Model History

The Brooklands continued Bentley's relatively angular design theme. which was also used on contemporary Rolls-Royce vehicles. throughout the 1980s and early 1990s. The exterior design featured the classic Bentley waterfall grille as well as dual headlights with wraparound parking lights. As in many Bentley and Rolls-Royce vehicles. the Brooklands also featured the trademark descending boot lid and chrome B-pillars. The interior remained relatively unchanged from previous Bentley models with a more curvaceous design element surrounding the leather-wrapped centre console. The steering wheel and interior door panels remained unchanged. although the one major change was the relocation of the gear selector to the centre console - for decades the standard practice among R-R and Bentley models utilised a steering column mounted selector. The interior continued to be surrounded by ample wood grain which featured engraved. lighter-colored outlines on the door panels. In the U. S. prices for the Brooklands started at around $156. 00.

Interior & Equipment

The Magnolia leather piped in navy upholstery is in unmarked superb order and never reconnolised. The deep navy carpets are immaculate as are the overmats and lambswool over over mats are also in excellent condition. The Burr Walnut facia and door capping's are in 1st class order and there is no noticeable wear anywhere. what a sumptuous place to be. There is a multi cd changer with remote control. All gauges and electrics are working as they should. with so many electrics it is common for lesser vehicles to have fault needless to say this is without those faults.
