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. The Red Label models were replaced in 2002 by the Arnage R.

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 R includes electric memory seats, air conditioning and cruise control. During his ownership the fastidious vendor has spent significant amounts, ensuring this Bentley is maintained to a very good level. Work carried out over the last couple of years includes, new H.T. leads, new suspension bushes and ball joint, four new tyres and general servicing work. The Arnage R 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 4th July 2024. A great luxury tourer which oozes opulence but has terrific performance to match. Consigned by Stewart Banks.
