Grand Touring Tradition by WoodyR on 07/16/2008. Trim: 1997 Bentley Brooklands, Owned 3 years.
Pros: If it looks like leather, it is. If it looks like wood, it is. If it looks like wool, it is. Brutally honest and supremely comfortable. Acres of burr walnut, picnic tables, plenty of legroom in the LWB version. Fantastic A/C. Torque for days! Ultimate quality.
Cons: Only getting 13 MPG in town and 18 on the road @ 80 MPH. People think it's a Rolls-Royce. Service cost is high, as one would expect for such fabulous engineering.
Overall review: This is the first year of turbocharging on the Brooklands model. Can there be too much power? Maybe....well, no! This one marched through the America's British Reliability Run behind a turbo MGB roadster, turn for turn through 5 states & mountain roads! Took a week to get the smile off my face! Put 3030 miles in 6 days on this sweetheart. This car will never wear out. Quality is always stylish.
