At launch, the Arnage T Mulliner Level II was not only the highest specification motorcar available from Bentley, it was the most powerful model the company had ever produced and the fastest production specification four-door Saloon available anywhere in the world. Its most sumptuous of specifications included: quilted leather interior trim with crested backrests; engine-turned aluminium facia and door trims; heated and electrically-adjustable rear seats; rear picnic tables; DVD-based satellite navigation system; cruise control; CD autochanger; twin Bentley umbrellas; five-spoke split-rim alloy wheels; Mulliner badges and lower vents for the front wings; Mulliner tread plates; quad exhaust pipes etc. The power output of the twin turbo light-alloy 6.75-litre engine was no less than 456bhp, while maximum torque was a stump pulling 645 lb ft - this wasn't just a hyper-luxury Saloon, but a supercar in disguise, capable of sprinting to 60mph in a little over five seconds and on to a top speed only a couple of miles-per hour shy of 170mph.
The truly splendid-looking Facelifted model Level II example now offered is finished in a graceful shade of Deep Blue that's matched to Cream hide upholstery and Blue pile carpets. It has remained in the same ownership for the last 14 years and still only covered 37,000 warranted miles. It has been serviced every year irrespective of mileage, the maintenance being carried out in turn by main dealer Bentley Cardiff and then marque specialists Bentley Hadley green and Wraith Motors. The vendor has no hesitation in classing the bodywork, paintwork, interior trim, turbo V8 engine and automatic transmission as all being in 'excellent' condition, and is offering the car complete with: Tracker; full owner's book pack; full service history with related invoices; two sets of keys; and every past MOT certificate, plus one valid into September of next year. Remarkable value in today's market.
