1997 Bentley Brooklands Automatic
Reg. no. 100 TPJ
Chassis no. SCBZE20CXVCH59779
Engine no. 88213L410M/TTV
Introduced in 1992 to complement the similar but slightly more powerful Turbo R, the Brooklands initially featured a naturally aspirated version of the long-serving 6.75 litre V8. From 1996, however, a light-pressure turbo was fitted. While not as rapid as the Turbo R, this nevertheless gave the large, stately Brooklands a good turn of speed. Inside, it was business as usual for Bentley – vast swathes of wood adorned the dash, and the amount of leather used was enough to send cows running for cover at the mere sight of the famous winged B. A four speed automatic gearbox and smooth ride completed the picture, making this an effortlessly comfortable long-distance cruiser.
This car is in very smart condition, with good paint and a very clean interior. It was last MOT’d in 2014; when collected for storage it was not running and seemed to be stuck in park. This issue could probably be resolved with some light recommissioning work, as it seems to be an after-market immobiliser that is the issue (it is hoped that this will be resolved by the time of sale). The car comes with a V5c, the last bill of sale from 2004, and several old MOTS, bills and service history. The mileage is 27,374.
