The Bentley Arnage was launched in 1998, replacing the Bentley 'Turbo' which had offered sterling service for many years. Built by Bentley Motors in Crewe, from 1998 to 2009, the Arnage and its Rolls-Royce sibling, 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 had been introduced. The new Arnage was designed to be powered by a new state-of-the-art BMW V8 engine with Cosworth-engineered twin-turbochargers and was designated the Arnage 'Green Label'. The Arnage 'Red Label' was launched in October 1999, and for a number of reasons, reverted back to Bentley power using the traditional V8 engine with a displacement of 6,750cc. We’re pleased to offer this beautiful Arnage Red Label from the year 2000 in the unusual colour combination of Silver Tempest, a businesslike and purposeful exterior if ever there was one, with a fabulously indulgent interior in Cream and Mulberry. These commanding cars offer an unprecedented level of comfort and effortlessly cover the miles in the most comfortable of settings, turning every journey into an occasion. This luxurious carriage has covered just 67,000 miles, ageing gracefully throughout, and appears to have been particularly well cared for.

The central locking is not working, the sunroof is a little temperamental and the air conditioning lacks a bit of 'oomph', not major problems in the scheme of things, and otherwise, the car is really very good. A service would bring the records up to date and the car is in possession of a current MoT until August 2017. Should you ever be stranded, the distinctive registration number, M999HLP, would surely bring immediate assistance. Our vendor has opted to offer this stylish Bentley at 'No Reserve' and this may well prove to be the bargain of the day!
