Bentley Arnage Sales Figures

Bentley Arnage Sales Data & Trends

The Bentley Arnage was a long-lived model that helped to take Bentley into a new era. The new Bentley Arnage and Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph of 1998 shared essentially the same bodyshells (following the trend of their predecessors), with their radiator grilles and bonnet pressings being the only major bodywork differences. But it was under those bonnets where the contrasts were greatest, despite both cars featuring BMW-supplied powerplants – a 5.4-litre V12 in the case of the Rolls-Royce, while the Bentley sported a 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8.

Bentley carried out numerous improvements throughout the Arnage’s eleven-year career, adding extra models along the way. The extended-wheelbase Arnage RL (measuring 9.8 inches more than the standard model) arrived in 2001, bringing with it a thorough reworking of the L-series V8 – now featuring Bosch engine management and twin Garrett T3 turbochargers in place of the single T4. The Arnage R (to replace the Red Label) and more powerful Arnage T arrived in 2002, employing the same updated engine but with the T tuned to produce 450bhp (making it the most powerful Bentley of its time) to the R’s 399bhp.
