1997 Bentley Azure – Kansas City, MO

In 1997, what did you get from a vehicle with a sticker price of $347,645?  Top-down luxury.  Wrapped in body styling from Pininfarina, the 2-door, full four-seater Azure has a total length of 210″ (that’s 17.5 ft for a 2-door convertible) and a curb weight of 5,754 lbs.   No other car on the road could match the physical size and presence of the Azure.  Power came from a turbocharged 6.75L V8 which produced 385hp, top speed of 150 mph, and a 0-60 time of a respectable 6.3 seconds.   This black on tan Azure is a beautiful example.  Only 14,500 certified miles from new, seller is asking $77,500.

Not many of Bentleys are found in Kansas City and even fewer Azures.  Since only 182 were produced in 1997, (of which only 130 were left-hand drive) it’s rare to see one of these any place in the world.  Seller says the car is completely original and accident free with the exception of a respray of the plastic on the rear bumper due to a parking scratch.  The car has been thoroughly sorted out and has no problems.  The convertible top mechanicals have been completely redone with all new steel braided hoses.   Check out the listing and full details at AutoTrader:
