The Arnage was Bentley's top of the range between 1998 and 2009 and utilised the famous 6.75 litre V8 throughout the model's life although the car was developed and improved when the Series 2 was introduced in 2002. Known as either the Arnage 'R' or 'T', the Series 2 was refined in all areas, including the engine which now featured Bosch Motronic engine management and 2 small 'Garret T3' Turbochargers replacing the previous single large T4. The 'R' was the more luxurious car with a softer ride and a more restrained interior and the 'T' was altogether more performance focussed with stiffer suspension, engine-turned aluminium dashboard and split-rim alloy wheels with very low profile tyres.
This particular Bentley Arnage R was supplied new on 1st January 2005 by Broughtons Bentley to its first owner. Presented in arguably one of the best colour combinations of Moonbeam Silver with Cotswold leather and secondary Nordic Hide, the traditionally elegant cabin is finished with Burr Walnut veneers. Other interior luxuries include DVD screens in the rear headrests and factory optioned Arnage T-style seats with diamond quilted leather and the unmistakable Bentley Emblems.
