2000 Bentley Azure

History

Luxurious, desirable, distinguished - the Azure is a thoroughbred Bentley. Steeped in heritage, yet, unquestionably a convertible for the twenty-first century. Never demanding attention, yet always receiving it.

Since the 1920s, Bentley has been producing remarkable, sporting Drophead Grand Tourers that radiate sophistication and elegance.

In the Azure, the spirit and excitement of every Bentley convertible throughout the decades is revived for the 21st century. From the elegance of the S1 Continental Park Ward, the spectacular lines of the 70's Corniche, through to the glamour of the original Azure.

The new Azure is a unique combination of living heritage, exhilarating performance and handcrafted refinement.

Azure
Thundering through the 1990s, the original Bentley Azure reset the expectations of every arbiter of style.

Exquisitely styled by famed Italian designer, Sergio Pininfarina, the Azure has now ascended to genuine iconic status. Becoming a byword for luxury and style, the Azure carried its handsome lines with an irrepressible glamour.

The beauty of the Azure is immediate. A sculptured masterpiece with unique styling, advanced technology and unashamed glamour – all in a contemporary style.

Convertible
The automated seven-bow roof slips effortlessly away to reveal a convertible without equal.

Down, the roof and its mechanism are completely and automatically stowed beneath a hide-trimmed tonneau cover. Up, the Azure's three layer canvas roof provides superlative sound and temperature insulation.

The new Azure is a unique blend of heritage and modern technology, completed by traditional Bentley touches.

The laser-cut stainless steel grille, the distinctive twin headlamps, and the high waist-line that symbolise the timeless and classic Bentley design. All rounded off with the black winged ‘B' badge, confirming the heritage and Bentley bloodline.

Styling
The Azure has an elegant, fluid silhouette with a high waist line, low roof, and fine sporting line.
Its raked windscreen adds contemporary style to an elegant frame.

Luggage
Give yourself the room to roam. This unrivalled convertible features a large luggage area that complements the overall spaciousness of the design. Room enough even for two golf bags...

The Azure's convertible roof stows into its own separate compartment. This means that roof up, or roof down, the Azure's excellent luggage capacity is unaffected.

Performance and Control
The Azure is powerful in a way that only a Bentley can be. State of the art engineering ensures an effortless, yet exhilarating drive – safe, powerful, comfortable. Bentley's legendary V8 engine provides stunning performance with peerless refinement; a unique combination that puts the Azure beyond compare.
