Bentley Hooper Empress II Original Advertisement

Presented here are the original documents for the Bentley Turbo R based Hooper Empress II. This car has been featured on Bentley Spotting previously here and here.

Now for the Exclusive Preview document on the car. Click image to read.

This is the actual advertising brochure featuring the specifications for a car from 1991.

Yes the car is advertised for £350,000.00 in 1991. Now, how much is that worth in todays money? According to
£350,000.00 in 1991 is worth £771,303.41 in 2006 using the GDP, or £643,531.91 using average earnings.

By comparison the Bugatti Veyron costs €1,100,000 or £768,000.00. The same price as the Bentley Hooper Empress II.

I think the guy who picked one up for £37600 in 2005 here got a pretty good deal. Try and explain that depreciation to the wife. Her shoe collection does not really matter any more.

Now for some high resolution photographs.
