‘’ The open road. The open skies. The Azure. ’’
Can you see yourself driving along the coast on a beautiful summer’s day? This Bentley Azure is the best option for it.
Originally designated for construction in 1995 when it debuted at the Geneva Motor Show, the first series was offered on the Continental R platform. In every sense a Bentley, with perfect interior refinement and a flowing silhouette. This is a car that takes a mere 25 seconds for its roof to glide away revealing the freedom of the heavens. Freedom symbolised by the Flying ‘B’ radiator mascot proudly installed atop that famous radiator grille. An iconic piece of sculpture reinterpreted for the new century.
ABOUT THIS SPECIFIC EXAMPLE
What is beautiful about this car is that it was originally delivered by Bentley dealer Hessing in 1998.
Its first owner drove the car from 1997 to 2013 and sold it to the last owner. We can of course be brief about the colour combination. What could be more chic than a dark blue Bentley with a cream interior and blue accents.
The Bentley was well maintained and only drove 89.000 kilometers since new which means less then 4.000 kilometers a year.
The exterior of the car shows minimal traces of use. It is clearly visible that the previous owners have always handled the car with care and that the car has been well maintained.
Even the folding, blue roof shows minor traces of use.
The paint on the Bentley is very nice too.
The interior of the car, like the exterior, looks neat. There are no major damages, but the interior has the condition you can expect from a car with 89,000 km.
The driver seat show some minor signs of use while the passenger seat and rear seat is in as new condition.
The carpet of the driver show a little damage but this can be solved relatively easy.
As for the driving experience of this Bentley, it is, of course, Bentley through and through.
Power came from the company’s stalwart 6.75-litre V8, featuring a single, intercomleed Garrett turbocharger and rated in the region of 365 bhp – Rolls-Royce and Bentley did not yet give official power numbers at the time of the Azure’s introduction.
This V8 engine gives the car a smooth but powerful feel. A computer-controlled four-speed automatic gearbox brings a smoother shift and more interaction to the driving experience.
Of course, the Azure is at its best with the roof open. So we also believe that this Azure is the perfect car for a sunny day.
