Bentley introduced the Azure in 1995 at the Geneva Motor Show. Coachbuilder Pininfarina aided in creating the luxurious new four-seater convertible based on the Continental R, producing the shell and thick soft top, with final assembly taking place at Bentley’s Crewe factory in England. The car was powered by a 6.75-liter V-8 with a single Garrett turbocharger backed by a four-speed automatic. From 1999 onward the Azure was available in “Mulliner” trim, giving buyers the opportunity to add bespoke options. Production of the first iteration of the Azure ran through 2003 with 1,403 examples produced.
In 2006 Bentley reintroduced the Azure, this time based on the Arnage platform. The car was now powered by an impressive 450 bhp, 6.75-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 engine. Further upgrades included the engine being paired to a six-speed ZF automatic transmission. Despite its weight, the Azure was capable of achieving sixty miles an hour in 5.6 seconds, and a top speed of 171 miles per hour—very impressive for a car of its stature.
This beautiful 2008 Bentley Azure is finished in Black Sapphire Pearl with a blue convertible top. It rides Pirelli P-Zero tires mounted on factory wheels. As with all Bentleys, the Azure has a graceful silhouette with the Flying B mascot prominently leading the way. The refined interior is trimmed in a lovely leather accented by rich wood trim with numerous luxury appointments. According to the Azure’s CARFAX report, this example has had just three owners from new, with one minor accident reported in 2016. Today the car remains in wonderful condition throughout, having traveled less than 22,000 miles from new. It is accompanied by its original owner’s manuals.
One of only 716 Bentley Azures produced from 2006 to 2009, this opulent four-seater grand tourer is the ideal luxury convertible for open-road enjoyment.
