Bentley Azur 2 Door Spyder by Jankel

Every time I see photos of this model of car I smile.



Is it a matter of people being able to obtain simply what they want.



I want a convertible Bentley Turbo R please.



As Australians say, 'No worries, mate.'

Speak to Mr Robert Jankel and he will make you one. He calls it a Bentley Azur 2 Door Spyder.

And do you want one?

Yes? Well pop yourself on ebay Item number:280598821409 and pick one up from Kyoto, Japan.



Here it is.



It is a very rare sight, in quite a nice colour.



I do wonder what the Badge to the right says? Azur Spyder? Jankel? I'm not sure.



The ebay ad says "1980 Bentley CONVERTIBLE"





"SUPECIAL ORDER MADE 2 DOOR CONVERTIBLE"





"SUPER LOW MILE RUN ONLY 12000KM"





"SUPER RICH ONE OWNER FROM NEW COST U$650000 WHEN NEW"



Now I can not say that this rear seat is quite standard on a Bentley!





Now to the Chassis number SCBZE02B3KCX26706.



So in fact it is not quite a 1980 Bentley as the ad states, but a 1989 Bentley.



And talking about models, it is actually not a Bentley Turbo R, but a Bentley Eight.



There is no Turbo, but it does have a 6.75 Litre V8, naturally aspirated with a catalytic converter.



It certainly one special car.



The ad concludes with "NOW US$62000 INCLUDE SHIPPING FEE TO YOUR BEST SEA PORT japan@i-ml.com"



I would love to own it, but the steering wheel is on the wrong side.

Check out a previous one for sale in Japan here, and a Rolls-Royce version also in Japan previously for sale here.

Good luck to the person who buys it, and thank-you to Lee for sending in the link.

You'll have a hard job talking to Mr Jankel - he died in 2005.....
