ARNAGE: All models get power increases for their 6.75 liter engines. The R and RL are up to 450 horsepower, while the T is up to 500 hosepower. All three are mated to a new 6-speed automatic transmission with Drive, Sport and Semi-Automatic modes. The exterior, interior and underhood areas get subtle styling updates, and changes to the steering column should make drivers more comfortable. RL gets additional standard equipment including a rear armrest bottle cooler and a backup camera.

AZURE: (photo) A four-seat convertible based on the Arnage sedan, the Azure has a 450 horsepower 6.75 liter V8 and carries a price tag of $329,990.

CONTINENTAL: A new GTC four-seat convertible (photo) joins the coupe and sedan. Like the GT coupe, it features a twin-turbocharged 552 horsepower W12 engine, 6-speed automatic and all-wheel-drive. Compared to the Azure it's a relative bargain at $189,990. The Flying Spur sedan gets standard Bluetooth phone integration and a DVD-based navigation system in place of last year's CD-based system. Veneered picnic tables integrated into the front seatbacks are now optional. A Mulliner Driving Specification trim package, available on the GT coupe since 2004, is now available on the Flying Spur sedan.
