1993 Bentley Brooklands n\The Bentley Brooklands was introduced in 1992 as a replacement for the Bentley Mulsanne S and Bentley Eight models. It was intended as a slightly cheaper alternative to the Bentley Turbo R, featuring the same styling, underpinnings and the Rolls-Royce 6.75-litre V8 engine, but without the more powerful model's turbocharger. The Brooklands continued Bentley's relatively angular design theme, which was also used on contemporary Rolls-Royce vehicles, throughout the 1980s and early 1990s. The exterior design featured the classic Bentley waterfall grille as well as dual headlights with wraparound parking lights. As in many Bentley and Rolls-Royce vehicles, the Brooklands also featured the trademark descending boot-lid and chrome B-pillars. The interior remained relatively unchanged from previous Bentley models, with more curvaceous design elements surrounding the leather-wrapped centre console. The steering wheel and interior door panels remained largely unchanged, the major change arrived in the form of relocating the gear selector to the centre console. The interior continued to be surrounded by ample woodgrain which featured engraved, lighter-coloured outlines on the door panels. The vendor describes this Bentley Brooklands as a pleasure to drive and to be in very good condition throughout. The service history book is stamped up to 65,000 miles and there are service receipts from then until now. The vendor has used the car annually for his holiday in Scotland and then only used it on dry days. Although not due, the vendor has had a new MOT carried out to give the buyer confidence in their purchase. The interior is in superb original condition and it is a pleasure just to sit in and enjoy the luxury feel. We have test driven this car when we took the pictures and can verify that the car does drive very well and is indeed a pleasure to sit in.
