|Odometer reading||56,342 miles|
|Estimate||£15,000 - £18,000|
|Result||Sold - £14,999|
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 bodyshells and larger wheels and brakes.
Originally registered in December 1999, this Bentley has covered 56,432 from new and is finished in the delightful colour combination of Verdant Green with Parchment interior, piping and a green top roll. This impressive Bentley has been well looked after and has a service book showing 16 stamps from main agents or specialists. Forming part of a deceased estate, this Arnage has seen very little use in recent years. In fact, the most recent service was undertaken by marque specialists Royce Engineering of Surrey in 2019 with 56,027 miles showing! Supplied to auction with a V5C registration document, various bills and receipts and a fresh MoT test certificate, this Bentley saloon offers incredible value for money when considering its original price tag of over £150,000.
