|Odometer reading||35,068 miles|
|Estimate||£22,000 - £26,000|
|Result||Sold - £25,200|
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.
Originally registered on 29th April, 2002, this Bentley has only covered 35,068 miles and presents in delightful condition. The Silver Storm paintwork is in unmarked condition and the black leather trim is in very good order. The diamond pattern seat stitching and engine turned polished dashboard, together with the walnut veneers make this a passenger area that is an extremely aesthetically pleasing to the eye. An Arnage T is a superb vehicle to drive with seemingly endless power under your right foot. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 15th March 2018 and supplied with a good service history this Bentley offers exceptional value for money.
