2011 Bentley Azure T

Highlights

  • Just 17,000 miles from new 
  • Full Bentley & specialist service history 
  • Exceptionally well kept condition 
  • One of only 24 RHD from total 80 built 
  • Long MOT to August 2024 with no advisories 

The Appeal 

Described by none other than Evo magazine as possessing ‘epic power,’ the 500bhp Azure T was the final flourish for a very traditional, hand-built type of Bentley. Just 80 left the factory, of which only 24 were RHD cars like this one. It is likely one of the last registered. 
It is magnificent, a paean to the coachbuilding art from its sleek lines to its bespoke tooled interior. The Flying Fountain Blue metallic paintwork combines with a two-tone dark blue and cream interior, all in the sort of condition you would expect of such a high-quality car with just 17,000 miles on the clock.
These cars cost £245,000 new, even more when specified as this one is with features like the Naim high end stereo. It comes to market with full service history - there are 10 stamps from main dealers and specialists. The MOT history is similarly illustrious with no advisories throughout its life. The current test runs to August 2024. 
Opportunities to acquire the ultimate evocation of Bentley’s hand-built era do not come along often. And this low mileage, highly cared for car is one of the best. 



The History and Paperwork

  • First registered 18th August 2011
  • Three registered keepers from new 
  • Vendor acquired the car on 4th October 2016 
  • Indications are that just 80 Azure Ts were built 
  • Of these 22-24 were RHD examples like this one
  • The car was launched in late 2008 and most are 2009 registered when production ended 
  • That makes this car a very late example and likely one of the last registered
  • Unblemished MOT records with no advisories on any test back to the first in 2015
  • MOT to 28th August 204 with no advisories and 17,048 showing on test 
  • Full service history with 10 stamps by Bentley and specialists 
  • All handbooks and service books are present.
  • Currently, 1 key but 2 more have been ordered.

The Condition

  • Beautiful Flying Fountain Blue metallic paintwork 
  • Dark blue electric roof in unmarked condition 
  • Unmarked condition inside and out reflecting low mileage 
  • Factory Azure T specification 20in 5 spoke 2 piece alloys unmarked
  • Upgraded Azure T aesthetics influenced by Bentley MkVI
  • ‘Le Mans’ front wing grilles
  • Underside with no issues to report and no structural MOT advisories
  • Unmarked hand-crafted interior with two-tone blue and cream finish 
  • Two-tone dashboard and steering wheel 
  • Quilted leather interior with no visible wear
  • Smart burr walnut veneers 
  • Original factory radio system with remote control 
  • Navigation with pop-up display 
  • Bentley factory-fitted mobile phone 
  • Upgraded Naim sound system 
The sleek lines of the standard Azure were upgraded for the T, the car gaining a fresher, more modern look with purposeful detailing including front wing vents and bumper and radiator grille mesh. 
The Flying Fountain Blue metallic of this car complements these lines, particularly when married to the dark blue roof and two-tone blue and cream interior of this car. Throughout the exterior and interior it presents as new, reflecting the low miles and owners. 
The interior is a particular delight, a symphony of hand-crafted fittings from the quilted leather cream seats, hand-stitched two-tone leather dashboard and beautifully finished veneers. This car has the upgraded Naim stereo system and a Bentley mobile phone. 



The Mechanics 

  • 6,761cc Bentley hand-built twin turbo V8 engine developing 500bhp 
  • 6spd automatic gearbox with centre console shifter
  • 0-60mph in 5.2secs
  • Full service history with 10 stamps to 17,048 miles in August 2023
  • Engine covers are present and were removed for photographs but are now back on.
The Azure T may evoke gentle, relaxing cruising along sun-dappled boulevards, but this is a car of two characters. It is perfectly suited to such cossetting progress. But, should the conditions require it, the driver can unleash the car’s supercar side. 
The venerable Bentley V8 is equipped with twin turbos, sufficient to deliver 500bhp and despatch the 60 spring in the low seconds. Contemporary reviewers described the performance as epic. The car’s surprises don’t end there: the Aure T was equally capable in the bends, revealing an engaging and surprisingly nimble chassis.
Of course, this car is more about knowing that performance is there, rather than regularly or even ever accessing it. Certainly this example appears never to have been driven that way. That sense is supported by the exceptionally low mileage and run of 10 service stamps. All the work has been done irrespective of mileage and by main dealers and specialists.

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.
