Arnage Drophead Coupé goes into production

The glamorous Bentley Arnage Drophead Coupé that was launched to worldwide acclaim at the Los Angeles Auto Show in January 2005 is to go into series production.

The magnificent four-seater convertible show car stimulated such interest among Bentley aficionados, both in the USA and Europe, that the decision was immediately taken to continue its extensive development programme in time for delivery of the first cars in Spring 2006.

“We knew that the Drophead Coupé would create quite a stir,” says Bentley chairman Dr Franz-Josef Paefgen, “because it is the most sensationally beautiful convertible with strikingly contemporary lines and an unashamed luxurious interior. Yet even we were surprised by how much demand there has been for us to put it into production. Our customers obviously remembered how good our last convertible was and naturally their expectations for this car were even higher. I’m glad to say they haven’t been disappointed.”
