motor Show in Frankfurt on September 2005 and the first customer car will be delivered in Spring 2006. Like its iconic predecessor, which was in production from 1995 to 2002, the new Azure becomes the floagship of the Bentley model range.

In true Bentley fashion, it blends the most traditional of craftsmanship with the most modern of engineering to deliver a car which is much more than it seems. The Bentley Azure shares its face and driveline with the Arnage, and seats four adults in an opulent cabin beneath a fabric folding roof that can be lowered in 30 seconds.

Its double-wishbone suspension and general body structure are adopted from the Arnage, along with its twin-turbocharged V8 engine which develops 336 kW of power and a massive 875 Nm of torque. In addition, the chrome trimmed bumpers and sills of the show car are now painted in body colour with a delicate chrome trim that runs the length of the car, enhancing the flowing lines of the Azure body.
