The Arnage was Bentley's top of the range between 1998 and 2009 and utilised the famous 6.75 litre V8 throughout the model's life although the car was developed and improved when the Series 2 was introduced in 2002. Known as either the Arnage 'R' or 'T', the Series 2 was refined in all areas, including the engine which now featured Bosch Motronic engine management and 2 small 'Garret T3' Turbochargers replacing the previous single large T4. The 'R' was the luxury specification car with a softer ride and a more restrained interior and the 'T' was the performance focussed model with stiffer suspension, aluminium turned dashboard and split rim alloy wheels with very low profile tyres. This particular car is the Series 2 'R' factory demonstrator, and once carried the very famous factory number plate, "1800 TU". It has been extremely well maintained throughout its life with all services carried out on time by the franchised main Bentley dealer, Broughtons of Cheltenham. In fact, the last service by Broughtons was as recent as 29-9-2015. Today the car has covered 78,000 miles and is owned by a highly respected local car collector who is a personal friend of our MD, Nick Whale. It's presented in the original colour combination of Verdant with Spruce leather upholstery and looks extremely smart with contrasting chromed wheels. Offered as a No Reserve entry, we strongly encourage close inspection of this outstanding example that has been extremely well maintained and comes with an interesting provenance. The private registration plate "S9 BVL" is included with this Lot.
