The 1998 Bentley Arnage is a luxury car that was introduced as a successor to the Bentley Turbo R and the Bentley Brooklands. It was the first new Bentley model to be introduced after the company was acquired by Volkswagen Group in 1998. The car was designed and developed in partnership with Rolls-Royce, which was also acquired by Volkswagen Group at the same time.
The Bentley Arnage was available in two versions, the Arnage Green Label and the Arnage Red Label. The Green Label was powered by a 4.4-liter BMW V8 engine, while the Red Label was powered by a 6.75-liter Rolls-Royce V8 engine. The Red Label was also equipped with a Garrett turbocharger, which boosted the power output to 400 horsepower and 616 lb-ft of torque.
The car featured a classic Bentley design with a long hood, a wide grille, and rounded headlights. The interior was luxurious, with leather upholstery, wood trim, and a range of modern amenities, such as a premium sound system and climate control.
The Arnage was also equipped with advanced safety features, such as anti-lock brakes, traction control, and dual front airbags. It also had an advanced suspension system that provided a comfortable ride while still maintaining precise handling.
The 1998 Bentley Arnage was well-received by critics and customers alike, with many praising its powerful engines, comfortable ride, and luxurious interior. It helped to establish Bentley as a major player in the luxury car market and set the stage for future models.
