BaT Auction: 2001 Bentley Arnage Red Label

This post was originally published on this site

This 2001 Bentley Arnage Red Label is finished in black over black leather and powered by a turbocharged 6.75-liter Rolls-Royce V8 paired with a 4-speed automatic transmission. Originally purchased in California, the car was relocated to Georgia following the third owner’s purchase in 2014 and recently acquired by the selling dealer. A service was reportedly performed by Nalley Bentley in Alpharetta, Georgia at 77,500 miles in 2015. This Arnage now shows 79k miles and is offered by the selling dealer with a clean Carfax and a clear Georgia title.

The Arnage was the first new Bentley design in nearly 20 years when introduced in 1998. This example is finished in black, and the Carfax report shows no accidents or other damage. Blemishes noted by the seller include dented chrome and scrapes on the rear bumper, discoloration in the right sideview mirror and headlight lenses, and a ding on the driver’s door.

Exterior trim includes Red Label badging and center caps on the polished factory wheels, which are mounted with Michelin rubber. The seller points out a broken trunk latch and surrounding plastic trim.

The cabin is trimmed in black Connolly leather with wool carpeting and burl wood paneling. The seller notes flaws in the varnish on the passenger door, and cracks are visible on the instrument cluster, center control stack, and driver’s seat adjustment switch. A retractable dash-top Alpine navigation screen and parking sensors were standard equipment. Approximately 79k miles are shown on the digital odometer.

Originally designed for a twin-turbo BMW V8, the Red Label was instead fitted with a turbocharged 6.75L Rolls-Royce pushrod V8 due to conflicts arising from Volkswagen’s acquisition of Bentley. The chassis was reinforced to handle the additional weight of the iron-block engine, which produced 400 horsepower and 619 lb-ft of torque when new. A GM 4-speed automatic transmission sends power to the rear wheels.

The recent Carfax records an accident-free history with three owners in California and Georgia through early 2016. Service records are unavailable.
