Review of the 2002 Bentley Arnage

  • Although the Arnage is supremely capable, you could save $100,000 and get an even more capable BMW 7 Series or Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Powerful engine choices, sumptuous cabin environments, can be personalized to your taste from the factory, effectively impresses the neighbors.

  • Cons

    Costs more than a house, guzzles petrol, still lacks the technology found in far less expensive Benzes and Bimmers.

  • What's New for 2002

    Bentley introduced the high-performance Arnage T model at the 2002 North American International Auto Show. The T is to Bentley as R is to Jaguar or M is to BMW, and this special Arnage makes 450 horsepower and 645 pound-feet of twisting force. To help deal with this onslaught of power, engineers added a rear antiroll bar and a thicker antiroll bar in front, and firmed up the spring rates in the front. Standard equipment includes an electronic stability program (the first ever to appear in a Bentley vehicle); side curtain and chest airbags; a DVD-based navigation system and Park Distance Control. The "lesser" Red Label sedan reaps a $5,000 increase in its base price but is otherwise unchanged -- if you're lucky, you might be able to come by one of the special-edition Le Mans models released in 2001. Later in 2002, a thoroughly reworked Arnage R, introduced at the 2002 Geneva Motor Show, will replace the Red Label. The R picks up all of the modern safety equipment in the Arnage T, as well as suspension modifications and a recalibrated version of the latter's twin-turbo engine -- trading off some of the power for added refinement.

Vehicle: 2002 Bentley Arnage Red Label 4dr Sedan (6.8L 8cyl Turbo 4A)

I have owned my Red Label for no more than a week and I must say that I have never driven a saloon anywhere near this quality. I though the S600 was nice but this, this is very very nice. I will be looking into purchasing another for my wife, since she always wants to drive mine now.




Great car

Vehicle: 2002 Bentley Arnage Red Label 4dr Sedan (6.8L 8cyl Turbo 4A)

This is an excellent car. I have just bought the Red Label and i think that even though it has a very high price tag, it is much better and roomier in the back than my 2001 S-Class. It is a lovely car...
