Bentley Brooklands LPT 1996


Specifications


Description

Bentley is a marque associated with the utmost level of luxury, even if the archetypal Bentley was a fire-breathing, smoke-belching beast that left its well-heeled drivers' leather helmets and goggles covered in the debris of combustion and defeated rivals in its wake. Races were won. Hills were conquered. Even decades after the marque's takeover by former rival Rolls-Royce, the performance heritage of Bentley remained unquestioned.

It makes sense that the Bentley Brooklands' very name conjures up racing and endurance record heritage, referring to the first-purpose built motor racing course that didn't begin life as a horse race track. The sibling of the Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit/Spur II, the Brooklands succeeded the Eight and the Mulsanne, whose moniker also refers to a straight on a racing circuit, though in France. The Brooklands and all Bentleys carry on with racing tradition.

Compared to today's cars, it doesn't feel like a sports car. [But] for its day it is quite sporting and performance oriented. You do have to put your foot into it. The car is very heavy. When you do put your foot into it, even halfway down on the accelerator, the car really moves out, and it's extremely smooth. The power line is smooth. The transmission is butter smooth. It's the seating position in the Bentley that makes it so different. From the outside it looks like a traditional car, but when you sit in it you sit high. You have a real commanding view of the road, and there's just nothing like it. It's a nice piece of history. All these cars are riding on their history. Buy a good one, like this one, and you won't go wrong.

Car will be sold WOF'd and registered.
