The Bentley Arnage was launched in 1998, a large luxury saloon car that replaced the previous Bentley Turbo saloon. Built by in Crewe from 1998 to 2009, the Arnage and its Rolls-Royce sibling, the Silver Seraph, were introduced in the spring of 1998 and were the first entirely new designs for the two marques since 1980 when the Silver Spirit and Mulsanne models were introduced. The Arnage Green Label was to be powered by the BMW V8 engine with Cosworth-engineered twin-turbo chargers but the Red Label employed the more preferable 6.75 litre Bentley powerplant and was, for a brief time, the most powerful and fastest four-door saloon on the market.
Presented in traditional Sherwood Green with a cream hide interior, this super-luxurious Bentley benefits from a full service history and an MoT test certificate valid until June, 2017. The original mileage was logged at 58,086 when a new (DIP) speedometer unit was fitted in 2003 when the car subsequently travelled a further 27,351 miles totalling 85,437. Interior comforts abound and include a Garmin satellite navigation system. Representing huge value for money, this palace of a motorcar is very sensibly priced indeed.
