When launched in 1998 as the last chapter in Bentley’s era of Vickers ownership, the Arnage caused some consternation among the marque’s more traditionalist customers as the long serving 6.75 litre V8 was abandoned in favour of a turbocharged BMW unit of ‘only’ 4.4 litres. This was rectified after VW took control in 1999, the two engines being offered alongside each other – the Red Label was the single turbo 6.75, while the Green Label was the BMW engined car. The Red Label comprehensively outsold the Green Label – only seven were made – leading to the latter’s swift demise. Thereafter the Arnage went from strength to strength, being for a while the most powerful four-door saloon in the world. Build quality was exemplary – this was a hand-built car in the finest British tradition. According to rumour, nine Porsche 911s could be built in the time it took to craft an Arnage dashboard!
This 2001 6.75 car is in very smart condition and is running well; inside it features all the luxuries that one would expect, such as electric and heated front and rear seats and a rear seat DVD system. The car also sports limited-edition chrome wheels refurbished last year at a cost of £615. It comes with a fully stamped service book, some bills, a V5c and an MOT until July next year.
