Bentley strikes with topless beauty

2005-09-15 09:12

Bentley unveiled the luxurious four-seater Azure at the Frankfurt Motor Show. It takes most of its design cues from the glamourous Arnage Drophead Coupe concept car which was shown at the Los Angeles Motor Show in January this year.

The new Azure is shares its face and platform with the current Arnage range.

However, the entire cabin and rear section of the car are newly designed, with a striking bespoke interior.

Its folding roof on the convertible is operated hydraulically and is stowed beneath the hide-trimmed tonneau in under 30 seconds.

The twin-turbocharged V8 engine, double-wishbone suspension and extremely rigid body structure of the Arnage provide a state-of-the-art basis for the new Azure.

It is powered by a 336 Kw version of the Arnage's 6.75-litre twin-turbocharged intercooled V8 engine and produces 875 Nm.
