$32,800

Harry's Thoughts

This is a gorgeous Bentley Arnage Red Label that has received meticulous servicing at Bentley dealerships since new. Although higher mileage than we normally offer, its condition is spectacular. Its second owner is a longtime collector and RROC member and has owned it for the past 17 years!

THE ESSENTIALS

SALE PENDING to Delaware!  This is a beautiful special order 2002 Bentley Arnage Red Label with stunning slate leather contrasted with gorgeous burl walnut wood throughout. This Bentley has been a consistent award winner at regional concours and national RROC events. It is very close to showroom condition throughout, belying its higher mileage.

This Arnage was sold new on January 15th, 2002, to Sandra Via from Moneta, VA from Bentley High Point in NC.  Ms. Via enjoyed the Bentley until it was acquired by its present owner, longtime RROC member Karl Bittner from Victoria, BC, from Bentley High Point for $139,900 on February 16, 2006, having accumulated a mere 16,145 miles from new.  Mr. Bittner has enjoyed the Arnage as a special daily driver for most of the past 17 years and has serviced it faithfully at Bentley Vancouver.  We have an impressive file with the Bentleys history and service records.  In 2022, this Bentley received The Lord Montagu award from the RROC for the Best Car from Outside the US.  The Arnage had been driven to and from the event from Vancouver, BC!  Mr. Bittner also just had a full service performed at Bentley Vancouver and then straightaway drove it down to our showroom in Phoenix!  This is a gorgeous Arnage Red Label that can be enjoyed immediately.

The exterior is finished in its original Silver Pearl paint (Paint Code 9560009) which is nearly perfect. Our inspection only found the typical very small paint chips on the front bumper area from rock chips.  The paint is deep and rich and looks stunning with the polished matrix grills, dual exhaust ports, red label badges and the original Bentley Five Spoke chrome wheels.

The interior is striking in its Slate leather (Trim Code A4137) is in nearly perfect condition with only minor creases in the leather from age and use.  The Slate leather is contrasted with ample special ordered burl walnut wood throughout that is simply gorgeous.  The doors panels have the extra walnut veneer trim, the gear selector and the rear seat picnic tables are burl walnut as well.  This Arnage has the Bentley B’s inlaid in the door cap rails and embroidered into the four headrests. In the trunk are the dual Bentley umbrellas mounted to the far side of the trunk compartment.  The Cirrus Gray carpeting is in excellent condition and is covered by matching Cirrus Gray sheepskin mouton overlays both for the front and the rear occupants.  Of course, the rear seats recline as one would fine in a First-Class cabin.  A relatively rare option for an Arnage is the sunroof, that works as it should.

The engine compartment is fully and beautifully detailed.  The venerable 400hp V8 has over 600 ft lbs. of torque that literally propels this Bentley like a rocket.  Mechanically, this Bentley is nearly as new.  As mentioned previously, this Arnage has been faithfully and meticulously maintained and serviced at Bentley dealerships.  Now having accumulated 74,205 miles from new, it comes complete with its service records beautifully organized in a binder.  Also included is an original sales brochure, the Owner’s handbook, three sets of keys, factory tools, CARFAX Report, additional factory literature and a complete history.

The only imperfection noted is that the navigation screen doesn’t stay down (a common issue with most all Arnages).

For more details and information, please text, call or email Harry Clark at +1.602.245.7200 or sales@classicpromenade.com.  The Bentley is in our Phoenix showroom.  We are pleased to offer FaceTime or WhatsApp live video inspections and we help coordinate shipping worldwide. We also have financing partners if you are interested in financing.

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!
