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 11th October 2004, this Arnage T is finished in the desirable colour combination of Silver Storm with Cotswold leather trim and also benefits from a sports combination package (Level two) and a sunroof. The interior dashboard is in burr oak veneer and a wood & leather steering wheel is also fitted. Lower front wing vents continue the sporty theme of this Bentley together with the quad exhaust pipes. Supplied with a V5C registration document together with a current MoT test certificate and the original service books, Bentley Arnage’s are fast becoming recognized as an outstanding car to drive offering superb value for money, this 451 bhp example is no exception.
