The design of the Azure is, first and foremost, unmistakably Bentley. It shares its face with the current Arnage range and its platform ensures it seats four adults in supreme comfort. But it is also unmistakably unique. The entire cabin and rear section of the car are newly designed, with a stunning bespoke interior; the objective being to create an opulent and inviting seating area that reflects its status as a car that is at home in Palm Springs or the Riviera. The complex folding roof on the convertible is operated hydraulically at the touch of a switch: the impressive, three-layer fabric assembly being elegantly stowed beneath the hide-trimmed tonneau in under 30 seconds.

The twin-turbocharged V8 engine, double wishbone suspension and extremely rigid body structure of the Arnage provide a state-of-the-art basis for the 2006 Azure. It is powered by a 450 bhp version of the Arnage’s 6.75-litre twin-turbocharged intercooled V8 engine and produces 645 lb-ft of torque.

The specification of the production version of the Azure is virtually unchanged from the original L.A. show car. The principle change is the introduction of high technology, lightweight, carbon fiber, under-floor cross braces that contribute to the exceptional levels of body stiffness, benefiting refinement, ride and handling. In addition, the chrome trimmed bumpers and sills of the show car are now painted in body color with a delicate chrome trim that runs the length of the car, enhancing the flowing lines of the Azure body.

"The production-specification Bentley Azure graces our stand at the [2005] Frankfurt Motor Show just nine months after we revealed our concept car in Los Angeles," said Bentley Motors chairman, Dr. Franz-Josef Paefgen. "We enjoy an excellent dialogue with our customers and the new Azure epitomizes how responsive Bentley is to satisfying their aspirations. Bentley develops and produces cars that people desire and that are faithful to our heritage. The new Azure is the perfect example of this philosophy."
