Pininfarina designed and built the Azure's top. The Azure was priced at $347,645 — $36,355 more than the Continental R.
There were two versions: the Bentley Azure produced from 1995 to 2002 and the Bentley Azure Mulliner produced from 1999 to 2003. The Mulliner version comes from Bentley's in-house customizing department with a few visual differences.
The car has a 6.75 L Garrett turbocharged/intercooled V8 engine, producing 400 hp (298 kW) and 645 ft·lbf (874 N·m) of torque. The car is rear-wheel drive and is controlled via a four-speed automatic gearbox. The Azure can reach 60 mph (98 km/h) in 6.1 seconds.
The Azure was made to combine glamour and performance with the long-legged, continent-crossing capabilities of a modern sporting Bentley.
