2002 Bentley State Limousine

2002 Bentley State Limousine

The Queen of England may not have the power that she once had, but she certainly remains a powerful figure in the hearts of all British folks. On June 2, 2012 the Queen celebrated her 60th year on the throne, which brought about a celebration dubbed the Diamond Jubilee – “Diamond” indicates 60 years, for those wondering.

In the festivities, the Queen was spotted riding around in a rather luxurious automobile that one of our readers keenly pointed out is either a Rolls-Royce or Bentley, and he turned to us for help identifying the car and telling him a little about it. Figuring he is not the only person interested in the topic, we felt that a full-on review was in order.

As it turns out, after a good amount of research, we have found out that the queen traveled around in the Jubilee in a 2002 Bentley State Limousine. This is no typical Bentley limo either, as it is fit for a… Well, Queen, of course!

Future Bentley Arnarge spied testing

Future Bentley Arnarge spied testing

After being teased automotive enthusiasts from around the globe over and over again, the nest generation Bentley Arnage has been caught testing. The vehicle’s official debut will be made at the world’s greatest car show, the 2009 Concours D’Elegance in Pebble Beach, California, on August 16th.

The new Arnage was internally known as the Project Kimberley and will be almost a foot longer than the current model. Aside from the change in length, the new Arnage will feature a redesigned front bumper, new rear fascia as well as a new set of shiny tailpipes.

Under the hood the English coach builder will use a gas burning 6.75 Liter V8 engine that will deliver 550 HP and up to 750 lb-ft of torque. So even if the new Arnage tips the scales at over 5000 pounds, this new Bentley will have enough brute force under the bonnet to keep up with much less luxurious sports cars in a straight line.

New Bentley Arnage spied undisguised

It’s true that the British coach builderkeeps teasing us with the "New Bentley", but the Arnage’s successor stood no chance against the spy photographers who caught it undisguised out of the company’s headquarters in Crewe, England.

Even if the car has no name yet, you can easily see its design is much more modern than the car it replaces. With this new model, Bentley has decided to deliver a big set of heads aches to Rolls Royce. The new Arnage will come with an imposing front end, made up of a pair of oversized chrome mesh with some rather large LED lit headlamps.

2010 Bentley Arnage to debut at Pebble Beach

Details about the next generation Bentley Arnage have been circulating around the Internet for quite a while now. Well, it is official that the luxury limousine will make its debut at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance this August and will go into production by he second half of 2010.

Codenamed Project Kimberly, the next Arnage will be built on Audi’s modular platform, the same structure that supports everything from the A4 to the A8. Under the hood there will be more than enough power coming from an 8 cylinder engine mated to a ZF 8 speed automatic transmission; there were also rumors floating around about a possible diesel V12.

There was even talk that the W16 from the Bugatti Veyron could find its way into the production Arnage. If that does happen, chances are that it will be under the hood of the top of the line, Arnage T. Despite the overwhelming weight of the big Bentley, it should be able to go from 0 to 60 MPH in under 5 seconds.

Future Bentley Arnage will get Audi's V12 diesel engine

Future Bentley Arnage will get Audi’s V12 diesel engine

Audi wants to get the most out of the diesel technology it developed for the now-defunct R10 Le Mans racer. It’s dropped the engine into the Euro-only Q7 V12 TDI and is possibly installing it into a version of the R8, but that still might not be enough. Now Audi is rumored to be loaning the engine to its upper-class cousin for the next generation of the Bentley Arnage.

At this point nothing surprises us from Bentley. The company has been long-rumored to be considering diesel technology, and its engine choices have been anything but conventional. It’s even been rumored that Bentley has tried to stuff the W16 engine from the Bugatti Veyron into the next Arnage.

2009 Bentley Arnage Final Series

Bentley revealed the first Arnage back in 1998. After a long and successful story the model has come to an end. To celebrate the end of its life the company will unveil at the Paris Auto Show a limited edition Arnage. Called "Final Series", this special edition will be limited to only 150 units and will be produced at the Crewe facility.

The engine, transmission, chassis and running gear of the Arnage Final Series are identical to those previously employed in Arnage T. In this specification, Bentley’s remarkable all-aluminium 6.75 liter V8 engine produces 500 bhp and 738lb ft of torque.

Acceleration to 60 mph is accomplished in 5.2 seconds (0-100km/h in 5.5 secs) with 100 mph reached in 12.1 seconds. Top speed of the Final Series is 179 mph.

The six-speed ZF automatic transmission, first introduced for the 2007 model, ensures optimum flexibility, response and refinement. Three transmission modes (Drive, Sport and Semi-Automatic) allow the driver to take full advantage of the powerful 500 bhp V8 engine.

2010 Bentley Arnage renderings

2010 Bentley Arnage renderings

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.

New Bentley Arnage for 2010

New Bentley Arnage for 2010

Bentley is already working at the next generation Arnage that will be launched in 2010. A true Rolls-Royce beater, the 2010 Arnage will be priced at around £180,000 for the base version, and rise to in excess of £200,000 for the W16-engined Arnage T version.

The new Arnage will be even bigger than the model it’s set to replace. The increased length will ensure the new range-topper provides limousine levels of space inside. And for the first time ever, bosses are considering the possibility of using a diesel in the Arnage.

Also rumors say that the W16 engine from the Bugatti Veyron supercar is also under consideration for the big Bentley. It would be most suited to the range-topping Arnage T model, and have enough power to propel the four-door from 0-62mph in well under five seconds.

2002 Bentley Arnage T

Like strapping rocket boosters to a house

When you’re an automaker that’s nearly a century old, playing catch up isn’t always easy. The problem lies in mixing tradition with innovation, striking a balance between the things that brought success in the past, and the things that are required by the future. The full-size Arnage T sedan manages to find such an equilibrium, but it does so through somewhat shocking means. The essentials are all present and correct, with an abundance of class, style, and luxury permeating throughout. But along with these Bentley basics comes an unprecedented need for speed, courtesy of nearly 7 liters of displacement, two turbochargers, and sporty suspension tuning. The result is an old-school throwback with modern bite.

Named after a corner at the Circuit de la Sarthe, home to the world-famous 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race, the Arnage arrived at a time of upheaval within Bentley. Anxiety over a buyout by Volkswagen left many wondering where the marque would head next, but the Arnage answered by becoming Bentley’s best-selling model.

At launch, the Arnage T was the first Bentley designed wholly by computer, and it was the first Bentley to use engine components from VW. These steps forward certainly had their benefit, though, as for a while, the Arnage T was not only the most powerful road-going four-door to bear a winged B, but it was also the fastest sedan in the world.

Essentially, the Arnage T mixes classic British luxury with contemporary expectations. Read on to see how it all played out.
