Who's the Master?!
http://www.leftlanenews.com/bentley-brooklands.htmlLeft Lane News said:British luxury carmaker Bentley today revealed the 2008 Brooklands coupe, described by the company as "the world's most exclusive coupe." Production will be limited to just 550 units, featuring the most powerful engine Bentley has ever produced.
Bentley's chairman Dr Franz-Josef Paefgen describes the motivation behind the new coupé: "Bentley's proud sporting pedigree, forged by the exploits of the immortal 'Bentley Boys' on the famous Brooklands racetrack in the 1920s, was the inspiration for our new coupe, capturing all the style, power and splendour of that era."
The new Bentley Brooklands possesses the most powerful V8 the company has ever produced – a 530bhp, twin-turbocharged 6.75-liter unit that also produces 1050Nm (775 pound-feet) of torque. As with the latest Arnage, the V8 engine is mated to a six-speed transmission.
Lifetime production will be strictly limited to just 550 cars, with deliveries expected to start in the first half of 2008.
The Brooklands' cabin is wider both front and rear than the previous Bentley Continental R coupe – the rear by 10 percent – and it easily exceeds the interior leg, knee and headroom of any luxury coupe on sale today.
