Vehicle History

Remarks

The LPT Brooklands is often considered to be the best of the Bentley range at that time. It had more than adequate performance, could reach 60 mph in just 8 seconds, and would climb to a top speed of 140 mph, but crucially the ride remained comfortable and noticeably softer than the Turbo R. Overall the Brooklands LPT is an excellent balance of speed and comfort and with just 152 of these cars ever having been produced, the majority being Long Wheelbase making this standard wheelbase even scarcer; these examples are becoming increasingly scarce and desirable. 

All handbooks are in correct leather wallet with service book and manuals. 2 sets of keys. 10 service stamps, 9 main dealer. Last serviced at Rolls-Royce/ Bentley specialists at 36,191 miles on 19.10.18.
