Bentley Carnage, a full size luxury car, is a link between the supercharged cars of the yesteryears and the turbocharged models of today. One of the most powerful cars in the world, it is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission benefiting performance, driving dynamics and refinement. The car has subtle exterior, impressive interior and under-bonnet design cues.
Design and Interior
A British luxury sedan, Bentley Arnage is loaded with creature comforts and copious amounts of wood and leather. Modern touches like reclining rear seats, tri-zone climate control, DVD navigation, Bluetooth and Park Assist have been given to the car. The car has bespoke options like special colors, materials, wheels, badging and entertainment systems.
Elements like sleek wood veneers, shimmering chrome, finest leather upholstery and plush wool carpeting make the interiors of the car luxurious. The RL model has some extras. However, it must be accepted that the car lacks the newer engineering, driving dynamics and higher levels of posh and prestige of its Rolls-Royce and Maybach.
Variants and Price
Bentley Arnage is available in three variants: the regular Arnage R, the stretched-wheelbase Arnage RL and higher-performance Arnage T. It is available in the price range of $224,990 - $270,990.
Bentley cars are powered by venerable 6.75-liter V8, twin-turbocharged to produce massive power. Engine of Arnage T produces 500 horsepower and an Earth-shaking 738 pound-feet of torque. With power flowing to the rear wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission, the Arnage T is capable of zero to 60 mph in 5.2 seconds.
The car has micro-alloy ventilated discs which are complemented by six additional braking and traction systems for supreme control under all conditions. Other safety features include ABS, hydraulic brake assist and the ASR traction control system, the Electronic Stability Programme (ESP), Electronic Brake Pressure Distribution, and an MSR engine drag torque control.
