high end - sedan
Being known as one of the worlds best makes it difficult to make products even better, but that doesn’t seem to be a challenge for Bentley. After some minor headlamp reconstruction and a new rear this new Bentley is sure to live up to its high standards. Starting from the bottom this new Arnage features some conventional front air ducts, which help to cool the monstrous Bentley engine. Added to the front bumper are some new fog lamps which seem to do the job they were intended to but do seem quite small to make any real impact on the design of the front end. Up from the bumper are the new headlamps, featuring a dual lamp look, which seems to add a Volkswagen feel to the front end.
Along with the Volkswagen feel, the new headlamps also seem to be a little cheap looking compared to that of previous Bentley models of the past. Next to the headlamps is the most prestigious item situated on the front, the Bentley grille, which is designed perfectly to suit the Bentley name. The grille also features that of past Bentley’s where the grille has always stood out from the front of the car. From the side of the grille are the beautifully designed hood lines, which follow up from the side of the grille up to the windshield adding another past favorite to this model. Bentley has added a nice bodyline to the side of the Arnage that creates the feeling that there should be something more on the side like wood paneling or a separate colour code for that area.
On the bottom are luxurious but plain looking rims which seem to suit the Bentley name but are made out of the wrong material. Rims on a Bentley should stand out from the car as chrome or steel rim rather than the cheap aluminum look on the Arnage. Around the windows is a chrome strip that lines the side of all the windows and adds a distinct glare from a very noticeable distance. One bad feature on the side are the small and slender side mirrors that seem to disappear in the sunlight. Along the side of the car, a nicely featured chrome strip encompasses the entire bottom of the car giving it that more prestigious look. Bentley has added another past favorite to the rear of the car with the tail fin styling of its past models. At the end of the tail fins are the oddly shaped taillights that really suit this Bentley and only this Bentley. The trunk of the Arnage features a borrowed look of a BMW 7-Series with its oddly shaped ducktail design that actually looks good on the Arnage. A nicely styled license plate spot has been added to the rear of the Arnage but it does pose a bad feature with its side lights that really stand out from everything else on the back of the car. The last feature on the rear is the exhaust ports, which seem to disappear in the sun and give the illusion that the Arnage has no rear bumper. With its most prestigious look and powerful engine, the new Arnage is certainly one welcomed change to the prestige marketplace.
