  • Desirable 6.75 V8 litre Bentley engine
  • Specialist service history

Launched in 1998, the Arnage was manufactured in Crewe from 1998 to 2009 with its Rolls-Royce sibling, the Silver Seraph. 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.

First registered on 2nd October 2000 and supplied by Jack Barclay, this impressive example has been in ‘Bentley enthusiast’ ownership for much of its life. The history file for this Arnage contains bills and receipts for servicing, the most recent with specialist Danny Wilcox of DEW services in the summer of 2022. It is presented in Midnight Emerald with Magnolia Connolly leather hide interior and it also comes with two sets of keys. Presented to auction with an MoT test certificate valid until the end of July 2023, this 6.75 V8 litre Bentley offers supreme luxury for a modest outlay.
