The brand Bentley was well settled in the exclusive market of the Grand Touring Motor Cars with the saloons with four doors and the coupes with two doors produced by Bentley. There is no magnification in giving the statement that the Bentley Arnage T will set the criteria as a radical rendering of the very high performance saloon. Focusing clearly by providing more comfort in the month of March in year 2002, Arnage R from the house of Bentley was the latest inclusion to the so-called Series Two Arnage family of Bentley. Arnage R was debuted as the replacement of the Arnage Red Label at the Geneva Salon.
Anyone who is checking for important differences between the Arnage R and earlier models will surely notice addition of a Bosch Motronic ME7.1.1, also referred to as a fundamental modification in the Bentley line up. This system provided more than what’s usually described by the system of engine management. All the functions, which are expected from a state of art engine controller, were available, but the new level of control to large number of parameters resulted in direct influence on Electronic Stability Program. Hence, the safety of Arnage R advanced to a new level when compared to the control system of its predecessor.
Not even a single Garrett T4 turbocharger is applied on the Arnage Red Label except the Twin T3 Turbochargers. A turbocharger of less size will have the faster response time and low inertia. The additional changes were the close coupled catalytic converters, which are placed near the exhaust manifold heat up mainly to operating temperatures, thereby reducing the emissions. There are few alterations done to the body structure of the car such as the tougher mounts for the steering rack of the car.
Coming to the outward appearance of the car, the boot spoiler of the car is slightly turned up. The personal commissioning team of Bentley, for some time offered its customers to tailor the cars according to their private specifications. A very high percentage of Bentley cars impressed with their interiors of the cars matched the desires of their demanding clients.
The car has an engine with 8 cylinders and a 90 degree V configuration. The dimensions of Bore x Stroke is 4.1 inch x 3.9 inch. It has a displacement of 6,750 cc. From the 2007 model year the maximum torque of the car is 875 N-m. Maximum speed is 155 mph and the acceleration time is 6.2 seconds to rise to 60 mph from 0 mph.
