Lot 227 - 2000 Bentley Arnage (Red Label)
|Odometer reading||79,406 miles|
|Estimate||£18,000 - £23,000|
Launched in 1998, the Arnage was manufactured in Crewe from 1998 to 2009 with its Rolls-Royce sibling, the Silver Seraph, introduced in the Spring of 1998. They were the first entirely new designs for the two marques since 1980 when the Silver Spirit and Mulsanne models were introduced. The new Arnage (Green Label) was to be powered by a BMW V8 engine with Cosworth-engineered, twin-turbo chargers and the Seraph was to employ a BMW V12 engine. The Arnage Red Label was launched in October 1999 with the engine reverting back to Bentley power using the traditional V8 engine and a displacement of 6750cc. As part of the modification process, both Red and Green Label cars benefitted from expanded leg room in the cabin, stiffer body shells and larger wheels and brakes.
Originally registered on 31st May 2000, this Bentley has covered 79,406 miles from new and is finished in the delightful colour combination of Peacock Blue with a Parchment interior, blue seat piping and blue top roll. Picnic tables to the rear and headrest entertainment screens are fitted. We are advised this Bentley drives with no known faults, she has certainly been well looked after with recent service history from both Hanwells and Chelsea Workshop. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a full year’s MoT test certificate, this well presented Bentley saloon offers incredible value for money when considering its original £150,000 plus price tag.
