2009 Bentley Brooklands
The all-new Bentley Brooklands is scheduled to go on sale in early 2008 as a 2009 model. Did you get yours? If not, I'm afraid you're out of luck -- the 550 examples that Bentley will build are already spoken for. Among the features of the $340,990 four-seat Brooklands: All-leather interior, special 20" wheels, and a 6.75 liter V8 (530 horsepower and 774 lb-ft of torque; the latter is, according to Bentley, the highest torque rating of any automotive engine ever produced) that whisks the Brooklands to 60 MPH in five seconds flat.
