2008 Bentley Brooklands coupe shows up at the Geneva Motor Show

The 2008 Bentley Brooklands is a powerful, muscular and rakish grand touring coupé with classic British proportions, in the finest Bentley tradition. “Bentley’s proud sporting pedigree, forged by the exploits of the immortal Bentley Boys on the famous Brooklands racetrack in the 1920s, was the inspiration for our coupe,” says Bentley chairman Franz-Josef Paefgen. While the latest Brooklands is influenced by Bentley’s fine coupé lineage, its design and engineering are completely up to date. The proportions of long bonnet, short front overhang, and long rear overhang achieve the design objective perfectly, while the low roofline, steeply raked screens, and pillarless side glass convey both power and movement. Unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, the new Bentley Brooklands gets its power from a 6.75 liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that produces 530 horsepower and 775 lb-ft of torque.

As with the latest Arnage, the V8 engine is mated to a six-speed transmission. This exclusive luxury coupe will be produced in a limited number of 550 only and you can lay your hands on it in the first half of 2008.
