The Bentley Brooklands is a full-size luxury car introduced for 1992 as a replacement for the Bentley Mulsanne and Bentley Eight models. It was intended as a slightly cheaper alternative to the Bentley Turbo R, featuring the same styling, underpinnings and the Rolls-Royce 6.75 litre V8 engine, but without the more powerful model's turbocharger.
The Brooklands was replaced by the Bentley Arnage in 1998. At the 2007 Geneva Auto Show, Bentley resurrected the Brooklands nameplate for a two-door, four-seat coupé to be built for the 2008 model year.
The 1992-1997 Brooklands was driven by a 6.75 litre Rolls-Royce V8 engine with a four-speed automatic transmission. The vehicle was rear-wheel drive, and featured independent front and rear suspension. While not as large as some other ultra-luxury cars, the Brooklands remained quite large with an overall length of 5,370 millimetres (211.4 in) and wheelbase of 3,162 millimetres (124.5 in) (5,268 millimetres (207.4 in) and respectively 3,061 millimetres (120.5 in) in SWB trim).
