To mark 60 years of production at Crewe Bentley launched the Diamond Series, a limited run of a planned 60 cars based on the Arnage R. Features included a twin turbo 6.75-litre V8 engine producing some 400bhp (450bhp was also an option), 19” alloy wheels, Flying B radiator mascot, stainless-steel matrix to the bumpers, shade band to the windscreen, front sunroof, Union flag wing badges, Jewel fuel filler cap, and chromed rear number plate surround. Current Arnage colour schemes were available whilst the interior featured Diamond quartered marquetry with Maple inlay, Diamond quilt design to seats, Burr Oak veneer, folding picnic tables, veneered door panels, companion mirrors, veneered steering wheel controls surrounds, piping to seats in a co-ordinated colour, Bentley winged emblems embroidered to the headrests, Diamond Series etched treadplates and a ’Crewe 60 Years’ front console badge. Roughly 50 percent of production went to the USA. One of just 19 examples supplied to the UK market, the Windsor Blue car on offer here was originally allocated to Bentley’s Press & Special Car Department. Understood to have had three former keepers, it has benefited from the fitment of new discs and pads together with new spark plugs amongst other mechanical and electrical fettling in 2019. The auto ride height system was also attended to in 2012 at a cost of £5734. The drive belts have also been replaced along with a new water pump, lambda sensor, ignition coil and radiator. This limited edition Bentley comes with its original book pack including handbook and service book (showing thirteen entries) and a collection of old MoTs and invoices. Having covered 157,000 miles ‘DK56HYA’ is offered with an MOT certificate into August 2022.
