1997 Bentley Brooklands LPT

Highlights

  • Facelift 1996 car with 295bhp light pressure turbo 
  • Very low mileage of only 36,00 miles 
  • Extensive service history to 34,754 miles 
  • Long MOT to June 2025 with no advisories 
  • Smart dark blue over cream colour scheme 
  • Tidy and very usable Brooklands

The Appeal 

Early Brooklands cars were designed to channel the style and handling of the Turbo R but not quite the performance. Not so the post-1996 facelift cars. Adding a light-pressure turbo to the smooth 6.75L V8 delivered 295bhp, just like those first Turbo Rs. 
Just 675 RHD cars like this one were built. It was one of the last to leave the line, finished in handsome dark blue metallic with a fetching cream leather cabin. The mileage is a paltry 36,000 documented miles from new, mainly in the hands of one 18-year keeper. Despite the sparing use, he kept the servicing up to date - regular stamps applied by main dealers and marque specialists running from new to 34,754 miles. The history file also reveals extensive maintenance and regular checks by well-regarded Phantom Motor Cars. 
In good overall condition, this is a tidy and very usable turbocharged Brooklands whose condition is confirmed by a long, advisory-free MOT.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.

Anti-sniping

Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £9,999 £100.00
£10,000 to £49,999 £250.00
£50,000 to £99,999 £500.00
£100,000 + £1,000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.

You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

Pre-authorisation

We may hold a pre-authorisation charge on your card until the end of the auction when the hold will be cancelled. If you win, we'll take a security deposit which counts towards the payment for the vehicle and isn't any extra cost to you.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you're able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
