Discussion in '2002 Bentley Arnage T' started by ch1c4n3, Aug 9, 2002.

  1. datruesuperman, im glad i finally have some1 on my side, it was getting tedious arguing by myself
     
  2. i'm tired of poeple talking money and whta they an buy. they look at a 80k viper and compare it with some 100k car and say the 100k car is a rip off. if you buy a 80 k car you can buy a 100k car no problem.

    if we went through teh most economical way to create a fast car or what not we would go through an endless list of buying an older and older car and replacing part and hand fabricating parts yourself. in the end you'd probably end up building the car yourself for the sake of the arguement "my car beat yours and its cheaper"

    no one cars. bentley does have an illustrious history, and in racing as well. although bentley has not raced in many many years they marked their first retrun to lemans with a 1st place finish in one of their endurqnce car.

    have you seen the bentley hunaudieres. the car sports about 673 hp and 573lb/ft of torque. it utilizes space age aluminum frame design and has a mid mounted 8 litre W16 engine. it has underpinnings that is shared by the lamborhinig diablo and has a top speed of 217mph. it sports all wheel drive and in case your wondering hunaudieres is named after the straight at the Le Mans race circuit where Bentley claimed five victories between 1924 and 1930-and established its reputation. in addition to this being a bentley the engine is entire hand molded aluminum, with plenty of leather (all hand cut). in addition the car utilizes a unique series of camera connected to tv screens on the inside to monitor aft, behind and side angles to elminate the exterior mirror which gets in the way of aerodynamics. in addition here are no blindspots to this car. it produces about 85% of its torque at 1500 rpms and is completely quiet like a luxury car.

    piss on anyone who says bentley cannot create a fast car that has a exteremly luxurious interior.
     
  3. this car is awesome. its powerful, luxurious, and if you're in one you've got to be one happy, rich, and lucky person. if any1 called this a pile of shit they should take a test drive in one (although i doubt you could test drive one) and then call it a pile of shit. id say this is the fastest, best bentley ever. whoever said it was a pile of shit should start figuring out a punishment for themselves for saying something so stupid and ignorant about a car like this!












    I love Jennifer!!!!!!!!<IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">
     
  4. I don't get it... why do so many people take time to bash Bentley and Rolls-Royce? People are so bitter about things they can never afford and refuse to respect the people who do, because they're so jealous. That's why so many expensive cars get keyed. Anyway, these cars are great... they are expensive and thoroughly impractical but hey, who cares? Like the world's fat cats really want a petite Bentley.
     
  5. some of you are missing the fact that Bentleys are really rolls royces with turbo v8 engines, so its kind of ironic that a car usually bought on the basis of exclusivity is a clone. Just categorize it like this:

    if you have an income under $1,000,000, then its an absolute waste of money,

    but if you have an income over $1,000,000, then its the best buy there is.<!-- Signature -->

    As stated elsewhere - Those who must PROVE they've made it, drive Rolls Royce. Those that don't, own Bentley.

    BTW: Perhaps you'd do better to spend less time worrying about what others do, and use the time to become a bit more adept at the art of conversation. Think about that!<!-- Signature -->
     
  8. Let me tell all the punk @$$ motha fvcka out there that think Bentley sux, Bently is a legendry car, get that into ur brains motha fvckas!
     
  9. ha a civic beat this thing never happen and the 60 times so slow as you said cause of the weight moved off the line, once it had a bit of pace on it these things move
     
  10. Bashing Bentlys?? How dare they!

    This car is a beautiful piece of car. Handbuilt to have pretty much whatever you want in it. They would probably make the interior out of jello if you asked for it. They dont care about quantity, but quality. For those talking about 0-60 times being slow, and your civic being able to beat it off the line, add about 2000 pounds to your civic and see how fast it goes then. If the bently weighed about thee same as your civic, it would eat it alive, but the cars not made to race, its made to be comfortable and safe so if the person gets into a wreck, he can livee to buy another bently ;)
     
  11. Just this week i watched Driven (UK car programme) and it had the Bentley T racing a Lotus Elise around a circuit... weird comparision i thought seeing as Lotus is my idea of a proper race car (being so small and light) that the lotus will KILL the bentley....

    errrr how wrong was i....the bentley beat the lotus off the line quite convincingly and was moving away from the lotus on all the straights. obviously the corners was where the lotus caught up, but the bentley still had the power to move away from the corners just in front. it was only on the final hairpin that the lotus over-took and won the race, by about 2 car lengths...
    ok, so it lost, but it performed damn well, and made me respect not only as a luxorious car it certainly, but also as a performance car.

    oh, and one more thing... PLEASE let me be there when anyone with a (insert ANY car make/model) compares torque with this car because this is the number one production car for torque....
     
