Some sources inside Bentley say that a prototype of the Arnage is made with the W16 engine from the Bugatti Veyron under the hood. The sources say that they want to produce a Bentley that can be positioned above the Continental Flying Spur in the Bentley bhp-range.
Franz-Josef Paefgen, director of both Bentley as Bugatti, should be the man behind the dream. The current Arnage produces 500 bhp, the Flying Spur is powered with 560 bhp.
Autowereld is wondering how the enormous W16 can be planted under the hood of an Arnage. But what’s sure is that the most powerful version of the new Bentley Arnage will have between 560 and 1001 bhp.
