2008 (09M/Y) Bentley Azure

For Sale: A superb example of a late-production, final-generation Azure with low mileage, Concours success and a full Bentley service history.

The Azure was the ultimate Bentley convertible, hand-built at Crewe between 1995 and 2009, and was the last hoorah for the faithful and traditional 6.75-litre V8 engine. The model was continuously developed over its 15-year production run with the final version launched in the 2006 model year. The revised Azure was now based on the Arnage platform and power was provided by the, then-current, variant of the Bentley turbocharged V8 producing 450bhp and 645lb.ft of torque. The new Arnage was initially designed around the BMW 4.4-litre engine, however, with a rather strained relationship developing between the two manufacturers, Volkswagen was forced to significantly re-work the original 6.75-litre Rolls-Royce/Bentley V8 into a new twin-turbo, ultra-modern technology spec and, in retrospect, the car was probably better for it. A new six-speed automatic transmission fed all this power to the rear wheels and Bentley claimed a 0 to 60 time of 5.6 seconds and a top speed of 168 mph, slightly faster than the previous edition and still very good for a vehicle of this size and weight.
Fiennes Showroom are proud to present this stunning Bentley Azure Convertible which is beautifully presented in Silverlake Blue Metallic with a French Navy Blue fabric power-hood and the optional 19" six-spoke alloy wheels. The interior of modern Bentleys is simply a lovely place to be and this example is no exception. The Magnolia and Navy Blue hide is sumptuous, the acres of Burr Walnut veneer appears unmarked and the navy carpets are edged in magnolia. In addition to the standard specification (listed below), the car was optioned with the Top Roll in two-tone hide, Cabriolet Seat Covering with Embroidered Bentley Motif, Veneered Cruise-Control Switch Surround on the wood and leather-covered steering wheel and a Bentley overlay emblem to the radio flap. The sheer quality of this lovely Azure is best illustrated by the fact that it won a Concours d’Elegance Trophy at Windsor Castle in September 2016 and it has been maintained in the same condition since.

Indicating only 19,915 miles from new, this is an exceptional example that benefits from a full Bentley service history with 13 stamps in the book and maintenance invoices totalling just under £29,000.
