The Arnage was phased in during the spring of 1998, initially with BMW power. However, Bentley then passed into the hands of the Volkswagen Group while Rolls-Royce was acquired by BMW, forcing Volkswagen to find an alternative engine for the Arnage. In fact they sourced two, creating the option of Red and Green Label models, with the Red Label featuring a Cosworth-built version of Bentley's stalwart single-turbo OHV 6.75-litre V8, complete with a stump-pulling 616 lb ft of torque.
Finished in blue with cream hide and blue carpets this Red Label Arnage has covered some 52,000 miles. Offered with a current MoT to February 2021, it has been sparingly used by the vendor during his ownership although we understand some £8,000 has been spent on it. Please note the current cherished registration is being retained and it his hoped an appropriate year related plate will have been obtained by the time of sale.
