1996 'P' Bentley Brooklands LWB, formerly Lord Hanson's car "A001", unique
This is a unique and very
imposing vehicle in exceptional condition
which has been known to us for several years and we have previously supplied to
a titled owner who returned the car to us in exchange for another vehicle.
The first owner was Lord Hanson who was well known for personalising his
cars and this vehicle is no exception, finished in a special order colour
and specified with a Rolls Royce interior and Rolls Royce running gear among
many other options detailed below.
The car has covered
39,000 miles with a superb service history detailing previous maintenance at
565, 4257, 8558, 12558, 17115, 20385, 22345, 26180, 30129, 31580, 33155,
33424, 36167 and 39491 miles. In addition to the fully stamped service book we have
full MOT history from VOSA together with many previous MOT's and full build
history for the vehicle detailing all Lord Hanson's personal options. Upon
Lord Hanson's passing ownership of the vehicle transferred to his Widow who
sold the car to a lady from whom we initially bought
the car some years ago.
The entire car is in
excellent order throughout with little signs of use and has very obviously
been carefully owned and driven. Finished in stunning Oporto
red with black everflex roof and beige hide with Portland Stone carpets,
beige hide roof lining, black top roll and beige bottom roll. The rear
compartment is further equipped with reclining seats, picnic tables, foot stools, illuminated vanity mirrors
and storage compartment in the rear armrest. Lord Hanson specified a Rolls Royce interior
padding to the rear seats making them exceptionally comfortable. Sporting a
chrome radiator shell and chrome bumper tops, Bentley badging to the Rolls
Royce instruments and Bentley foot pedals. The vehicle drives exactly as it should and was specified with Rolls Royce
engine and Rolls Royce suspension. The vehicle is very responsive and drives
beautifully, exactly as you would expect with such a low mileage and fastidious service
