Bentley today announced its new Azure T model will be unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show held from November 21 through November 30. Bentley Motors dubbed the new car “the world's most elegant four-seat convertible”, especially thanks to its “exhilarating, class-leading performance”. Azure T is indeed a very luxurious model, but let's see a few technical specs and what it is capable of.

Bentley Azure T is powered by a 6-liter V8 engine capable of providing a maximum power of 500 bhp combined with 1000 Nm of torque (this means an 11 percent increase in power and a 14 percent increase in torque over the regular Azure). The top speed is now rated at 179 mph (288 km/h) with a 0 to 100 km/h acceleration done in just 5.5 seconds.

The exterior styling is surely one of main attributes of Azure T, with 20-inch five-spoke “Bright Finish” alloy wheels and twin exhaust tail pipes available as standard. Beside the “Le Mans” lower front wing air vents, Azure T also features Bentley's “Jewel” fuel filler cap plus dark tint matrix upper and lower grilles. There are 42 exterior paint colors available, Bentley said in a press statement.

Tire Pressure Monitoring system is installed as standard, together with Electronic Stability Programme (formerly known as ESP) and Bentley's six-speed ZF automatic transmission with locking torque converter.

"The new Azure T reflects our passion for creating the world's most exhilarating and prestigious convertibles that, true to the Bentley T tradition, blend sophistication with a powerful presence,” Stuart McCullough, Member of Board, Sales and Marketing, said about Azure T.

Other features also include the following (all of them provided by Bentley):

Diamond quilting to seats and door panels
Drilled alloy brake and accelerator pedals
'Engine-turned' aluminium finish to fascia
Instrument faces in black
Embroidered 'Bentley' emblems to front seats and rear seat centre
