Product Overview

Bentley Arnage facelift is full-size ultra-luxury sedan in production from 2006 to 2009. It is available with a V8 engine that displaces 6.75L that traces its heritage back decades.
While the original Arnage came with an NA BMW V8 engine (M62) at first and two single-turbo Rolls-Royce Bentley OHV engines, the facelifted Arnage features a bi-turbo setup that was becoming popular in the industry around the mid-2000s. Another key update is the new ZF 6HP transmission, which replaced the GM 4L80E.
With a 19.5L/100km (12.1mpg) fuel "dis-economy", owners have to be prepared to pay for their "smiles-per-mile".