  12. i think Bentlys are for rapers, million aires, and rich people who dont have anything else to do so they just buy a Bently. have yo ever thought thatsome peopledont know, nor care how much torqe or HP their car has they just want to look good and be comfortabale whn they drive down the raod?? and another thing, just because you cant aford one and they ar not the fastest car on earth, you dont have to dids it.<!-- Signature -->

    This car is 2.5 tons heavy. If it were to put in a head-on collision with a Volvo, you can pick the Volvo and I'll sit in the Bentley, let's see who survives the law of physics.

    And the thing about saving? That just means YOU will never be able to afford one. The average Bentley earns millions a year, WTF do they need "saving" for?
     
  16. 2 other facts,
    1. bentley is the fastest production 4 door sedan (believe me ive looked it up)

    2. bentley has the highest customer satisfaction rating in the world. now how about dem apples?
     
  17. I believe Bentley has one of if not the Best Customer Satisfaction record of all time.

    You can totally customize it to your exact specs and it can still be called a fully stock car (Bentleys are ment to leave with the customer, perfect).

    This is a Supercar. Give it the same respect you give the Lamborghini Countach respect as setting the standard of what a Super Exotic is.

    Bentleys and (Rolls Royce) name holds the most weight in the Super luxury world and they earned it. VW now owns Bentley, but that just means the cars are just going to get better (VW is quality).

    Ask yourselves this. If an alien came down to learn about our world and they asked (what is the ultimate example of a luxury car?)...

    Benltey, Rolls Royce. May not be your favorite at all! But the fact is you must give RR/Bentley the Respect as the standard from wich the rest are meauserd by, becuase like them or not they are reckognized as the ultimate example. <!-- Signature -->
     
  18. Look Bentley is the planet greatest luxury car name a car better than bentley and i'll give you five reasons why Bentley is better.comparing this car to to sports cars is pure blasphemy.Bentley is for a person who drive sports cars on weekends and wants car thats has a mixture of sport and luxury,that what the Bentley is.It is a gentlemens sporty sedan and one hell of a chick magnet.<!-- Signature -->
     
  19. If you buy a car simply because you are so afraid to lose on the street, you are a coward and have no buisness talking about peformance. This car has class and thats a fact. I love the styling and so do many others. What it comes down too, as I think someone else said, is that you drive what you like. If you like a car for its looks, feel and general layout, but buy something else just for .5 sec on the hole shot, your an insecure fool. I would love to have an Audi S4. I like the styling, the feel, way Audis are built, the quattro, and the semi-rareness of the car. It will get its ass handed to it by an M3, and the WRX or Evo with mods will slaughter it. I still like it.
    Same thing with this car. The price is irelevant Bentlys are for the rich, and I mean filthy rich buyer. They dont car too much about price. They want style and comfort from this car, and thats what it delivers. The fact that it will pull a 0-60 in 5.5 is a nice bonus. The aura of a hand built is a huge intangible bennefit as well. Why do you think AM's are so coveted. They are hand built. The guy who built your motor sighned the valve covers! Thats awesome.
    I have no idea why this car is being bashed. If they made a $300,000 car and said it was a good value, would use that as the determining factor in what car you bought? <!-- Signature -->
     
  20. I have to say, DieCastDomain is definitely correct here. Bentleys are a cut above pretty much anything else on the road.

    I'm gonna go ahead and classify myself as an amateur car nut here, with nothing better to do. The Bentleys are a no-compromise car. The power is insane, the reputation is unparalleled, and they are hand-made. Money is usually not an object for the Bentley buyer.

    Saying crap like "My (insert name and model of really fast car) will kill this car off the line" or "that's stupid a (insert name and model of favorite luxury car) is much more of a value and it's faster" - fine, but remember this ... You don't see Bentley advertising on TV going "Right now you can lease a brand new 7-series for $699 a month for 60 months with $2437 due at signing at 5.5% Important restrictions apply ..." Or worse - at "Do you have a job? YES! And do you have $199? YES! Them you could be approved ..."

    Bentley dealerships are the kind that probably have a ferrari AND a lamborghini sitting across the Bentley (and a RR in the corner) in the same showroom. It's just a cut above.

    Ever sat in a bently? No you haven't. I on the other hand, have RIDDEN in one. It is like having a fully stocked house on wheels, but portable. The seats are very much recliner soft. This is a long distance, relaxing, comfortable, enjoyable car, that if i had 300 K i would buy. There is quality to this car that is unparalleled. Period.

    Now shut up

  23. I have been in a Bentley and hey! if u do have money growing from ur greenhouse then why not?!?! but any other reason... and i know people who do have this car and did "save" for it... i could think of many cars much better than this.... It is slow for 300K and the style is recycled and not my idea of a worthy competitor in the 300K bracket... I would go for the Vanquish... and belive me they r not as comfortable as many people think.

This car is for people that dont hafta save up, that the can buy it and not be worried about totalling it and losing all they "saved" their money for becuase they have more money than they care they have.
