Lot 334 - 2000 Bentley Arnage Red Label
|Odometer reading||87,000 miles|
|Estimate||£14,000 - £18,000|
Launched in 1998 the Bentley Arnage was a large luxury saloon car that replaced the previous Bentley Turbo saloon. Manufactured 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.
Finished in Wildberry with magnolia leather interior, this Bentley Arnage sits on a set of Bentley multi-spoke anthracite alloy wheels. It is supplied with the original literature pack and service books together with a number of invoices. A Red Label cost in excess of £150,000 when new, it is easy to see why when you drive a Bentley-armchair like seats, oceans of walnut and ample power available. This Arnage is supplied with a V5C registration document and an MoT test certificate valid until July 2019; without doubt this car offers amazing value for money given the modest estimate.
