Harry's Thoughts

The Bentley Arnage RL LWB is the ultimate of luxury. Whether owner driven or chauffeured, this is the most elegant and luxurious car of its era.

THE ESSENTIALS

SOLD to Philadelphia!  This is one of the most special Bentley Arnages ever built, period. It is the very rare Long Wheel Base which is a 10-inch extension of the standard Arnage. This particular 2001 Bentley Arnage RL LWB is one of only 20 LHD examples built and one of a small number in North America.

The extended body is mostly within the rear passenger door length.  The rear passenger cabin feels analogous to flying First Class on an international flight!  The LWB models came with a separate air conditioning system in the rear that is controlled by the rear seat passengers. We love the parchment leather contrasted with sand piping and hides throughout the interior space. It has the sand leather top roll on the dash, which blends in beautifully with the Masons Black paint. The Wilton wool carpets are all sand with sand piping. The original black mouton sheepskin overlays are included for the front and rear passengers as well. The steering wheel is the extra thick version in the contrasting leather, and it feels perfect.

The wood is in very good condition. There are several additional wood veneer panels to the door, picnic tables and vanities in the rear passenger compartment. I don’t believe you could have any more wood in an Arnage!

The parchment leather seats are in very good condition and are very comfortable. The front seats have all the expected electrical conveniences. The rear seats have electric reclining and lumbar adjustments as well as rear seat heaters.

It has four Toyo radials mounted on the chromed Bentley Red Label 18-inch wheels. The LWB features the venerable 400+HP twin turbo that makes the car perform amazingly!! And with about 620 ft lbs of torque it pulls like a freight train. Note the dual exhaust! This LWB sounds breathtaking, the exhaust note has a deep rumble that exudes power. And the performance doesn’t disappoint.

This Arnage RL flew through our 158-point inspection.  We replaced the rear suspension spheres to make sure the ride is as it should be.  This Bentley appears very well maintained.

The Arnage was sold new on October 31, 2001 by Desert European in Rancho Mirage, CA to Mr. Larry Taylor of Los Angeles.  Mr. Taylor traded in his 1997 Bentley Brooklands Trophy Edition for the Arnage RL.  It was later owned by Mr. John Randolph of Scottsdale, AZ.  Mr. Randolph was a member of the RROC since 1963.  It is now owned by our client who resides in Beverly Hills, CA.

CONDITION OF THIS ARNAGE RL
This Arnage is now 20 years old and has accumulated 48,000 miles. The Masons Black paint is absolutely stunning. It has a few small chips which have been touched up, but are visible only upon close inspection. The parchment leather has been touched up only as needed and is in very nice condition. It has the expected amount of wear and is still very stunning. The wood is very nice with a couple pieces that exhibit cracking (see the inspection video). It has a clean CARFAX verifying that there have been no accidents or issues.

This LWB also comes with the original owners and service manuals, entertainment system manuals, etc. 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 two umbrellas.

Interesting Fact: The Bentley Arnage is a full-size luxury vehicle that was manufactured by Bentley Motors in England during the years of 1998 to 2009. This model was designed to cause a resurgence of the Bentley brand by being the first new build since the Bentley Mulsanne in 1980.

Choosing to use a third-party engine represented a switch from Bentley tradition, but the BMW M62 V8 engine was selected due to the sporty power it provided. In 1998, a takeover battle between BMW and Volkswagen Group caused a drop in sales when BMW publicly threatened to stop supplying engines if they lost. While this ended up not being an issue, Volkswagen Group redesigned a 6.75-litre 16-valve engine that was used in the Bentley Turbo R, and a revised version of the car named the Arnage Red Label, later to be designated R, was released in late 1999.

The Bentley Arnage T and R were the early variants released during the early years of the manufacturing process. With a 0 to 60 of 5.2 seconds and a top speed of 180 mph, the Arnage T was released in 2002 and is considered the sportier model of the two. Both models boast impressive speeds and a comfortable ride that keeps them popular today!
