Introduced in 2006, the 2010 Bentley Azure is Bentley's most prestigious convertible. The three ton drop-top is powered by a hand-built 6.8-liter twin-turbo V-8 with 450 hp and a staggering 645 lb-ft of torque linked to a 6-speed automatic. EPA economy figures are 9/15 mpg city/hwy. In true Bentley tradition, the British coachbuilder custom builds each Azure by hand, with only the finest and highest quality materials and craftsmanship. Optional 19 or 20 inch wheels, real wood veneers, genuine leather hides, and numerous comfort, technology, and safely features make the Azure a true convertible land yacht that only Bentley could achieve.Read more Read less
For 2010, the Bentley Azure returns only in the performance-themed T, featuring a twin-turbocharged 6.75L V8 that makes 500 horsepower as opposed to last year's 450 in non-T models. The interior is still fully customizable, with a selection of leathers for the upholstery and wood trims for the surfaces.
Quiet ride for a powerful convertible; 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.
