Off late we had been hearing of Bentley’s plans of coming up with a new Arnage replacement for the next generation. And the world got it’s first teaser some time back. The new car is believed to be priced higher than the current model. Now, this might prove to be a threat to the Phantom.
Bentley’s rep was heard saying that the price of the new Arnage will ensure exclusivity for the buyers. We don’t have any doubts about the ‘unique-ness’ of the car, even the name of which is being kept so hush-hush. The grand debut is slated for August at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. The project even has a code name, ‘Kimberly’. Indsiders reveal that it even has its own V8 powertrain which sends the drive to the rear wheels via ZF’s new 8-speed automatic.
We are expecting to see some form of forced induction too but we do not know if it will be supercharged or twin turbocharged. Again, a new diesel engine might be on the cards as well though a petrol version has a better chance. The car body will mostly be aluminum.
