 Vehicle Description
In 1999, the Rolls-Royce/Bentley divorce was being finalized, with Rolls-Royce going to live with BMW and Bentley awarded to VW. But for a brief period of time, all the vehicles got spectacular twin-turbocharged BMW V8s, and this Arnage is the last of the big cruisers fully designed in-house by Bentley engineers and craftsmen. Original sticker price? A whopping $203,800 before options, shipping, and taxes. Assume the original owner was into this one for a cool quarter-million.





Today you can enjoy that sybaritic hedonism in grand style for a fraction of the original price. The Arnage is instantly recognizable anywhere, and putting a trains cow-catcher on the nose would not improve its ability to part slow-moving traffic. In typical Bentley fashion, the bodywork is beautiful, tasteful, elegant, and sublimely finished to the highest standards. Even parked next to an S-Class Mercedes, the paint on the Arnage is notably nicer. There has never been any damage, no accidents, and the car has obviously been professionally maintained from day one by someone who cared. It cuts an imposing figure, and will never, ever be mistaken for anything else. Show up in this one and people figure youre a captain of industry or a movie star, and no one will ever guess that you paid less than a new Cadillac Escalade for it.





Nobody else does interiors like the British, and this one is like a gentlemens club that can do 143 MPH. The hand-crafted interior features Connolly leather, detailed stitching unique to Bentley, veneered woodwork, Wilton carpets, smooth chrome switches, and a complex curvature for the dash panel and center console. Is it art? Well, perhaps, and once youve settled in there youll feel like a million bucks. Theres some slight wear to the drivers seat bolsters, but thats only because the hides are not over-processed, and can be easily touched up. Cream-faced gauges are spectacularly retro, and every single component feels expensive under your fingertips. And if youre lucky enough to be a passenger, the rear seat is commodious with more stretch-out room than a Suburban. Bentley was even thoughtful enough to provide an umbrella in the trunk.





Power comes from BMWs rugged and powerful 4.4 liter twin-turbocharged V8, which makes 350 horsepower in Bentley tune. Its enough to make this car formidable on the highway, and it wafts along in eerie silence at anything below 100 MPH. The BMW powertrain also includes a 5-speed automatic gearbox, whose quick reflexes make the big car feel 2000 pounds smaller when the road starts to get challenging. Actually, its mannerisms make it feel like a car thats begging to be driven with the hammer down, just like the Bentleys of yore. With a fully independent suspension, disc brakes the size of trash can lids, and fat 255/55/17 radials on chrome-plated alloys, its ability to hustle will astound you.





Join the A-list for a fraction of the price. Well happily remove the sale price so nobody will ever know how little you paid. Call today!
