1997 Bentley Brooklands Turbo
Bentley is a marque associated with the utmost level of luxury, even if the archetypal Bentley was a fire-breathing, smoke-belching beast that left its well-heeled drivers' leather helmets and goggles covered in the debris of combustion and defeated rivals in its wake. Races were won. Hills were conquered. Even decades after the marque's takeover by former rival Rolls-Royce, the performance heritage of Bentley remained unquestioned.
The sibling of the Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit/Spur II, the Brooklands succeeded the Eight and the Mulsanne, whose moniker also refers to a straight on a racing circuit, though in France. The Brooklands and all Bentleys carry on with racing tradition.
