Introduced at the 1999 Frankfurt Motor Show, the Bentley Arnage Red Label boasted 835Nm of torque - more than any other production car! Powered by a revised version of the marque's long-serving 6.75-litre V8 (albeit in turbocharged guise) allied to four-speed automatic transmission, the newcomer was reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 5.9 seconds and 155mph. Further benefiting from a stiffer bodyshell, revised suspension and bigger brakes, the luxury sports saloon came with an Alpine sat-nav system and parking sensors as standard. A tangible link to the Crewe-built Bentleys of the 1950s/60s, the last of 2,282 Red Labels was completed in 2005.
