Lot details

Registration No: R13 SWB
Chassis No: SCBLC37F45CH10126
MOT: October 2024

  • Highly desirable Mulliner Level II that would have cost some £147,000 when new
  • Warranted 61,000 miles from new
  • Understood to have been the London Motor Show and Bentley Press Car
  • Excellent service history, all from main dealers and specialists

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: high-quality leather interior trim; 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.

Chassis ‘10126’ was manufactured in 2004 and was registered new to the Bentley Motors Cars Press and Special Car Division on the 10th of June that year. A highly desirable Mulliner Level II example that would have cost some £147,000 when new, this example is reputedly the London Motor Show and Bentley Press Car for the Mulliner Level IIs. Finished in the striking colour combination of two-tone Peacock Blue over Fountain Blue paintwork with complementary Blue Magnolia leather interior upholstery and French Navy leather secondary hide and carpets, the Arnage’s high specification features (further to those mentioned previously) digital climate control, premium sound system, auto lights, front and rear parking sensors, electric steering column, integrated telephone, and wine cooler, chrome 12-inch alloy wheels.

Purchased by the vendor in 2017 and used for trips such as to the races, the Arnage is now offered with just some 61,000 miles from new. Boasting excellent service history, the two accompanying service books have nineteen stamps (including PDI), all of which are from Rolls-Royce and Bentley main dealers and specialists, with the first three being completed by Bentley Press and Special Car Division Support. Presenting excellently upon consignment, the Mulliner is now only making way for a modern replacement. Offered with a history file that comprises the original book pack including the service books and owner’s handbook in the Bentley wallet, a collection of previous invoices, the original Mulliner sales literature pack, and a current V5C document. Further offered with the Bentley car cover and two sets of keys, the vendor advises the Arnage presents as a 'very good' or 'excellent' example of the highly desirable Mulliner Level II.
