This is one of the most special Bentley Arnages ever built. It is the very rare Long Wheel Base which is a 10 inch extension of the standard Arnage. This particular LWB is likely the most thoroughly optioned example in North America. It’s distinguishing features include: limousine rear window, full cocktail requisites, refrigerator in the passenger compartment, full entertainment system with wireless headphones, umbrellas, cigars, writing desk, embroidered and inlayed Flying B’s, wood everywhere, leather everywhere else. It is the most elegant and fully spec’d model we’ve seen. The MSRP when new was in excess of $350,000. Our plans were to add this to our private collection, but we must sell it, much to our regret.
The LWB models came with a separate air conditioning system in the rear that is controlled by the rear seat passengers. This example was ordered for four passengers and the rear compartment includes a special writing desk. We love the magnolia leather contrasted with the dark blue hides throughout the interior space. It has the dark blue top roll of the dash. The Wilton wool carpets are all dark blue with magnolia piping. The original dark blue mouton overlays are included as well as the rear foot rests. The steering wheel is the extra thick version in the contrasting leather, and it feels perfect.

The wood is in excellent condition. There are several additional wood veneer panels to the door, picnic tables and vanities in the rear and the wood writing desk and compartment lid in the rear passenger compartment. The rear seats have electric reclining and lumbar adjustments as well as rear seat heaters. The rear compartment stores the cigar tray which includes a silver lighter and cigar cutter.

This Arnage was bought new at Braman Motors in Miami, Florida. It’s first check up was on October 23rd, 2001 with 71 miles showing. The original owner was said to be the heir to the Standard Oil estate.
The second owner, Mr. John “Jack” Brobst of Lake Worth, FL and Macomb, MI, bought the car in about 2002. Mr. Brobst is a collector of Rolls and Bentley and kept the LWB at his home in Miami and Michigan. He also owned a Rolls in the same Peacock Blue confusing friends as to whether he was driving his Rolls or LWB Bentley! By 2011 Mr. Brobst drove the car up to his home in MI. It had accumulated a mere 19,600 miles and was serviced at Bentley Troy, MI. In 2011 Mr. Brobst traded his Rolls and the LWB in for a 2010 Rolls Royce. The LWB was then bought by Mr. Jonathan A Bregy of Palm Beach, FL. It now has a mere 25,300 miles since new. We have the full service log for this fantastic LWB Arnage.
It has a clean CARFAX which shows more owners than actual based upon multiple residences of Mr. Brobst. Of course, no accidents or issues are on the CARFAX. It has four new proper PZero Pirelli radials mounted on the optional 18 inch chrome Bentley wheels. The LWB features the venerable 400+HP twin turbo that makes the car perform amazingly!! Note the dual exhaust!
This LWB also comes with the original sales brochures and accessories catalog. It was ordered with the red B’s on the wheels and throughout.
The navigation system pops up from the top roll of the dashboard. This LWB has the parking assist to the front and rear. Two remotes and two sets of headphones are included for the entertainment system. The LWB comes with one set of keys with remote and one umbrella (the others are missing).
