According to a review by Phil Llewellin in the April, 2009 issue of Automobile Magazine, “There’s a new lord and master among Bentley’s Arnage mega-sedans. Not only is the Arnage T more expensive and more powerful than the Arnage Green Label and Red Label models, but it also claims the title of world’s fastest sedan, as it needs all but the last two spots on its 170-mph speedometer. The Bentley Arnage T is powered by yet another version of ye olde 6.75-liter pushrod V-8, whose roots go back to 1959. Treated to what Bentley describes as ‘the most thorough re-engineering of its life’, it produces 450 horsepower and a stupendous 645 pound-feet of torque (as compared with 400 horsepower and 619 pound-feet in the Arnage Red Label). This prodigious output, besides enabling the English-manor-house-on-wheels to reach 168 mph, also will send it from 0 to 60 mph in 5.5 seconds and to 100 mph a mere eight seconds later. The engine’s most significant change is the switch from a single turbocharger to one for each bank of cylinders. This makes the engine more responsive in most situations, because the smaller turbos spool up faster. Other changes include the adoption of a ‘drive-by-wire’ throttle, which goes hand-in-glove with Bosch’s Electronic Stability Program, in place of the Red Label’s traction control. A subtle rear spoiler at the trunk lid’s trailing edge also enhances high-speed stability, but what really gives this nearly three-ton automobile its immense poise is a revised suspension that features 57 percent more roll stiffness than the Red Label. The car’s basic structure also is 10 percent stiffer, which means there are no creaks and squeaks of the sort that distinguished previous generations of Bentleys. Our only real quibble–this despite the twin turbos–is the slight but irritating delay that’s experienced when the power train gets the message to go from trickle to charge. The Bentley pauses, as if considering how best to respond to the spur . . . and then you’re away. After that, tapping the mighty V-8’s vast reservoir of mid-range torque requires little more than telepathy.”

Finance rates as low as 5.9%.
We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.
We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.
Terms available up to 144 Months

Daniel Schmitt & Company has described the above-mentioned vehicle to the best of our ability. However, as with all pre-owned automobiles, the condition is subjective, and we recommend that the potential buyer fly out to inspect, as well as test drive any of our vehicles before finalizing their purchase. If it is not feasible for you to personally perform an inspection, we will gladly help facilitate an inspection by an independent service center of your choice and will make delivery arrangements of the vehicle for this purpose. All vehicles are sold in “AS IS” condition. Extended warranty options are available on most vehicles. Please be advised that no verbal statements concerning any vehicle constitutes a representation or warranty of said vehicle. Our goal is to provide you with the best service and buying experience as possible. All purchases include an additional $385 processing fee which covers the processing of paperwork, pre-vehicle delivery costs, FedEx shipping fees, and a 30-day temporary registration plate so that the vehicle can be driven prior to the title transfer. (ATTENTION INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: Please be aware that you will be responsible for the Federal Reserve fee(s) charged for all incoming wires).
In regards to winning bidders and Buy It Now customers: All winning bidders and Buy It Now bidders are encouraged to fly out and personally inspect the vehicle. If you deem the vehicle is not as represented upon personal inspection, we will not only refund your deposit, but will also reimburse your airfare at the cost of a coach ticket. Feedback must be left at the time of delivery upon final inspection.
Pertaining to non-eBay winners: Anyone who has provided a deposit but whose purchase is still pending, please note that said vehicle will not be held and is subject to being sold at any time until all contingencies are removed and the purchase order is signed.
The advertised mileage represents the actual miles when the car was posted online. These vehicles are test-driven and actual mileage may vary at the time of sale.
All used vehicles should be assumed to have some degree of wear. We do not manufacture our product. Each vehicle’s brand has its strengths, styles, tendencies, and shortcomings. Despite our best efforts to verify a vehicle’s mechanical condition, we are not able to warranty a manufacturer’s workmanship or a previous owner’s diligence in care of said vehicle. Due to this reason, all vehicles are sold “AS IS”. There are no mechanical guarantees, expressed or implied.
Daniel Schmitt & Co. reserves the right to end the auction at any time.
