The Bentley Brooklands was introduced in 1992 as a replacement for the Bentley Mulsanne S and Bentley Eight models. It was intended as a slightly cheaper alternative to the Bentley Turbo R, featuring the same styling, underpinnings and the Rolls-Royce 6.75-litre V8 engine, but without the more powerful model's turbocharger. 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 more curvaceous design elements surrounding the leather-wrapped centre console. The steering wheel and interior door panels remained largely unchanged, the major change arrived in the form of relocating the gear selector to the centre console. The interior continued to be surrounded by ample woodgrain which featured engraved, lighter-coloured outlines on the door panels.

The vendor advises that in 1997 when the car was new, it went abroad as an Ambassador's car. It then returned to the UK in 2000. It is believed to be one of 127 built and is described as being in very good condition. Please not that this is one of the few LWB made by Bentley.

The car comes with new lambs wool over carpets in blue, and the registration "44 PD" which has been valued at circa £7,500.

There are lots of old MOTs and history for the car.
