LA 2008 Live: Bentley Azure T doesn’t attract much attention

  • “¢ It’s for the uber-rich that want more power and wind flowing through their hair.
  • “¢ Power comes from a  6¾ liter twin-turbocharged V8 that makes 500-hp with a peak torque of 738 lb-ft. Mated to a 6-speed ZF automatic transmission.
  • “¢ 0 to 60 mph in 5.2 seconds with a top speed of 179 mph.
  • “¢ There are a lot of other things that you can look younger and cooler in doing 0 to 60 mph in 5.2 seconds than a chauffeur driven car.

Bentley has unveiled the new Azure T, a stable mate to the Azure that it says has 11 percent more power and 14 percent more torque. We highly doubt that a Bentley driver is concerned with performance, so we figure Bentley should just concentrate on becoming more green and watching their CO2 emissions like they said they were going to do earlier this year.
