At the heart of Bentley Azure lies a powerful 6.7L, twin-turbo charged V8 gasoline engine, which pumps out a power of 456 PS @ 4100 rpm, with a peak torque of 875 Nm @ 1800 rpm. The convertible is capable of accelerating from zero to 100 km/hour within 6.3 seconds and promises to deliver a top speed of 274 km/h. The twin-turbo charger system of the automobile reduces turbo-lag, thereby increasing the output of power. The car is coupled with six-speed automatic transmission as well.
Design And Comfort
Bentley Azure gets an all-steel monocoque body shell and is equipped with an electro-hydraulically operated soft-top roof. As far as exteriors are concerned, the convertible is similar to its sedan version - Arnage. Azure gets 19-inch wheels and xenon headlamps. The front grille of the car closely resembles the one flaunted by Bentley Arnage. A chrome trim runs throughout the car, including the front bumpers, which enhances the smooth flowing lines in its body. The two-door convertible offers a luxurious ride to four people.
Hand-built to stand up to Bentley's high standards, Azure gets a beautiful and well-appointed cabin to ride in. Upholstered in finest leather, its front seats are power-adjustable. The veneer wood trim adds to the flair. The tri-zone climate control ensures a relaxing ride when the soft top is closed. Standard features found inside the cabin of Azure include audio system with 6 CD auto changer, individual side-to side heating and air conditioning control and facility for simultaneous operation of all side windows, with one touch lowering capability.
Ride And Handling
Bentley Azure is surprisingly smooth at low speeds and remains stable as the speed increases. The car has considerable body stiffness, thanks to the high-tech carbon fiber cross brace incorporated in it. This stiffness proves to be quite beneficial for handling it and provides a refined ride as well. Contributing to the excellent handling of the automobile is its finely-tuned double wishbone suspension system.
