Bentley Motors launched the Arnage RL in 2001; the culmination of world-class coachbuilding that spans generations. It is a car that takes personalisation to a new level, where the vehicle is a canvas on which you can paint your vision. The RL retains the classic Arnage profile whilst offering even more palatial comfort for all on board but, make no mistake, this is not an ocean liner, this is a car to drive in the fine tradition of generations of sporting saloons fronted by the 'Flying B'. Its extended wheelbase translates into more interior space, offering two inches more in the front and a remarkable eight inches in the rear.
This very desirable Arnage RL, also referred to as a long wheelbase model, is one of very few second generation Arnages produced. Supplied new in dark green coachwork over a dark green and Parchment interior, the Bentley comes with optional extras such as a wooden rear centre armrest and rear fridge in the armrest. Showing a mere 28,910 on the odometer the RL has previously been sold by well-respected dealer William Loughran and more recently has been serviced at Tunbridge Wells Bentley at 28,011 miles. Presented in very good order throughout, the cabin is an extremely comfortable place to be indeed with leather and burr walnut in abundance. Supplied with a vast amount of paperwork including old MoT test certificates and service records as well as the current UK V5C registration document. Costing in excess of £180,000 when new and taking into account the car’s condition, this Arnage RL represents fantastic value for money.
