Which used Bentley Arnage saloon should I buy?

Launched in 1999, there's only one engine, but two power outputs. The entry-level R's powerplant has 'just' 400bhp, but bolt on a couple of turbochargers and you've got the flagship T model and 50bhp more.

As for the interior, there are 27 colours of leather to choose from, plus another 16 as secondary shades, and we've not even mentioned the numerous wood options yet. All this means it's unlikely you'll ever find two cars the same. If there's something missing that you'd really like, Bentley will be more than happy to accommodate your wishes. Bespoke craftsmen will create virtually anything for you, including hot and cold running water in one model we saw. Just don't expect it to be cheap.

The rarity of Bentleys means you're not going to find scores of second-hand Arnages at your local used showroom. Your best bet is the franchised dealer network or specialist dealers.
