|Estimate||£14,000 - £18,000|
|Result||Sold - £21,840|
The Bentley Arnage was launched in 1998, a large luxury saloon car that replaced the previous Bentley Turbo saloon. Built 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 a powerful BMW V8 engine with Cosworth-engineered twin-turbo chargers.
Originally registered in March 1999, it was subsequently sold by S.P. Broughton & Co with a mere 13,500 miles on the odometer, it is presented in Peacock Blue with complimentary cream leather and blue piping accompanied by wood to the facia, door cappings and centre console. Its first private keeper kept the Bentley in a heated garage and used the car sparingly until August 2001 when he sold it to the second owner, a wealthy gentleman in North London who afforded this delightful car the same treatment; hence the reason why she presents in such superb condition today.
Supplied with three keys, two key fobs, all original wallets and books, a V5 registration document and an MoT test certificate until May 2018 combined with a comprehensive service history including nine service stamps from Bentley main dealer and specialists, the most recent from Wraith Continental Bentley specialists this year. This Bentley Arnage Green Label is available at a fraction of the cost when new and examples such as this are generally regarded as 'offering exceptional value' given the level of comfort and luxury on tap.
