This British luxury coupe will absolutely spoil you.
If you’re looking for an exclusive, luxurious, modern coupe, this 2009 Bentley Brooklands should be on your short list. It serves up plenty of plush features and a reserved appearance which doesn’t scream for attention but will surely raise more than a few eyebrows. What they won’t know is how fun this Bentley is to drive, thanks to a powerful, responsive powertrain. Up for auction on Bring A Trailer, this British luxury coupe is a titillating option to consider.
The Dark Sapphire Metallic paint looks stately enough and helps the chrome grille surround and other trim pieces truly shine even brighter. Dual polished exhaust tips peek out from under the rear bumper, while this car rides on 20-inch factory wheels with Pirelli P Zero tires, hinting at the athletic capabilities of this Bentley. The dealer selling this car has indicated there are high paint meter readings, even after recent paint correction.
As you’d expect with any British luxury automobile, the cabin of this Brooklands has been crafted of the finest materials. Cognac leather races the seats and many other surfaces, adding a refined softness. That pairs well with the Windsor Blue leather on the dashtop, blue carpeting, and leather-trimmed floormats. Burl walnut veneer for the door panels, center console, and dash add warmth to the space. Among the many amenities is tri-zone automatic climate control, remote-controlled navigation, power-adjustable steering column with memory, and a CD player.
Providing the power to make any trip in this Bentley Brooklands a joy is a 6.75-liter twin-turbocharged V8. According to Bentley, it provides 530-horsepower and 774 lb.-ft. of torque, which is plenty for spirited acceleration when merging onto the highway or ascending a mountain pass. Mated to the engine is a six-speed ZF automatic transmission with a manual shift option. With a mere 12,000 miles showing on the odometer and seven-year service performed by a dealer in July of 2019, overall this car looks to be in good condition for its age.
