Arnage replacement seen in concept drawings
20 July 2009

Bentley has released a fifth teaser video for its Arnage replacement, revealing some of the design elements of the car.

Bentley design director Dirk van Braeckel says the new car has a “classic Bentley shape, details and proportions with a forward-thinking design”.

A number of sketches are shown, confirming the unusual twin-headlamp arrangement and showing a side profile similar to the Brooklands coupe.

The striking headlamps are a dominant styling feature of the car, which is due to be unveiled at next month’s Pebble Beach concours in California.

Van Braeckel also says the car has an instantly identifiable Bentley look and will be both “powerful and elegant”.

The sketches show the 'grand' Bentley will have tail-lights similar to those of the Flying Spur, albeit slimmer and more traditional.

Sticking with a 5m-plus length, the new Bentley will feature a lower roofline and softer body sections than its main rival, the Rolls-Royce Phantom.
