2008 Bentley Arnage RL

The end of an era

In 1998 the Bentley Arnage was introduced as replacement for the old Bentley Brooklands and Bentley Turbo R. In 2005 a major facelift was introdued. For the 2007 model year, the Garrett turbocharges were replaced with low-inertia Mitsubishi units designed to improve engine response. The engine was mated to a six speed ZF transmission, also found in the Bentley Continental GT range. Also, the displacement of the engine was increased from 6,750 cc to 6,761 cc. The new power output for the Arnage R was 456 horsepower and an incredible 875 Nm of torque. The maximum speed was quoted at 270 km/h. In September 2008, Bentley announced that the Arnage production would cease in 2009.
