2009 Bentley Arnage Final Series: this time they mean it
The Bentley Arnage Final Series is both a message and a messenger. The message is quite simple: we are tired of and are retiring the car that topped Bentley’s model range for the last decade.
After the Final Series is sold out, the super-luxury sedan will be discontinued and will soon be replaced with its ultra-luxury successor, which will have the Rolls-Royce Phantom in its cross-hairs.
The Bentley Arnage Final Series will be motivated by a twin-turbocharged 6.75-liter V8 engine.
Updated exactly two years ago, the powerplant produces a maximum of 500hp of power and enormous 1000Nm (738lb-ft) of torque, which is more than enough to guarantee an ‘adequate’ acceleration time for such a heavy vehicle (the Arnage has a curb weight of more than 2.5 metric tones).
Inside, those lucky ones will find usual for this class of vehicles luxury interior that includes such daily amenities of life as a rear cocktail cabinet with a Final Series stainless steel flask and two shot glasses, as well as our Bentley umbrellas mounted in the trunk.
Only 150 copies of the car will be manufactured, Bentley says in its press release.
