Launched at La Sarthe in 1998, the Arnage benefitted from the collaboration between Bentley, Rolls-Royce and BMW. The prestige sporting car was briefly the fastest four door saloon on the market; initially powered by a 4.4 litre twin turbocharged V8 unit, the Arnage then inherited a version of the 6.75 litre Turbo R’s engine after the take-over by Volkswagen, which produced a very respectable 420bhp. To differentiate, the former became known as the Green Label, and the later, the Red Label. With the iconic body design and luxurious interior styling we all expect from Bentley, the Arnage Red Label is an exciting prospect for those wanting their modern motor car to offer power, style and substance.
This 1998 example is one of the very rare and desirable Arnages with the BMW 4.4 engine, resulting in lower running and repair costs. These models were made only for a short time with a small production run, making S378 JGP eminently collectable.
We are informed that the Bentley is in excellent condition and has had only three former keepers. The mileage of 72000 is presumed to be original and correct. The motor car is fitted with all of the usual Bentley luxury refinements and has clearly been looked after throughout its life.
