    Sultan of Brunei car pictures Gallery


    Bentley Time <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/cool.gif"></A>


    Bentley Buccaneer - 1 picture
    One black and white photo of what looks like a red Bentley Buccaneer and another Buccaneer under a white cover. Looking at the background in that picture, I think they were taken @ Stanstead Airport when they were about to leave for Brunei.



    Bentley Dominator - 1 picture
    Also @ Stanstead Airport, preparing to leave the UK.

    Interesting fact about the Dominator is that one of the Dominator mules was left out the back of MPW for a long time, all burnt out <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/amazed.gif"></A> You could see it from public roads. The strange thing was that it was a proper body and not a Range Rover.



    Bentley Java Estate - 1 picture
    Also @ Stanstead Airport, preparing to leave the UK.



    Bentley MonteCarlo - 1 picture
    Or at least a part of what I think is the/a yellow MonteCarlo. Too bad both pics that are known of the MonteCarlo aren't exactly great <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>



    Bentley Grand Prix - 1 picture
    Taken from behind one of AMG's 300 SL's



    Bentley Java Convertible - 1 picture
    I think that also behind that same 300 SL AMG is one, or maybe even two, Java Convertible's.



    Bentley Hardtop Convertible - 1 picture
    I don't have much information on this one. It has a retractable hardtop by Heuliez, but was put together @ MPW during the last few years the Brunei garages were in business <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/tongue.gif"></A> ('97 or '98). The only other car that is a hardtop convertible is the Silverstone, but this car doesn't look like the Silverstone at all. All the names from the big list are allready given away, accept for Phoenix... This car doesn't look like a Phoenix though <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/tongue.gif"></A>



    Bentley Spectre - 1 picture
    Some time ago I posted pictures I found of the Bentley Pegasus sedan and estate. The Sedan('s) I posted was definately the Pegasus, but I'm starting to doubt if the two estate's are really the Pegasus. If you compare this picture from today's update: http://www.supercars.net/Pics?viewPic=y&source=gal&uID=129612&gID=976&pgID=2&pID=686184&first=true with the Bentley Estate's behind the Ferrari F90: http://www.supercars.net/Pics?viewPic=y&source=gal&uID=129612&gID=976&pgID=2&pID=686192&first=true , you can conclude that they're the same car. And now, with this angle shot from the back, you can say that that model definately is not the Pegasus, but looks more like the 4-door Continental R Sedan: http://www.supercars.net/Pics?viewPic=y&source=gal&uID=129612&gID=976&pgID=2&pID=598357&first=true
    I think these cars are from the same series, their name could be Spectre or Phoenix. I'll go with Spectre <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/tongue.gif"></A>, the predesecor of the Java Estate.

    SCBZH04C4TCH00472 Bentley Spectre BP 1828



    Bentley Rapier - 5 pictures
    A few more pictures from, what we assume is, the Rapier. Unfortunately no new leads, but pics from that one time the black Rapier was spotted in London. At least they show the lines of the Rapier a bit better <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A> There is a very good chance that this car is still in the hands of the Brunei Royal Family.



    Bentley Continental Turbo - 2 images
    Only 8 turbocharged Continental's were made. Three in 1992 and five in 1995. The first three were RHD models, ordered by the Sultan of Brunei. Marinus Rijkers has provided scans of the car specification sheets on his site, rrsilvershadow.com . I've put those in the gallery too.

    Bentley Imperial
    There are six of these:
    SCBZH04C2SCH00341 Bentley Imperial
    SCBZH04C4SCH00342 Bentley Imperial BQ 11
    SCBZH04C6SCH00343 Bentley Imperial BP 6116
    SCBZH04C8SCH00344 Bentley Imperial BP 3131
    SCBZH04A1SCH00345 Bentley Imperial BN 7117
    SCBZH04AC1CH00346 Bentley Imperial BQ 205
    This Bentley, that has been in the gallery for quite a long time allready, isn't a normal Turbo R Limousine. The front end of the car is unique, coachbuilt. It definitely is a special Bentley! The indicator lights are NOT turbo R, more like the Sports Estate car. The front fender is more sloped and sporting, with a different front bumper bar and the indicator is most likely from a Bentley Continental R. This could very well be the Bentley Imperial:

    Bentley Sports Estate - 19 pictures
    This is the car that is still for sale at the Chelsea Workshop. It has been spotted in public two times now and has also been used for a little photoshoot by a Slovakian website: http://www.auto.sk/spravy/?clanok=173&strana=1 If someone could post/pm/mail a translattion, please <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    Thanks to Jordan from Bentleyspotting.com for this write-up:
    This car was made by Jankel and is based on the Bentley Turbo R. It is different to the standard Jankel made Estate or station wagon Bentley called the Val d'Isere as it has a unique front end. This car sports a similar look up front to the Bentley Continential R. It has Continential R front indicators, and under headlight mesh also from the Continential R.
    It features a hydraulic four wheel drive system, where two motors are fitted to the front hub section on the front wheels, and are driven by a hydraulic pump connected to the transmission. Quite unique. It is for first gear only and disengages after 30mph.
    A total of fifteen Bentley Sports Estates were made. The first in 1991, followed by six more cars in 1993, and a final run of eight cars in 1995. Here are the VIN numbers of the Bentley Sports Estate Car made for the Royal Family of Brunei.

