West Coast Classics are proud to present an absolutely stunning and exceptional example of this 2007 Bentley Arnage T 6.75L Twin Turbocharged V8 Sedan and a superb hand built Crewe Bentley with an original window sticker of $242K but with this particular car being fully loaded with factory options resulting in a final window sticker of over $269K in 2007!
This particular example was specially factory ordered with the following options:
Dark Sapphire Color Paint Magnolia Leather interior 19" 5-Spoke Alloy Wheels $2,690 Burr Oak Veneer $2,690 Wood & Leather Steering Wheel (Straight Grained) $2,390 Rear Seat Cushion Box Storage (Veneer Trimmed) $4,190 3D Bentley Mascot $3,190 Veneered Picnic Tables to rear of front seats $2,090 Veneered Panels to all front doors $1,190 Lambswool rugs in addition to carpet overmats $790
This particular pristine Arnage T is extraordinarily handsome in its original factory 'Dark Sapphire' color with a beautiful 'Magnolia' premium leather interior with diamond quilted inserts. This is a well documented 3 owner car since new always primarily serviced at the renown 'British Motor Cars Distributors', The Bentley, Lamborghini & Pagani dealership of San Francisco, CA and which has obviously always been garaged with no accidents or damage history and a clean CARFAX report. It was obviously owned by only very careful and meticulous drivers 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 and with the final incarnation of the 2007-2009 years being the most sought after by collectors today. It is noteworthy that in 2007 only 211 cars were built with only 130 being LHD models.
You will surely look long and hard to find a finer example of this Crewe hand built 2007 Bentley Arnage T with an extraordinarily low 7,521 original miles which was always dealer maintained since new! 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.
