West Coast Classics are proud to present an absolutely stunning and exceptional example of this original owner 2006 Bentley Arnage T 6.75L Twin Turbocharged V8 Sedan and a superb hand built Crewe Bentley with an original window sticker of over $240K but with this particular car being fully loaded with factory & dealer added options resulting in a final window sticker in far excess of this price!
This particular example was specially factory ordered with the following options:
6.8L V-8 Engine 4-spd auto w/OD Transmission Rear-wheel drive type ABS and driveline Traction control Front air conditioning, dual zone automatic Rear air conditioning, with separate controls Driver and front passenger heated-cushion, heated-seatback heated front seats AM/FM stereo, seek-scan Radio Keyfob (all doors) remote keyless entry Heated mirrors Leather seat trim Driver and passenger lumbar support DVD/Navigation system CD Changer Parking assist
'Beluga Black' paint Black Diamond Pattern Leather interior 19" Alloy Wheels Burr Oak Veneer Rear Seat Cushion Ice Box Storage (Veneer Trimmed) Veneered Picnic Tables to rear of front seats Veneered Panels to all front doors "No expense spared" sound system
This particular pristine Arnage T is extraordinarily handsome in its original factory 'Beluga Black' color paint with a beautiful matching all 'Black' premium leather interior with diamond quilted inserts. This is a well documented single previous owner car since new which was originally purchased and always primarily serviced at the renown 'Braman Miami', The Bentley dealership of Miami, FL when at the owners Miami Beach,FL residence and also at 'Rusnak Rolls Royce Motors Cars' of Pasadena, CA, when at the owner's Los Angeles residence. Obviously always garaged with no accidents or damage history and a clean CARFAX report. It was obviously owned by only one very careful and meticulous owner/driver since new - never abused!
The Arnage is named after a famous racing corner at Le Mans, the circuit of legendary Bentley fame, thanks to 5 victories in the famous 24-hour race, including a string of four straight. Never mind that the last of these victories occurred in 1930; the mystique endures! The T stands for twin-turbocharged - a pair of Garrett T3 blowers replacing the bigger T4 singleton previously employed. The new force-feeding arrangement, plus a nearly total overhaul of the aluminum V-8 engine, conspire to make this big sedan the fastest four-door car Bentley had ever made. Thanks to the self-imposed 155-mph top-speed limiters on most high-end Euro sedans, it was also the fastest four-door sedan in the world (168 mph), the first Bentley designed entirely on a computer, and the first Bentley engine built essentially with VW's toolbox. Rated at 500 horsepower and 646 pound-feet of torque, the pushrod Bentley V-8 makes a lot of highly respected DOHC four-valve engines look a little tame. Bentley has been turbocharging its 6.8-liter pushrod V-8 engines since 1982, but this is a thoroughly revamped 6.8, and it packs a thoroughly modern big-league punch.
It turns out that the Bentley Arnage (built between the years 1998-2009 before being replaced by the new Bentley Mulsanne) brings you two particular things so characteristic of England. First, it's exclusive and second, stubborn British craftsmen with incredible pride build the Arnage by hand in the legendary Crewe plant, and this gives the car something approaching a soul and it's twin turbos in this later 2007 model help deliver 500 horsepower at 4,100 rpm, but the crucial ingredient is torque, a staggering 646 pound-feet at just 1,800 rpm. Perhaps it seems unseemly to speak in terms of crude measurements of performance like acceleration to 60 mph, yet we'll tell you the Arnage completes the task in 5.6 seconds and will whistle all the way to 168 mph, extraordinary performance for a vehicle of this size and weight.
The uniquely designed ultimate incarnation of the Arnage was the named the Arnage T and referred to by enthusiasts as the 'Arnage Black Label', built by Bentley to be the ultimate sporting sedan and quite simply fastest production sedan in the world. It was built between the years 2002-2009, with only 2,100 cars built in total. It is noteworthy that in 2007 alone only 211 cars were built with only 130 being LHD models.
This particular car was serviced most recently at 12,050 miles at 'Rusnak Rolls Royce Motor Cars' of Pasadena, CA where it received a multi-point inspection for turn key ready driving for its next owner. You will surely look long and hard to find a finer example of this Crewe hand built 2006 Bentley Arnage T with an extraordinarily low 12,883 original miles which was always dealer maintained since new & which is fully loaded with rare and desirable added options such a rear fridge compartment, cocktail compartments in both seat backs, picnic tables, DVD, chrome gauges, Diamond quilted pattern leather etc, etc! It is also of note that the car was previously owned by a world renown recording artist and DJ and boasts a "no expense spared' sound system.
For those who are unfamiliar, Rolls Royce and Bentley no longer exist as they had for over one hundred years - this is one of the last in the original line of cars hand built in the legendary Rolls Royce/Bentley factory in Crewe, England with a quality and craftsmanship that far surpasses that of today's mass produced models with many BMW parts - this is a rare opportunity to own a piece of automobile history, from a time when Rolls Royce and Bentley were truly building the world's finest motor cars.