    It is presumed that this car is SCBZR03AXMCH35659 the first car made in 1991.



    Bentley Race Engines
    Currently available; a limited number of Bentley 6.75 V8 twin turbo 500HP engines from the Blackpool project. These engines were a joint project between Bentley and Cosworth and were developed for special projects vehicles on behalf of the Sultan of Brunei. Engine and gearbox £ 4,950.oo inc. -> http://www.pmcuk.com/

    One of these engines has been used for the Gibbs Bentley Special, pictured here:

    Apparently Autocar UK spotted the Continental R based Pegasus during testing. Does anyone have that issue?

    Oh man, WOW <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/amazed.gif"></A>
    Super update!

    I LOVE those REAL Brunei Specials (Aston Martin, Bentley, Jaguar and Ferrari)!
    [well - most of his other cars are just normal production ones with a tuned engine and a fancy colour combo...]

    My favorite Bentley by far: BUCCANEER!!!
    I also like the latest Bentley Hardtop Convertible.

    All the hidden Brunei specials are the main reason why I'm doing this <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A> I love the eniqueness of the collection and finding new pieces of info about cars that were unknown before. All the other cars are also awesome, but not near as exciting as the true Brunei specials.

    You are a man of taste, the Buccaneer has a fantastic design <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>

  9. Sultan of Brunei car pictures Gallery

    great update

    while I think most of the brunei specials look pretty bad/very amateurish, the Buccaneer really looks excellent. shame it was never a production car.

    keep up the good work

    Hi!

    How do you like that?

    I've done this shortly after the pic appeared for the very first time.
    Beside some minor stuff like cleaning, shadow ect., I add the support for the rear wing and the "F1LM" sign in the windshield banner.

    Greetings <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    So you have a waiting list?! I just thought you're posting this as you find it... Can't wait to see what you've got for us <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  12. Sultan of Brunei car pictures Gallery

    Very nice <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A> Do you also have a version in the original size (you enlarged it by a small margin)?
     
  13. Sultan of Brunei car pictures Gallery

    THANKS! <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    Yes, I enlarged it a bit!
    Unfortunately I found the pic in original size much later than this one...
    (So this is the only version I can provide)

    Yes, of course <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/tongue.gif"></A> I've got an insane number of .txt files with leads, info, e-mails and adresses, etc. and pics of cars I've yet got to confirm/search info about or search more pics of or wait untill I've got more of the same type of car or marque to make an interesting update..
     
  15. Sultan of Brunei car pictures Gallery

    Well - at least I know that you have some Dauer 962LM stuff left <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>
     
  16. Sultan of Brunei car pictures Gallery

    Ah, I see. IMHO it's alot better than this one that was done by someone from AM Forums. Your details are nicer <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  17. Sultan of Brunei car pictures Gallery

    The one who've done this said on AMF, that it was only 5 minutes of work...

    Well - it took me a few hours until everything was the way I wanted it to be!!!

    It's not like every week or 2 weeks or whenever I want to update I go on google, type in something and find, for instance, all those Bentley's from the latest update and upload them here. The last time I searched online for pics I came up empty (alot of searches before that too), I feel like I've drained the internet <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A><A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/tongue.gif"></A> But don't worry, I've still got enough stuff in the pipeline and have made some new contacts...<A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/grin.gif"></A>

    Bugatti EB110 SS #001
    This left-hand drive EB110S bears an affixed plaque stating that ‘Bugatti has the pleasure of producing for the Royal Family of Brunei the first of its model EB110S (sic) Super Sport car.’ Accompanying documentation records that the vehicle was exported from Brunei to the UK in March 2002 and first registered in this country on 1st August 2005. It has enjoyed only two registered keepers since, both members of the same family. While in the UK the car has been maintained by Autobase, of Eccles, Manchester and comes with invoices for general servicing which has included replacing the radiator and re-gassing the air conditioning system. The most recent service recorded in the accompanying booklet was carried out on 31st October 2007 at 5,850 miles. Finished in silver with blue leather interior, ‘001’ is presented in excellent order throughout and represents a rare opportunity to acquire one of the iconic supercars of the 1990s, the performance of which has yet to be surpassed.

    To be auctioned by Bonhams December 3rd 2007 in London
