Bentley Brooklands 2009 – SPRZEDANY

Bentley Brooklands odwołuje się do najlepszych czasów marki i pięknych wzorców dwudrzwiowych coupe, jak R-Type Continental z lat 50-tych. Ten flagowy okręt Bentleya wymagał, tak jak i inne twory marki, dokładnie 650 godzin ręcznego składania. Wyposażony w najmocniejszą w historii marki jednostkę napędową, dysponował mocą 530 KM. V8 o pojemności 6,75 litra, pomimo 2,5 tony masy Bentleya, było w stanie rozpędzić go do 100 km/h w około 5 sekund. Choć Bentley planował zbudować 550 egzemplarzy samochodu, powstało ich zaledwie 426. Okaz wystawiony na aukcji trafił do pierwszego właściciela w Seattle pod koniec 2008 roku. Pięknie skonfigurowany w eleganckiej czerni z jasnobrązowym wnętrzem, doskonale nadaje się na długie dystanse. Ten statek wygodny nawet dla czterech osób dorosłych i ich bagażu, nadaje się wręcz do podróży transkontynentalnej 😉 Regularnie serwisowany Bentley, z zaledwie 1612 milami na liczniku, w 2016 roku został sprzedany obecnemu właścicielowi i sprowadzony do Szwajcarii, gdzie pozostaje do tej pory. Po świeżej zmianie oleju, gotowy do drogi, wraz z szeregiem dokumentów posiada również dwa parasole Bentleya zamontowane na bagażniku. Uważany przez wielu za najbardziej kolekcjonerski egzemplarz Bentleya wyprodukowany w XXI wieku, Brooklands wylicytowany został za 138 tysięcy funtów szterlingów, czyli około 680 tysięcy złotych.

⯒ TEMPORARY IMPORT

To many, the most desirable and celebrated Bentleys have always been the marque’s elegant, hand-built, two-door coupes, such as the R-Type Continental of the 1950s. Following in that car’s footsteps was the Brooklands, which was first introduced to the public at the 2007 Geneva Motor Show. Requiring some 650 man-hours to build, this was to be Bentley’s flagship model and one that hearkened back to the marque’s glory days.

At the time, it boasted the most powerful V-8 engine ever fitted to a Bentley. The Brooklands’ 6.75-litre, twin-turbo powerplant produced 530 bhp at 4,000 rpm, making for a 0–60 mph time of 5.0 seconds, exceptionally fast when considering it tipped the scales at 2,650 kg! Bentley initially planned for 550 examples to be built; however, only 426 were built by the time production ended.

Purchased new by a collector based in Seattle, this Brooklands was delivered through Bentley of Beverly Hills in November of 2008. Beautifully outfitted in Black paint with a tan leather interior, it is supremely outfitted for long-distance touring, perfectly comfortable for four adults and their luggage to cross continents in leaps and bounds.

Regular service is evidenced by the stamps present in the accompanying service manual, showing services every two years until January of 2016 at 1,612 miles. In June of 2016, the car was sold to its current and second owner and subsequently imported to Switzerland, where it has remained ever since. During this time it has remained largely in storage and has received an oil change by the owner’s own mechanics in July of 2019.

Having travelled less than 1,700 miles from new, the Brooklands presents in exceptional condition throughout. Accompanied by its original owner’s manuals, including the aforementioned service manual, it also retains two boot-mounted Bentley umbrellas, in addition to previous U.S. ownership information, as well as a clean CARFAX report.

Considered by many to be the most collectable Bentley made thus far into the 21st century, the Brooklands represents Bentley at its very best and is considered by many to be a modern classic. Benefitting from just two owners and less than 1,700 miles from new, finding a better example would certainly be difficult.
