Bentley claims that this is the world's most exclusive production coupe, which goes some way to justifying a starting price of around $350,000. Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the famed Brooklands racing circuit with a 530-horsepower version of Bentley's twin-turbo V8, this is an old-school Bentley for those with old-school money. The nouveau riche should make do with the Continental GT.

The Brooklands shares much of its hardware with the Arnage sedan and Azure soft top, but Bentley is anxious to avoid claims that this is no more than a tuned, hardtop version of the cabriolet. The styling takes its inspiration not just from the Azure but also from the Arnage-derived Continental R coupe, which ceased production in 2003.

The Brooklands' twin-turbo 6.75-liter V8 is the most powerful engine that Bentley has ever produced. It also produces more torque than any other production-car V8. Engine calibration changes have increased the engine's output by 30 hp to 530 hp, while the already gargantuan torque output rises 36 pound-feet to a slightly silly 774 lb-ft.

Harnessing this power is a six-speed ZF-built automatic transmission, which was introduced for the 2007 Arnage. Performance figures for the Bentley Brooklands are yet to be announced, but expect a time to 60 mph of around 5 seconds and a top speed of about 180 mph.
