2000 Bentley Arnage Red Label

The original Bentley Arnage released in the mid 1990s was powered by a 4.5 litre turbocharged BMW derived V8.   After the Rolls Royce/Bentley Group was sold off in 1998, Rolls Royce was bought by BMW, and Bentley by the VW Audi group.  The idea of a rival engine in their flagship luxury car did not sit well with VW so in 1998 the Arnage was re-engineered with the dated but functional Rolls Royce V8 engine first used in the late 1950’s and designated the 'Red label'.

However, fitted with a Cosworth engineered Turbo set up this 6.75 litre engine developed around 400BHP.  This was enough to haul this 2 ¼ tonne luxury limousine up to 60mph in less than 6 seconds from rest.

With subtle differences to styling giving increased legroom, electronic self-levelling suspension and brakes uprated for the increased weight, the car became a firm favourite with Bentley fans.

By the time production ceased in 2003, 2273 examples of this fine car had been sold at a price of £149,000.

As of May 2019, this car is currently off display temporarily. Please check out vehicle list for details.
