Robert Jankel Azur

Here at Team Bentley Spotting we are big fans of coachbuilt Rolls-Royce & Bentley cars from the eighties.
So we get very excited when we discover another example of these rare cars.
And one of the rarest is the Rolls-Royce (or Bentley) Azur by Robert Jankel Designs Ltd, available in both coupe or spyder versions.Here is a Robert Jankel leaflet featuring the car:
First, the renderings...
And the specifications...
Most of the Azurs are believed to have been bought by the Brunei Royal Family and remain in their collection, but every now and then an example is listed for sale.
And here is one!
It's a 1989 Rolls-Royce Azur Spyder, originally commissioned by a Middle Eastern sheikh, freshly refinished in metalic wine red and with 74,000kms from new.  
The  conversion includes lengthening the doors, both to maintain the balance of the design and to also aid access to the rear seats, while the power-operated hood was advertised as more advanced than offered on the Rolls-Royce Corniche II Convertible of the time.
The interior also includes a bespoke centre console to the front and a redesigned bench seat to the rear.
It's a very rare and interesting car.
Please let us know if you are aware of others.
For those of you who have never heard of the Robert Jankel Azur, Team Bentley Spotting has some previous posts:
