2008 Bentley Azure Convertible

Benefits of Driving a 2008 Bentley Azure Convertible

Bentley's big 2008 Azure convertible, which is closely related, both mechanically and in appearance, to the Arnage sedan, offers up traditional luxury to an extreme, with some of the best hides, trims, and veneers available on any vehicles. At more than the average U.S. house price, the Azure is in a very exclusive part of the market, where the sheer ownership experience of the vehicle is a big part of the value, elevating buyers to the top of their social class and winning favor at the country club. Compared to Bentley's Continental GTC convertible, the Azure is more traditionally styled, much more expensive, and much more exclusive, with only a few hundred made per year worldwide.

What's new for 2008?

For 2008, the Bentley Azure gets several new options, along with some new color and trim selections. New, 20-inch, 16-spoke alloy wheels are available in painted or polished form, and the carbon/silicon carbide brakes are newly offered. A new Dark Stained Vavona veneer is available, Newmarket Tan, Cashew, and Anthracite are newly offered hide colors, and Titan Grey and Venusian Grey join the exterior palette, for a total of 39 different standard exterior colors.

Model Strengths

  • Exclusivity
  • acceleration
  • swaddling ride
  • high-grade materials
  • extensive customization possibilities.

Model Review

The rear-wheel-drive 2008 Bentley Azure is powered by a 6.75L, twin-turbocharged V8 engine making 450 brake horsepower and an especially noteworthy 645 lb-ft of torque; it's paired with a smooth-shifting six-speed automatic transmission. The transmission won't need to downshift very often for passing, though; with the engine's massive torque output it promises a relaxed and refined--yet very quick--driving experience. Despite a weight of nearly 6,000 pounds, the Azure can sprint to 60 mph in only 5.6 seconds, with a top speed of 171 mph.

Original Warranty  help
Original Warranty
An original warranty is the warranty associated with a vehicle when it is brand new. In addition to the original warranty, select items, like tires, are typically covered by respective manufacturers. Also, an act of Federal law sometimes provides protection for certain components, like emissions equipment.
The original warranty is often broken down into multiple sections, including:
Basic Warranty:
Typically covers everything except for parts that wear out through normal use of the vehicle. Examples of non-covered items are brake pads, wiper blades and filters.
Drivetrain Warranty:
This warranty covers items the basic warranty does not protect. Wear and tear items such as hoses will not be covered, but key items like the engine, transmission, drive axles and driveshaft often will be.
Roadside Assistance:
The level of service differs greatly with this warranty, but many manufacturers offer a toll-free number that helps provide assistance in case you run out of gas, get a flat tire or lock your keys in the car.
Corrosion Warranty:
This warranty focuses on protecting you from holes caused by rust or corrosion in your vehicle's sheet metal.
Please check the owner's manual, visit a local dealership or look at the manufacturer's website to learn more about the specifics of the warranties that apply to a vehicle.

Basic 3 Years/Unlimited Miles
Drivetrain 3 Years/Unlimited Miles
Corrosion 3 Years/Unlimited Miles
Roadside Assistance 3 Years/Unlimited Miles

Bentley Certified Pre-Owned Warranty  help
Certified Pre-Owned Warranty
To be eligible for Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) status, vehicles generally must be recent models with relatively low mileage. CPO vehicles must also pass a detailed inspection, outlined by the manufacturer, which is measured by the number of inspected points.
Warranty coverage can vary from one manufacturer to the next. While most certified pre-owned programs transfer and extend the existing new car warranty terms, others offer a warranty that simply represents an additional year and mileage value. Always check with the manufacturer for the specific warranties they offer.
Common features and benefits of Certified Pre-Owned warranties include:
Age/Mileage Eligibility
To even be considered for certification, a car must be a recent model year and have limited mileage. The exact requirements are established by individual manufacturers.
Lease Term Certified
Some manufacturers offer certified pre-owned cars for lease. The length of the lease is often shorter than a new car lease, but it will cost you less.
Point Inspection
These inspections entail a comprehensive vehicle test to ensure that all parts are in excellent working order. The point inspection list is simply a numbered list of exactly what parts of the car are examined. While many inspections range from a 70- to 150-point checklist, most are very similar and are performed using strict guidelines. Ask your local dealer about specific details.
Return/Exchange Program
Some manufacturers offer a very limited return or exchange period. Find out if you will get the sales tax and licensing/registration fees back should you return or exchange the car.
Roadside Assistance
Most certified pre-owned programs offer free roadside service in case your car breaks down while still under warranty.
Special Financing
Reduced-rate loans are available through many certified pre-owned programs. Manufacturer-backed inspections and warranties help eliminate the risks involved with buying pre-owned, so buyers who qualify can take advantage of the great offers.
Transferable Warranty
When a new car warranty transfers with the certification of the car and remains eligible for the next owner, it is known as a transferable warranty. Once the original transferable warranty expires, an extended warranty takes effect.
Warranty Deductible
This is the amount for which you are responsible when repair work is performed under the warranty. Some manufacturers require a deductible while others don't, so always ask.

Comes with a Bentley Supported Certified Limited Warranty, with 1-year and Unlimited Miles in addition to any remaining new Vehicle Limited Warranty. New Vehicle Limited Warranty is for 3-years/unlimited mileage, from the date of the original vehicle sales. Contact your Bentley Retailer for complete limited warranty details.)
Age/Mileage Eligibility 10 years from original in-service date: unlimited
Lease Term Certified Yes
Point Inspection A thorough 79-point inspection on your Bentley is conducted by a factory-trained Bentley technician.
Return/Exchange Program No
Roadside Assistance Purchasing a Certified Pre-Owned Bentley qualifies you for our 24-hour Roadside Assistance program. Our professional customer service staff and nationwide towing network are there for you anytime of the day or night.
Special Financing Yes
Transferrable Warranty Yes
Warranty Deductible No
