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.

This excellent 2000 Bentley Arnage, fitted with 6.75 litre Rolls-Royce engine, was supplied new to a high specification, finished in Peacock Blue with white pin stripping. Lovely cream leather interior piped in blue,  complemented with walnut wood door cappings and picnic tables to the rear compartment. This Bentley was also supplied with cream instrument dials, dark blue lamb’s wool over rugs and is fitted with the optional split rim alloy wheels. The car has covered only 61,000 miles from new with a very good service history, 16 stamps in the book, the first 30,000 miles with Bentley Parks of Hamilton then with marque specialists, Silver Lady Services who continued to maintain it to a very high standard right up to current mileage. For the MoT in 2021 the car was fitted with new tyres. Supplied with a V5 registration document, an MoT test certificate which expires in August 2022, the book pack containing the stamped service book, a file containing large number of invoices from Silver Lady Service and two keys with alarm fobs. Also included, the cherished registration number and a Bentley umbrella. These wonderful superior and luxurious classic Bentleys present such good value for money considering their original sale price.
