Bentley Brooklands Trophy

This is an interesting Bentley Limited Edition.



It's a 1997 Bentley Brooklands Trophy, number 6 of 28 worldwide.



It was produced to commemorate 75 years of racing heritage, with reference to the Bentley Boys and the early days of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.



However the name Trophy refers to the famous RAC Tourist Trophy races in which Charles Rolls won the race in 1906 in his Rolls-Royce 20 hp.

A Bentley 3½-Litre and later 4¼-Litre driven by E.R. Hall raced in the RAC Tourist Trophy (TT) in Ulster in 1934, 1935 and 1936.



This particular car has a beautiful Black Garnet Mica exterior finish which is also carried over to the headlamp trims and grille vents.



The body is accented by triple thin wildberry waistlines.



It also boasts a full two tone black/wildberry interior, leather headliner with rear individual rear seats.





It also features a vertical surface (or curved) door waistrail veneers with single crossbands in the base, with Rolls-Royce style wood veneer trimmed vanity mirrors inside the C-pillars.







The final icing on the cake is that all the exterior emblems are in British Racing Green.





It also has special plaque on both front door sills.



This is not your 'average' turbocharged Bentley- a very unique vehicle of which the owner must be very proud...

Yet another vehicle spotted at the RROC National meet in Toronto!
