Lot 212 - 2007 Bentley Arnage T Mulliner II
|Odometer reading||37,000 miles|
|Estimate||£38,000 - £46,000|
- Post 2007, 500bhp Phase II Facelift
- 60mph in 5.2 seconds
Not only is the Arnage T more expensive and more powerful than its predecessors, the Arnage Green and Red Label models, but it also claimed the title of world's fastest saloon, needing all but the last two spots on its 190mph speedometer. The Arnage T is powered by yet another version of the 6.75 litre Rolls-Royce, V8 engine whose roots go back to 1959. Treated to what Bentley described as 'the most thorough re-engineering of its life', the 2007 model year cars produced a staggering 500bhp and thus the most desirable example. This prodigious output, besides enabling this Bentley to reach 188 mph, also sent it from 0-60mph in 5.2 seconds. Other changes included the adoption of a 'drive-by-wire' throttle 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.
First registered on 27th March 2007, this stunning example of the post 2007 facelift Arnage, with the significant mechanical upgrade offering over 500bhp and a colossal 737lb of torque, is presented in Black Sapphire with a sumptuous cream leather trim. This example has had just two previous keepers and we are informed it has a full Bentley history with a recent service on the 20th April at 35,678 miles which included a brake fluid change important in a car that weighs 2,655kg and has 500bhp plus. Boasting a very low mileage, this collectable example is still one of the very best ways to travel either behind the wheel or being driven in luxury. Viewing is highly recommended for what is the ultimate incarnation of the Arnage that has 13 stamps in the service book all from Bentley main agents.
