Introduced in 2006, the 2010 Bentley Azure is Bentley's most prestigious convertible. The three ton drop-top is powered by a hand-built 6.8-liter twin-turbo V-8 with 450 hp and a staggering 645 lb-ft of torque linked to a 6-speed automatic. EPA economy figures are 9/15 mpg city/hwy. In true Bentley tradition, the British coachbuilder custom builds each Azure by hand, with only the finest and highest quality materials and craftsmanship. Optional 19 or 20 inch wheels, real wood veneers, genuine leather hides, and numerous comfort, technology, and safely features make the Azure a true convertible land yacht that only Bentley could achieve.
With only a few hundred Azures being built each year, the value of this convertible is all in the intangibles: prestige, luxury and exclusivity. But it is the tangible touches that give the car its reputation, such as natural wood veneers and a stately exterior design that makes a statement like no other.
For 2010, the Bentley Azure returns only in the performance-themed T, featuring a twin-turbocharged 6.75L V8 that makes 500 horsepower as opposed to last year's 450 in non-T models. The interior is still fully customizable, with a selection of leathers for the upholstery and wood trims for the surfaces.
The Azure is similar in style and mechanics to its past stablemate, the Bentley Arnage coupe, which was discontinued for 2010. The Azure has a hand-made 6.75L V8 that makes 500 hp and a staggering 738 lb-ft of torque. This power is channeled through a 6-speed automatic transmission that features semi-automatic and sports functions, which is more than enough to get its nearly 6,000-lb body moving at a good clip. Stopping is also no problem with the optional carbon/silicon carbide brake upgrade, which Bentley claims to be the largest brake system fitted to any production car--16-inch rotors in front and 14-inch rotors in the rear with 8-piston calipers.
