The Arnage T laid claim to the title of world's fastest saloon in 2002, propelling the driver, in total luxury to a top speed of 170mph. Powered by a 6.75 litre twin turbo version of the Rolls-Royce, V8 engine, the nearly three-ton car could accelerate from 0-60mph in just 5.5 seconds. 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 excellent Bentley Arnage T was purchased new by our vendor in May 2002 from Broughtons of Surrey and has only covered 26,967 miles. Finished in Black Sapphire (which is very dark blue metallic) with Cotswold leather interior, complemented by Nautic Blue carpets and Nautic Blue ‘B’ wing motifs to the seat faces. This Arnage T is supplied with a V5C registration document, an MoT test certificate which expires in April 2024, telephone, a pair of Bentley umbrellas in the boot, a full service history from the main dealer and invoices from the Bentley specialists who looked after the car. Overall, this Bentley Arnage T is a highly desirable luxury car that offers both power and comfort in equal measure. Whether you are looking for a stylish and elegant daily driver or a high-performance sportscar, the Arnage T is a great choice that is sure to turn heads wherever you go.
