Bentley Azure T 2009 details

The present grand Bentley, Arnage family, in a final bow. The premiere of the Brooklands from last year was a vehicle more for the crowd in England (foul-weather and friendly hard top, plus understated coupe styling, ...), the Azure T 2009 is more for America.

“The new Azure T reflects our passion for creating the world’s most exhilarating and prestigious convertibles that, true to the Bentley T tradition, blend sophistication with a powerful presence.” Stuart McCullough Member of the Board, Sales and Marketing commented.

“The Azure’s proportions provided us with the ideal platform to work with when creating the new Azure T. The prominent haunches and ‘supermodel’ body inspired our designers to create a new interpretation of a Bentley convertible with the accent placed on a more muscular, sporting stance.” notes Raul Pires, the Manager of Exterior design - Bentley Motors.

“The Azure chassis has always had an immense potential and this enables us to offer the extra power of our 500 bhp V8 engine and the driver-focused qualities of a true Bentley T without compromising ride comfort.” said Brian Gush, the Director of Powertrain and Chassis.

Trevor Gay, the Personal Commissioning Manager - Mulliner (Bentley’s commissioning specialist department), says: “The Azure has always stood apart from the rest of the Bentley range and the higher-performance Azure T will allow customers the opportunity to use the Mulliner service to create a bespoke convertible to their exact specification.”
