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.

Breathtaking!

Vehicle: 2001 Bentley Arnage

I quit keeping track in 1989 but, at that point I had owned over 160 cars. Nothing even comes close in quality, curb appeal, performance, unabashed good looks, handling, design, ride quality, even the smell of this car (including Rolls-Royce). Everywhere you go people will compliment and envy you in this automobile. Most can't even tell what it is! I currently own 4 Porsches , Ferrari Maranello, a Vintage XKE and 6 other American muscle cars but can't wait to drive this car at every opportunity. It simply takes your breath away. It's the 2nd one I've purchased. The dealer is 'proud' of his parts and will ding you unmercifully but, it's the price you pay to drive the Best Car On The Planet.




The ultimate luxury car

I drive this car for fun in nice weather, and I absolutely love it. Not many cars even come close to the superiority of this Bentley.




Bentley may be best &

Vehicle: 2001 Bentley Arnage

The car is a living room with jet enginelike performance with a ride and handling as if on rails. Simply the most elegant automobile currently on the planet; and it is all hand built too. The "last" of the truly handmade, one of a kind (each) English motorcars! Amazing; and all this for the price of a small, well located summer home. Imagine!
