The Appeal 

Back in the day Bentley meant big, brutal saloons battling down the Mulsanne Straight in the hands of the Bentley Boys. Post war, the firm eased more into a comfortable, cossetting era that was equally alluring but quite different.

Not until the 1980s did the firm look to pull the two strands of its heritage back together with the Turbo models. The later Arnage took things further, balancing a snorting, twin-turbo V8 with exceptional luxury and a chassis tuned for power. The Arnage T was the fastest Bentley in history and also the world’s most powerful four door saloon. Bespoke Mulliner trim options enabled buyers to personalise their steads to equal perfection. 

This low mileage Arnage has the high specification Mulliner Level 2 trim package and is subtly finished in ‘triple black’ with black paint, seats and carpets. It is in very good condition with significant recent investment by the owner. It will come with a fresh MOT. For enthusiasts of very quick, very luxurious saloons, there is surely no alternative.

The Arnage was the first all-new Bentley saloon since the 1960s and the firm’s last fully hand-built model. As such it has a special place in the firm’s lineage. That it also successfully married the firm’s reputations for luxury and brutally quick performance is yet another reason to admire these remarkable cars. 

This very high specification Mulliner Level 2 car is beautifully finished in Triple Black with an exquisite interior. With significant recent investment and a new MOT at point of sale, this is a very tempting and rewarding yet subtle motor car.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £9,999 £100.00
£10,000 to £49,999 £250.00
£50,000 to £99,999 £500.00
£100,000 + £1,000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.

You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you\'re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
