1996 'N' Bentley
Brooklands, three thousand miles from new, must be seen.
Very probably the lowest
mileage Brooklands in existence, this car is a one off opportunity having covered just 3,600 miles
from new and is without question the finest example available, ready to
win any concourse event.
Garaged all it's life, the
car has the appearance of a brand new vehicle with quite literally not a
single blemish to be
found. The paintwork is totally
original throughout, the car has never had any cosmetic repair whatsoever
nor is any needed, there is no sign of corrosion anywhere on the bodywork,
wheel arches etc are all pristine. The seats look as though they have never been sat in
and the engine oil is so clean you can barely see it. On the road the car
performs exactly as you would expect with all the controls and switchgear
still feeling like a brand new car, it even smells new !
The service book details
Bentley main agent maintenance at 471, 949, 1280, 1969 and 2840 miles, the
latest service, carried out by Bentley Cheshire to
address any issues from the cars lack of use. In addition to the service
book we have every MOT from new together with full build history from the
factory. This car with options as specified was £140,000 new.
Purchased new by an
elderly gentleman who was sadly widowed shortly after purchase, the car
was sent for MOT and Oil change every year but seldom used as the car
reminded the gentleman of his wife, likewise he would not sell the car as
it reminded him of his wife. The original owner eventually sold the
car to an elderly RREC member enthusiast who retained ownership for two
years, covering around 500 miles before deciding to pass the car to
ourselves as he felt it was a shame to use the car with such low mileage.
The car probably belongs in a museum or in a collection where it can be
preserved for future generations, although it does seem a tragedy for such
a stunning car to be unused.
N.B. We have turned down
an offer of £36,500 from a gentleman who runs a fleet of funeral cars and
wanted to convert this car into a 6 door limousine - it is a £42,000
conversion so the gentleman only buys low mileage cars. We refused this
offer as we could not with good conscience allow this to happen to such a
stunning vehicle, he did however buy a 13,000 mile car from us. We will
now accept £35,000 for this car but ONLY from an enthusiast who will
cherish the vehicle and maintain it accordingly.
Finished in beautiful
Aegean blue with Royal blue sports interior, light grey headlining and
Norse blue carpets with chrome radiator shell, chrome mirrors, chrome
headlamp surrounds and chrome bumper inserts. The interior is of course
completely unmarked and the entire vehicle has the appearance of a brand
new car. On the road the car performs exactly as it did when new, this
really is like stepping back in time and driving a brand new Brooklands.
Specification of the period
active ride control, split level climate control air conditioning,
electric seats, two stage heated seats, cruise control, Alpine stereo with CD changer
and remote control, remote central
locking, alarm, immobiliser, electric windows front and rear, electric

counter, driver and passenger air bags, 17 inch alloy wheels with brand
new Avon Turbospeed tyres all round, replaced as the original tyres were
20 years old.

supplied with a new MOT with no advisory notices.
This is a unique
opportunity for a collector or marque enthusiast, when it's gone it's gone and it
will be impossible to find another. Offers not invited, if we were closer
to retirement we would not be selling the car at all.
