When you are royalty, there are certain perks that go along with that grueling schedule, like Queen Elizabeth’s custom Bentley Arnage! This ultra-luxe and ultra-exclusive Bentley is one of just two, making it a priceless piece of automotive history. If Bentley is not going to create a custom car just for you, just indulge in an exotic car rental in New York or a city near you from Imagine Lifestyles Luxury Rentals! We have a Bentley rental for every occasion in multiple locations.
The Queen’s car making a rare appearance
The Queen only rides in her Arnage during special occasions, and it certainly makes an impression each time it leaves the garage! The car was created in 2002 as a gift at the Queen’s Golden Jubilee, and what a gift it is! Under the hood is a twin-turbocharged 6.5-liter V8 that was modified from the Arnage R version to produce 400 horses with a max speed of 130 mph. What that translates to is that while this car appears a bit on the heavy side, it is indeed fast with plenty of power for a grand touring luxury car.
Custom Bentley Arnage
Queen Elizabeth’s custom Bentley is 3 feet longer than the standard Arnage, 10 inches taller and 6 inches wider. Oversized coach style doors open 90 degrees for comfortable entry and exit. As a nod to the country, British textile manufacturer Hield Brothers produced the Lambswool Sateen cloth used for the upholstery of the rear seats, a nice touch.
