2008 Bentley Brooklands Coupé
Registration Number: LJ08 UAR
Chassis Number: SCBCCC42M89CH13810
Engine Number: 201394
Finished in anthracite metallic this stunning Brooklands Coupé is believed to be one of only 105 right-hand drive examples built. An extremely rare car, it had been in Alex's ownership since purchase at Jack Barclay in February 2010, for £170,000, with just 1200 miles on the clock. The car remains in generally excellent condition throughout.
With a twin-turbocharged V8 producing 530bhp at just 4,000rpm and over 1,000 Nm of torque, the car is stated to reach 60mph from standing in just 5 seconds.
The heavenly interior is trimmed in diamond stitched Burnt Oak Hide throughout with walnut dash fascia and is, again, excellent throughout. The wheels are the desirable 20in two-piece sport wheels.
HPI-clear, the car is presently MoT-tested until 23 May 2024 and a current V5C Registration Certificate is present. With only 23 miles covered since the last MoT, recorded mileage was 28,624 miles at the time of cataloguing.
The two most recent services include Schedule 7 service in August 2022 with P&A Wood, and Schedule 6 service on 24 August 2018, again with P&A Wood.

Buying a pre-loved, antique, or vintage item not only provides you with unique style and value for money but it also helps to reduce landfill, and the annual emissions of an antique or vintage piece can be as little as one sixteenth of those of its new equivalent!
Sworders is proud to be supporting the work of Antiques are Green - the movement that was founded in 2009 to promote “a greener future created from the past”. Read their fascinating carbon footprint study of a Georgian chest of drawers versus a modern equivalent here
