Bentley has taken its Azure luxury convertible and upgraded, well, everything. The result is the Azure T or, as Bentley puts it, the world's most elegant convertible.
Thanks to twin-turbocharging, the Azure makes 500 horsepower, but the real jaw-dropper is the 737 pound feet of torque.
The seating surfaces are skinned in any of the 25 hides available from Bentley, but in "T" trim they are diamond quilted.
The interior is riddled with all sorts of neat details like the diamond patterned scuff plates in the door handles.
Flying B logos are embossed into the seatbacks.
Black gauge faces are on of the few visible features that denote the higher "T" trim level.
Power is sent to the wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission with three modes (Drive, Sport,and Manual).
No plastics to be found here! The use of real wood, metal, and leather through out the interior costs a hefty weight premium, but with 737 foot pounds of torque on hand, the Azure T can afford it.
Externally, dark mesh grills and fender vents join 20-inch alloy wheels in distinguishing the Azure T from the standard Azure.
Bentley owners get the choice of 42 exterior paint colors. I'm fairly sure that pink isn't one of them.
Out back the Azure T gets a distinct dual exhaust system.
Bentley's engineers have also upgraded the suspension and brakes, offer an optional carbon ceramic brake package that sports the largest discs of any vehicle on sale today.
Even simple things like the headlamp switch are made from real metal.
Get used to seeing this finely crafted fuel filler cap. If the the standard Azure's EPA combined 11.7mpg is any indicator, the Azure T probably doesn't get the best fuel economy. Wait, Bentley owners don't pump their own gas... nevermind.
