Lot 220: Bentley Arnage Red Label

Cars & Motorcycles, Historics at Brooklands (26 May 2012)

The Bentley Arnage was launched in 1998, a large luxury saloon car that replaced the previous Bentley Turbo saloon. Built by Bentley Motors in Crewe, England 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 were introduced. The new Arnage 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 Red Label Arnage was launched in October 1999 and the engine reverted back to Bentley power using the traditional V8 engine with a displacement of 6750cc. Bentley made substantial modifications to the original BMW engine cars, and designated them as the 'Arnage Green Label' for the 2000 model year. As part of the modification process, both Red and Green Label cars benefitted from expanded leg room in the cabin, stiffer body shells, and larger wheels and brakes. This righthand drive Red Label Arnage is finished in dark metallic blue with magnolia hide piped in blue and was first registered in March 2001. Originally supplied by JCT600 in Leeds, they gave the car its first service at 549 miles. The car was then serviced by Bentley Essex in February 2003 at a mileage of 6289, with the next one conducted by Broughtons in October 2003 at 12,363 miles. From late 2003 to the present day, this Arnage has still been maintained by marque specialists having new front brake discs, pads and rear shock absorbers fitted in 2010 and a full service carried out by marque specialists, Hanwells in 2011. The current mileage stands at 48,500 miles. This car is supplied with a United Kingdom V5C registration document, current MoT road test certificate until August 2012 and a file containing invoices and old MoT test certificates which substantiate the mileage. This well presented Bentley saloon offers incredible value for money when considering its original 150,000+ price tag.
