- The model doesn't succeed another model but is a model that was introduced besides existing models.

- Upgraded Continental T engine with 440 bhp and 875 Nm at 2200 rpm.
- Extended wheel arches and widened track.
- Mesh vents in the front wings.
- New bumpers with wire mesh inserts to match the radiator grille.

Production and chassis numbers

Identification of the model in the chassis number
The chassis number of a Bentley Azure Mulliner has:
- the letter B on the third position
- the letter K on the fifth position
- a number between 61724 and 62664 (model years 1999 until 2001)
- a number between 01000 and 01200 (model years 2002 and 2003)
The next models have a partly overlapping identification:

- Bentley Azure Le Mans (between 62659 and 01043).
- Bentley Azure Final Series (between 01171 and 01238).

Further details about the production and the chassis numbers
- The chassis numbers in the years 1990 up to and including 2003 are assigned in separate series per model type (often per model year as well) or in separate series per model. A model type stands for e.g. the standard saloon models (Silver Spirit, Brooklands), the long wheelbase models (Silver Spur, Bentley LWB), the 2-door coupé models (Continental R, Continental T, et cetera).
- In 1999 and 2000 the numbers of the following models are mixed within the same series of numbers: Bentley Azure and Bentley Azure Mulliner.
- In 2001 and 2002 the numbers of the following models are mixed within the same series of numbers: Bentley Azure, Bentley Azure Mulliner and Bentley Azure Le Mans.
- In 2003 the numbers of the following models are mixed within the same series of numbers: Bentley Azure Mulliner, Bentley Azure Final Series Luxury and Bentley Azure Final Series Performance.
