The Arnage replaced derivatives of the long-serving Mulsanne during 1998 and was initially powered by a DOHC 4.4-litre BMW engine. However, it was around this time that Bentley passed to the Volkswagen Group, who were forced to find an alternative powerplant. In fact they sourced two, creating the option of Red and Green Label Arnages, with the former powered by a Cosworth-built version of Bentley's single-turbo OHV 6.75-litre V8. Coincident with the engine changes, the models were treated to additional legroom, stiffer bodyshell, bigger brakes and larger wheels. The righthand drive Red Label offered hails from 2000 and matches eye-catching Red bodywork to a Cream hide interior. It's had two former keepers and the vendor presently grades the bodywork, paintwork, interior trim, V8 engine and automatic transmission as 'very good'. The impressive service record confirms the indicated mileage of c.62,000 and this impressive Bentley comes complete with all original books, manuals and history file with invoices for £20,000.
