Model Background:

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.

PLEASE NOTE: The personalised number plate shown in the photos 'TRB 98' is being retained by the vendor and does not form part of the sale.

PLEASE NOTE: This lot was last serviced at 24,428 miles and not 24,600 miles as stated in the catalogue.

PLEASE NOTE: The last stamp in the accompanying service book was made at 16,160 miles. The information about the Bentley being serviced at 18,954, 19,824 and 20,544 miles was given to us by the previous owner for whom we sold it for £24,150 in June 2018.
