The 2009 Bentley Azure, which is largely unchanged from the 2008 Azure, is a luxurious blend of top-down motoring and powerful performance. The Azure is a 2-door ultra-luxury exotic convertible that is powered by a 6.75L V8 producing 400 hp and 616 lb-ft of torque. This V8 engine is coupled to a 6-speed automatic transmission strong enough to handle the torque from the Azure. The Azure has a long list of standard features, including 39 colors to choose from, one-touch power folding mirrors, park distance control, 19-inch alloy wheels, a fully automatic canvas roof with heated rear glass, 6-CD changer and Bluetooth. Available options for the 2009 Bentley Azure include a jewel fuel filler cap, 5 styles of 19-inch wheels as well as 20-inch wheel options, carbon-ceramic brakes, a Naim premium audio system and an iPod interface. The Bentley Azure has a classic design appeal with modern underpinnings to keep you happy and comfortable regardless of whether you are running to the grocery store or heading out to wine country for the weekend. The Bentley Azure gets 12 mpg city/20 mpg hwy.Read more Read less
Not much is new for the 2009 Bentley Azure. The standard R model still has a 6.75L V8 under its long hood making 450 hp and 645 lb-ft of torque. The interior is still fully customizable, with a selection of leathers for the upholstery and wood trims for the surfaces. The newest addition is a built-to-fit Naim sound system that optimizes the listening experience inside the Azure, top up or top down.
Quiet ride for a powerful convertible; new custom Naim sound system; luxury interior; exclusivity from limited build numbers
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.
