According to Autoflotte, the first year’s production of the Bentley Brooklands is already sold out. “The interest in the Brooklands since its premiere on the Geneva Auto Show exceeded our expectations,” said Bentley boss Franz Josef Paefgen. The Brooklands will be limited to 500 units and will be available for sale starting the first quarter of 2008.
Designed after a race car, the Bentley Brooklands is powered by a V8 engine with an output of 530bhp (395kW) at 4000 rev/min and an astonishing 1050Nm (774lb ft) of torque at 3250 rev/min – the highest-ever torque of any V8 automotive engine in the world. Top speed is 183 mph.
