The Bentley Brooklands.
A sumptuously produced book that will appeal to motoring enthusiasts worldwide and includes exclusive interviews with many of the key designers and engineers of the Brooklands, plus full technical specifications.
Since the groundbreaking debut of W.O. Bentley’s mighty 3-litre sports car in 1921, Bentley has been producing some of the world’s finest motor cars. First unveiled at the Geneva Salon of 2007, the Bentley Brooklands coupe is no exception, combining exquisite craftmanship and the height of luxury with nerve-tingling performance. The Bentley Brooklands is a glorious celebration of this remarkable, handmade grand tourer. Featuring a fascinating insight into the car’s design and manufacture, and a first-hand account of how it performs on the open road, the book also follows the Brooklands as it is driven from London to the south of France to commemorate the famous ‘Blue Train’ race of 1930 between a Bentley Speed Six and the Calais – Mediterranean Express. With stunning photographs throughout, The Bentley Brooklands is a wonderful tribute to a landmark Bentley – a true driver’s car in the finest traditions of the marque’s history.
