2000 Bentley Arnage $31,995
The 2000 Bentley Arnage Red Label is the car Bentley fans were waiting for. It delivers all the best in modern luxury and returned the serious power and torque of a proper British motor. That made it an instant classic, and that's also why we love to see one that knows how to deliver the full package for an affordable price.
The new Arnage returned Bentley to the top of the luxury car world, and the Red Label version reinstated the power we wanted, but more on that in a moment. Instead, take time to appreciate the design that updated the classic Bentley sedan look that added sleekness without losing that vintage feeling. The car is about taking the time to develop its opulence. You see in the design lines everywhere from the way the hood integrates the grille, to the crease that goes from headlight to taillights. It's tastefully accented with brightwork on the 18-inch factory alloys, mesh grille, and a trim line that not only hugs the sides, but also seamlessly wraps around the front and rear. And because this has been treated as an upper-level classic from day one, the panels, paint, and details all have the robust feeling of quality.
The interior is all about craftsmanship. The saddle tan leather has the supple look of carefully chosen hides. The carpeting is living room plush, and the walnut wood has a terrific gloss (including on the rear seat tray tables.) In fact, speaking of the rear, there's the kind of room that reminds you that many of these have been chauffeur-driven. But as we've indicated before, this is the kind of Bentley built for owners who are the drivers. That's why the front has heated seats that power adjust to the ideal comfort position. The leather-wrapped steering wheel feels great in your hands, there's power steering, and all the crisp gauges are at eye-level. But no matter where the owner sits, you will be in the lap of luxury thanks to features like automatic climate control, power windows, power locks/alarm, cruise control, dual airbags, power sunroof, and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth.
Under the hood is one of the best upgrades around. For the 2000 model year the Red Label cars returned the 6.75-liter V8. It's a true British motor for this Bentley, and it has the kind of serious torque that the BMW unit didn't provide. It makes this car significant, and that's why it's great to have what is believed to be the original motor under the hood. It's fuel-injected and turbocharged, which means it delivers smooth power and plenty of it! The GM-supplied four-speed automatic transmission is a terrific stout unit to reliably handle this torque-filled motor, and it also allows for smooth overdrive cruising. And the fully independent suspension and four wheel disc brakes (w/ABS) complete a package built to be the ultimate upper class sedan with a sporting pedigree.
Complete with the full owner's manual packet, this is complete luxury wrapped around storied powerful motor. So it's time to grab this instant classic that has all the best modern comfort. Call now!
