|Odometer reading||24,252 miles|

- Unmarked condition
- A well serviced low mileage 451bhp example
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.
Originally registered on 27th January 2006 this Bentley was supplied by Straight Eight in Hampshire. Finished in the great colour combination of Tungsten with Beluga interior, this Arnage T has a combination of engine turned aluminium and walnut interior. The interior is rich with leather, chrome dials and gadgets. The exterior is subtly understated. These are exceptional vehicles to drive and FM55 NFE with its 451bhp output engine is no exception, combining the comfort from such a luxurious marque and performance which is quite breathtaking bearing in mind the size of the car.
The interior is rich with leather, chrome dials and gadgets. The exterior is subtly understated. Supplied with a V5 registration document together with a current MoT test certificate and a well stamped service book, confirming the low mileage of just 24,252. This unmarked example offers exceptional value for money.
