From 1999 to 2003, Bentley built about 1,300 Azures on the Continental platform, and the car represented the very best of the company's distinguished reputation for luxurious, even over-the-top comfort. For 2007, the Azure returns, now sitting on Arnage architecture, and it's lost nothing in its elegance.
The Azure is available in only one model--a four-seat convertible. But what a model it is. Power comes from a twin-turbocharged 6.7L V8 mated to a six-speed automatic. The engine produces a stout 450 horsepower and a robust 545 ft-lb of torque at just 1,800 rpm. The Azure is good for 168 mph and 0 to 60 mph comes in just 5.6 seconds.
Customers can chose one of 39 available exterior colors and one of 21 colors of premium hide to cover the interior. The fully automatic canvas top utilizes heated rear window glass and features a dome light, and all side windows can be lowered with a single one-touch button. The Azure rides on 19-inch, 12-spoke alloy wheels.
Inside is a plush sea of luxury, with leather or a choice of elegant woods on every surface. The premium stereo has a six-disc CD changer, and other gadgets include DVD navigation, Bluetooth hands-free telephone system, driver information panel, front and rear climate control, electrochromic self-dimming rearview, and three-position memory for the driver's seat, steering column, and exterior mirrors.
Fully loaded as it is, the Azure is not without its options. If the broad color palette isn't suitable, colors from previous Bentley model years can be special ordered. In fact, just about any color imaginable can be specified for either paint or hides. Chrome accents to the mirrors and radiators are available, as is a choice of five optional 19-inch painted alloy and chromed wheels. Two upgraded audio systems from Alpine can also be fitted.
Like all Bentleys, the Azure benefits from highly advanced standard safety features like Bosch electronic stability and traction control, anti-lock vented disc brakes, aquaplane detection, and more. In addition to a host of front and rear air bags, pop-up rollover protection is incorporated into the rear seat headrests.
The 2007 Bentley Azure is an unmistakable, stately cruiser for the discerning boulevardier, and there is little to top it for the purpose.
The finest in top-down motoring for four; ultra-exclusivity as Bentley's flagship model; hand-built luxury at every turn; unrivaled marque history.
The Azure disappeared from the Bentley lineup after the 2003 model year. For 2007, it is all-new and rides atop the platform of its sister, the Arnage. This means it is stiffer and quieter than its predecessor. Power comes from the twin-turbocharged 6.7L V8 found in other Bentleys, and the turbos are new for this year.
The car wears a distinctive Bentley face, and while styling is perhaps not as evocative as its Continental GTC stablemate, the Azure boasts a luxury interior of wood and leather like no other. Exterior color choices number close to 40, while interior hides are also fully customizable.
At 18 feet long, nearly three tons, 450 horsepower, and $330,000, there is nothing subtle about the Azure. And there is also nothing on the road to match it in terms of image, at least not until 2008 when its cousin, the Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead, debuts.
