Bentley Azure T to debut at the LA show

The upcoming Los Angeles Auto Show will mark the debut of the new Bentley Azure T convertible, a more luxurious and powerful version of the Azure. The car is powered by the same engine as the Arnage T, a 6.7 liter twin-turbocharged V8 which delivers 500 hp and 1000 Nm of torque. This means that the Azure T goes from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.5 seconds and up to a top speed of 288 km/h (179 mph). The engine is mated to a six-speed ZF automatic transmission with locking torque converter and the car comes with ESP and Tyre Pressure Monitoring System as standard.

On the exterior, we’ve got a set of new features, like dark tint matrix upper and lower grilles, ‘Le Mans’ lower front wing air vents, Bentley ‘Jewel’ fuel filler cap, twin exhaust tail pipes, retractable ‘Flying B’ bonnet mascot and 20-inch five-spoke ‘Bright Finish’ alloy wheels, plus a choice of 42 exterior paint colors. The interior is everything you’d expect in a Bentley, with diamond quilting to seats and door panels, drilled alloy brake and accelerator pedals, ‘Engine-turned’ aluminium finish to fascia, instrument faces in black, embroidered ‘Bentley’ emblems to front seats and rear seat centre, knurled finish to organ stops, mirror adjustors, door handles (interior and exterior), light switch and seat lumbar controls, plus a ‘Naim for Bentley’ premium audio system featuring 10 speakers, a dual channel sub-woofer and an 1100 Watt amplifier, plus eight individual Digital Signal Processor (DSP) modes.

Bentley didn’t mention anything about the Azure T’s pricing or availability, but you can enjoy more photos after the jump.
