The Mulsanne in all of its glory was an obvious and easy replacement for the Arnage in the Bentley’s line-up, but Bentley will not be stopping there. Out with the old and in with the new, Bentley will be replacing yet another vehicle in their lineup. The Azure will be fleeing off into the distance and its replacement will be...the Azure? That’s right, folks. Bentley will be showing the old Arnage convertible the door, but will be keeping the name to provide it for the next convertible on their list; the Mulsanne convertible being called the Azure.
The 2012 Azure will be powered by the same 6.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine as the sedan producing an impressive 505 HP. This will be more than enough to sprint the car from 0 to 60 mph in 5 seconds. Also, like with the Mulsanne, the next Azure will use the same eight-speed automatic gearbox.
The convertible version will hit the market a year after the Mulsanne enriches our vehicular experience and we must say, we cannot wait. Stripping the Mulsanne of its top would be a sinfully rich experience of class and fun. We also anticipate a few more models varied from the Bentley Mulsanne. We can’t imagine spending all of that time and money to create those videos linking us to the entire process without following it up with some moneymaking varients. If we follow the Arnage lineup, we would expect a limousine version like the Arnage RL. Any ideas on what could be coming next?
