The low-slung roof and true “hardtop convertible” pillarless, body-side construction is beautiful, and makes the car look substantially smaller than the sedan.
Wheelbase and width remain as with Arnage and Azure; the Brooklands regains rear-seat legroom lost in the Azure to that car’s pop-up roll-over hoops, making Brooklands among the roomiest coupes.
As with all members of this branch of the family tree, Brooklands is powered by a 6.75 L twin-turbocharged V8 engine, each one hand-built at the Crewe England factory by a team of technicians; the team leader affixes a nameplate bearing his signature to each unit his crew assembles.
The interior is the definition of sumptuous – even the headliner is leather-trimmed. Choice abounds. If none of the standard 42 exterior colours (one, a coral, has never been picked), 25 colours of leather and three wood veneers for dash, console and door trim rotate your Rolex, send (or, better still, bring) a colour sample to Crewe, and the company’s in-house customizing operation, Mulliner, will do its level best.
