How to Pull a Bentley Arnage T Out the Garage

By: CJ Carter

Some prefer mind blowing speed. Others want to be coddled in luxury. If you prefer the latter then maybe the Bentley Arnage is for you. The Arnage is quick and classy, with a ferocious V8 engine.

The Arnage is sold in three different variations. The trims seem to cater to different personalities. The twin turbocharged Arnage T seems to be performance based. The Arnage R is aimed at those who are luxury oriented. Finally the Arnage RL is for those that want to show up big on the scene with it's slightly longer wheelbase. All three of the vehicles have 6.75 liter V8 engines that pump out 450 horse power with the exception of the Arnage T. It generates 500 horse power.

A modern, smoother shifting six speed automatic transmission replaces the antiquated four speed gearbox within the Arnage. Although most wouldn't consider an Arnage driver quite sporty, the car does have a manual shift function. The electronic stability program has been revised to give the driver a little bit more freedom before being encumbered by the computer. In the event that the driver is losing control of the car, the vehicle with intervene with brake and throttle control.

Powerful engines plus sophisticated suspension equal one badass sports car. But wait we're not talking about a sports car. We're talking about a luxury car which weights almost three tons. Although, it's fair to say, that Bentley has been known as being a driver's car. With the R and RL models clearly being more yacht then car, we turn our attention to the performance minded Arnage T. The Arnage T has a firmer suspension, larger rims, and performance tires. Besides that, the stability control system can be switched on and off, although I've never seen a Bentley sedan drift through a turn.

The Arnage is one hell of a car. It's one hell of investment. But above all else it's one hell of an experience.
