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 saloon came with an Alpine sat-nav system and parking sensors as standard.
Finished in Gloss Black with Black leather upholstery, this particular example is understood to have been supplied new by Jack Barclay Ltd. Maintained by the latter as well as the likes of Broughtons of Cheltenham and Bentley Norwich, its most recent service was carried out by specialists Royce of Surrey at an indicated 87,000 miles (some 3,000 miles ago). Rating the Bentley's turbocharged 6.75 litre V8 engine, automatic transmission, electrical equipment, bodywork, paintwork and interior trim as 'excellent', he considers the luxury saloon to be: 'A car for all seasons. Marvellous to drive and be driven in'. Riding on alloy wheels, this 'fastidiously maintained' Arnage Red Label boasts an advisory-free MOT certificate valid until March 2017.
