Lot 160 - 2001 Bentley Arnage Red Label
- Only covered 7,500 miles since 2006
- Recently re-commissioned
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.
This lovey 2001 Bentley Arnage Red Label, which has the more desirable 6.75 litre V8 engine, was purchased by the vendor in 2014. When supplied new it came with a very high specification including DVD player in the rear compartment with the monitors mounted in the rear of the front headrests. After four years in dry storage, this Bentley was recently recommissioned which included fitting new tyres. This Arnage Red Label has only covered 7,500 miles since 2006 and, we are informed by the owner, the car was looked after by H R Owen prior to 2006. Finished in Peacock Blue with Parchment Connolly hide interior, this lovely Bentley Arnage is supplied with a V5C registration document, an MoT test certificate which expires in November 2023, the handbook pack and two umbrellas fitted in the boot. This comprehensively optioned luxury saloon represents incredible value for money and a delightfully luxurious motoring experience.
