Lot 118 - 2001 Bentley Arnage Red Label
|Odometer reading||54,700 miles|
|Result||Sold - £17,696|
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 30th November 2001, this Bentley Arnage is finished in the delightful colour combination of Storm Silver with Magnolia interior and with only 54,700 miles on the clock this Bentley is barely run-in. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 1st June 2024, together with the original service books and a host of invoices. With ample leather and Walnut in the interior, whether driving or being driven, an example such as this Bentley is a memorable experience. Incredible value for money given the original £150,000 plus price tag.
