Yep, Bentley is on a roll. After Continental GT in 2003, the Flying Spur in 2005 and the new Azure and Continental GTC in '06, now we have a refreshed 2007-model year Arnage. It's not an all-new car, but there are some significant changes and a promise that this is a 'true driver's car'.
Don’t let the looks deceive you. Under the virtually unchanged skin lie some serious mechanical changes. Firstly, the ponderous and frankly awful 4-speed automatic gearbox has been tossed and replaced with a much more responsive six-speed ZF ‘box. This new transmission not only offers two more gears, but also three modes (Sport, Drive and Semi-Automatic) and a far more intuitive manual shift option. Still no steering wheel mounted shift paddles though…

RE: Bentley Arnage T (2006) CAR review
There is only one way to sum up a Bentley and that is no car can be compared to it. If anything can be compared with it then its a Challenger 2 Tank and that's only if the tank has got some sort of veneer or leather luxury inside, which i doubt it does. Its a car that can be parked in a council estate with peace of mind that youthful thugs will give it the respect it commands whereas if it was a Rolls-Royce i think a hooligan paint job wouldn't go a miss with the youths, who think the owner is showing off. Sadly... i personally feel i cannot say the same about the Continental GT or Flying Spur, which i cannot regard as proper true Bentley's, because they look too much like a VW inspired job with that W engine rather than a slab faced Bentely with a proper 6 3/4 litre V8 engine designed to take on concrete walls and come out the other end still wanting a fight.
