In 1998 the Bentley Arnage was launched, replacing the legendary Bentley Turbo. Built by Bentley Motors in Crewe from 1998 to 2009, the Arnage and its Rolls-Royce counterpart 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 new Arnage was to be powered by a BMW V8 engine with Cosworth-engineered twin-turbo chargers and was designated the 'Arnage Green Label' and the Seraph was to employ a BMW V12 engine. Due to customer pressure regarding the engine, the far superior 'Arnage Red Label' was launched in October 1999 and the engine reverted back to the iconic Rolls-Royce derived 6.8-litre V8 power plant.

Originally registered on 19th September 2002, this Bentley is finished in the delightful colour combination of metallic blue with beige leather interior. To be expected of such a prestige marque, the level of equipment in this Arnage includes power seats, electric seats, air conditioning and cruise control. The ergonomics of these cars is fantastic, with everything easily to hand. The Arnage with the Rolls-Royce 6750cc V8 engine is a superb vehicle to drive with seemingly endless power. Ample leather and walnut wood contribute to making the passenger area a great place to be. Supplied with a V5C registration document together with a current MoT test certificate valid until 18th April 2023. This Bentley Arnage Red Label oozes opulence and luxury, the estimate is a mere fraction of the original £149,000 cost when new; could there be better value for money?
