Bentley Arnage

The Arnage is instantly recognizable thanks to new front end styling designed not only to tidy and freshen the Arnage's appearance, but also to bring the range in line with Bentley's iconic design language, as evident on the Continental R and Azure and later on the Continental GT.

Most notable are the headlamps that comprise twin individual lights with chrome bezels, clear lenses and integrated indicators. These lights now comprise xenon bulbs for dip beam and halogen bulbs for full beam.

The 6.75-liter V8 engine that powers every Arnage was effectively redesigned from the ground up, featuring twin-turbocharging and record-breaking torque figures.

The Arnage R and RL continue in their roles as the personification of refined, four door luxury. Powered by a 400bhp version of the twin turbo V8 boasting 616lb ft of torque, they represent the ultimate expression of the iron fist in the velvet glove. Effortlessly, they will pass 60mph in 6 seconds flat and continue to accelerate until the engine management gently reins them back at 155mph.

The Arnage T is the powerhouse of the range, an unforgettable driving experience and the 21st century personification of the tidal wave on wheels, a phrase first coined to describe a Bentley Turbo over 20 years ago.

At its disposal is the ultimate development of the twin-turbo V8, an engine noted for its 450bhp output but distinguished by its astonishing 645lb ft of torque. It endows the Arnage T with the ability to reach 60mph from rest in 5.5 seconds and a top speed of 168mph - this from a car capable of carrying four adults and their luggage in traditional Grand Touring style.
