THE BENTLEY ARNAGE

Emphasizing its racing heritage, Bentley Motors unveiled the Arnage in April 1998 at Le Sarthe circuit, home of the Le Mans 24-Hour Race and scene of its greatest triumphs in the 1920s. Bentley, together with parent company Rolls-Royce Motors, was in collaboration with BMW at this time, and the Arnage was the first Bentley to benefit from the Munich firm's engine technology in the form of an all-new V8 power unit. However, Bentley's subsequent acquisition by Volkswagen resulted in a partial volte face, with the 'old' 6.75-liter OHV V8 being reintroduced on some models, beginning with the Arnage Red Label in 1999.

In March 2002, a heavily revised version - the Arnage R - was introduced at the Geneva Salon, replacing the Arnage Red Label. Gone was the original's single Garrett T4 turbocharger, which had been replaced by a pair of smaller T3s providing superior throttle response and higher catalytic converter temperatures for reduced emissions. Also new was the state-of-the-art Bosch Motronic engine management system. Maximum power was now 405bhp and the top speed 155mph (250km/h). Bentley claimed that over half the 6.75-liter V8 engine's parts were new.

The ultimate expression of this family, the Arnage T, arrived in 2002 and with 457bhp on tap was the most powerful road-going Bentley ever built at the time of its introduction. Bentley Motors claimed a 0-60mph (0-97km/h) time of 5.5 seconds and a top speed of 170mph (274km/h), which was some going for a full four-seater luxury saloon.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Completed at the original Crewe-based Bentley works, by hand, in October of 2003, this luxurious and powerful Bentley Arnage T was destined for the US market, and delivered to the first owner in Baldwin Park, CA just before the Holidays that same year. The CARFAX report on file attests to California state ownership since then, and just over 31,600 miles since new. In sinister Black over a biscuit-colored luxurious leather cabin, this timeless Bentley has led a pampered existence, and offers the next owner unparalleled luxury, elegance, and top performance.
