|We are very happy to offer you this wonderful Bentley Azure. It is a 1997 car finished in Black with beige leather. The car has 85K on the clock and a good service history.|
The Azure debuted for 1995 on the platform of the Continental R model, which had been launched in 1991. At 210 inches (5,334 mm) in length and 5,750 pounds (2,610 kg) in weight, the Azure often surprised onlookers with its size and bulk, intended to both convey a sense of "presence" and allow for comfortable seating of four adult passengers.
Power came from the company's stalwart 6.75 Liter V8, featuring a single, intercooled Garrett turbocharger and producing 400 horsepower (298 kW) and 645 ft·lbf (875 N·m) of torque; power was routed to the rear wheels via a modified, General Motors sourced 4-speed automatic transmission. With a 0 to 60 miles per hour time of 6.1 seconds, the Azure was very fast for a car of its size, weight and poor aerodynamic profile.
Owing to the limited space and workforce at Bentley's Crewe factory, the Azure's thick, powered convertible top was designed and manufactured by Pininfarina, which significantly added to the vehicle's cost. New in 1995, the Azure was priced at $347,645 -- $36,355 more than the Continental R on which it was based.
Our car is finished in Beige leather which looks superb, it is in a very good condition commensurate with the mileage. All the dials and instruments seem to work.The carpets are good and the wood also. It is not a fresh restoration or a perfect car, just a nice well looked after example.
This Bentley is finished in Black and the car presents very well indeed. The wheels and tyres are all good also.
With only 85k On the clock and a lovely service history this car drives exactly as it should, there is nothing to address at all. Original dleivered to Spain now on Belgium.
These Azures are real, genuine Bentley Convertibles, were extremely expensive when new and are the ones to keep for the future. Our car has sensible KM, is in the perfect colour scheme and is ready for its new owner.
