Random Car Spotting: Bentley Arnage

2009.

 I came across this Bentley Arnage in the Adelaide CBD one day in May 2009, just parked on the side of the road on Gouger Street next to a Commodore, which probably cost a lot less than one new tyre for the Bentley. It's incredibly rare to see any Bentley on the streets in Adelaide, let alone a current model, so this was a very lucky find. 

If you've looked at the AMG Mercedes SL63 post and were shocked at the price, prepare yourself for the RRP for the even more expensive Arnage; A$575,000. That doesn't include the luxury car tax ($117,725) and stamp duty ($22,490) , which takes the grand total up to $715,215.

On the upside, the price drops significantly for a model that's a few years old, there are a few Arnages on www.carsales.com.au at the moment. 

And if you enjoy looking at cars that cost more than a house, check out Bentley's website: http://www.bentleymotors.com/
