Bentley Arnage Le Mans

The 2001 Bentley Arnage Le Mans was launched seven weeks after the EXP Speed 8 Le Mans had been uneiled by Bentley Motors at the Detroit Motor Show. The interiors of these two show cars show the efforts made by the Bentley Motors Crewe-based craftsmen, integrating two colors: Autumn Hide for the main trim, with contrasting detail in English Tan. The Le Mans Series car is further distinguished by a large number of exquisite details, such as 18-inch Le Mans Series five spoke,sports wheels and chrome. Ensuring that the car's provenance is undoubted,the red brake callipers come to complete the subtle additions, along with special badges that designate the car as a Le Mans series model, and vents on the lower front wings. The Bentley Arnage Le Mans Series is powered by the V8 6.75-liter engine which delivers 400 bhp at 4,4000 rpm and 616 lb-ft of torque at 2,100 rpm. The Le Mans Series was developed by Bentley Motors as the company's executives aimed to maintain the company's unique sporting record and pride and the Le Mans Series Arnage reflected passion in a way that only Bentley cars could. Tony Gott, Chief Executive of Bentley Motors, stated at the launching ceremony, that seven weeks before, they had unveiled the most uncomfortable and noisiest Bentley ever made at the Detroit Auto Show,the EXP Speed 8. The car drank fuel at a rate that made the most thirsty four by four sports utility seemed like it was on an economy run. He also added that Bentley was going back to its roots with a race car of which W O himself would have been proudly delighted. It is no doubt that the Le Mans Series Arnage proudly wears the genes of those race winners in its every aspect.
