The Arnage T can lay claim to the title of world's fastest saloon, needing all but the last two spots on its 170mph speedometer. It is powered by another version of the 6.75 litre Rolls-Royce, V8 engine but treated to what Bentley described as 'the most thorough re-engineering of its life'. Other changes included the adoption of a 'drive-by-wire' throttle to go hand-in-glove with Bosch's Electronic Stability Program which replaced the Red Label's traction control but what really gives this nearly three-ton car its immense poise is a revised suspension that features 57% more roll stiffness than the Red Label. The car's basic structure is also 10% stiffer which means there are no creaks and squeaks of the sort that distinguished previous generations of Bentleys.
Perennially popular, this 2003 model is finished in pearlescent Fountain Blue with a Nautic Blue quilted leather interior throughout as well as Nautic Top Roll with Nautic Underside, Nautic Blue carpeting with lambswool overugs, Nautic Blue leather headlining and 'Flying B' embossed seats with diamond fluted leather door panels. The front seats and steering column are fully adjustable with multiple memories and there is individual climate control and factory satellite navigation. Fully alarmed and immobilised, the interior also benefits from a six cd Alpine stereo. She sits astride 19" split-rim alloy wheels and represents a superb example. THe service history is reassuringly Bentley throughout and has just been serviced by the Crew firm. Complete with a 12 month MoT test certificate, this epitome of British luxury is competitively priced and represents enormous kerbside appeal.
