The Bentley Arnage T, with its top speed of 170mph, is the world’s fastest saloon in 2002, propelling the driver, in total luxury. The engine was treated to what Bentley described as 'the most thorough re-engineering of its life’ producing 451bhp and 645lb/ft of torque. 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.
This example was first registered on 1st September 2003 and is finished in impressive black coachwork with a stainless-steel grille and a matching black hide interior with diamond pattern stitching and embroidered Bentley motifs. A feature of the interior is the turned alloy dashboard and trimmings. Along with the V5 registration document and MoT test certificate valid until February 2023, the car is supplied with a book pack and a service record which is reassuringly stamped 16 times. This comprehensively optioned luxury saloon represents incredible value for money and a delightfully thrilling motoring experience.
