Bentley will replace the current Arnage with an all-new design in about two years’ time. The future Arnage will feature a version of Audi’s spaceframe chassis and will be around 150 kg lighter.
The new Arnage will continue to have the unique proportions of the current model, particularly the traditional high roof and seating position, that give the car its "soul".
Rumors about Bentley going diesel or hybrid has been denied by Bentley chairman Franz-Josef Paefgen: "We have the technology to do a diesel right now," said Paefgen, "but whether we do it really depends on how successful VW, Mercedes and others are at normalising diesel sales in the US. Bentley could never lead the field in that area. You could only ever respond to a strong demand."
A recently Arnage prototype has been powered by the 987bhp Bugatti W16 engine.
