Bentley Brooklands: First shipment sells out

If you were thinking of getting your hands on a $350,000 Bentley Brooklands this year, you’re a bit out of luck. With a total of 140 orders taken for 2008, Bentley has sold out its first shipment of the Brooklands. Now the people looking to ride in the beautiful luxury coupe will have to wait two years, but they should act quick because Bentley will only be making 550 units of the Brooklands (that means only 410 are left).

The new Bentley Brooklands gets its power from a 6.75 liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that produces 530 horsepower and 775 lb-ft of torque. As with the latest Arnage, the V8 engine is mated to a six-speed transmission.
