Bentley produced their Arnage luxury automobile from 1998 to 2009. The Arnage and its sibling, the Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph, were both introduced in the spring of 1998. They were the first entirely new designs for both Rolls-Royce and Bentley since 1980. Unlike the decades-old 6.75-litre engine used in past models, the Arnage received a 4.4-liter, 350-hp BMW V-8 with Cosworth-engineered twin turbochargers. For a short period of time, it was the fastest four-door saloon on the market.
The powerful Arnage being offered here is appropriately seen in Dark Mulsanne Green with sumptuous light tan leather throughout the opulent interior. Premium Bentley dark green lambswool rugs are also found alongside Bentley-logoed umbrellas in this fully equipped luxury automobile. The finish and condition of this Bentley is nearly perfect with very few flaws to be found. Only slight wear can be found on the driver’s seating area. Among the equipment onboard is air conditioning (with rear controls), factory alloy wheels, radio with CD, white-faced instrumentation, factory books and innumerable power and convenience items; a sunroof and new Goodyear tires round out the list of bonuses found on this high-quality sedan. It is reported that the elegant wood trim found throughout the cabin area has recently been refinished. The odometer on this particular car is displayed in kilometers. Priced at over $250,000 when new, the Bentley Arnage was, and continues to be amongst the most prestigious cars ever produced. 1999 Bentley Arnage Saloon
