New Bentley Azure unveiled at Frankfurt Motorshow
Frankfurt, 12th September 2005 Today, at the IAA Motor Show, Bentley Motors reveals the production version of the new Azure.
The luxurious four-seater Azure, which goes on sale in Spring 2006, is the latest in a portfolio of wonderfully desirable ‘dropheads’ stretching back many decades and reaffirms Bentley’s reputation as creator of the world’s most elegant convertibles. Bentley first hinted that a new Azure might be in the pipeline when it unveiled the glamorous Arnage Drophead Coupé show car at the Los Angeles Auto Show in January 2005.
The show car stimulated such interest among Bentley aficionados that the decision was quickly taken to continue its extensive development programme in time for delivery of the first customer cars in Spring 2006. Last month, Bentley announced that the production version of the show car would carry the evocative Azure name. Like its iconic predecessor, which was in production from 1995 to 2002, the new Azure becomes the flagship of the Bentley model range.
