2009 Bentley Arnage T Mulliner

Highlights

  • Only 33,100 miles from new
  • Well specified car with Mulliner trimmings 
  • Impressive specialist service history 
  • One of the last built with post-2007 enhancements 
  • Later Arnage T with 490bhp and improved gearbox 
  • MOT to March 2025 with no advisories 

The Appeal

The Arnage was the last of a certain type of Bentley. Fully hand-built and equipped with the traditional 6.8litre V8, later cars like this one were also thoroughly modern. They increasingly borrowed the improved technology from newer cars like the Continental GT. 
This 2009 car is one of the last built, beautifully finished in Tempest Silver metallic with Portland ivory interior and a host of tasty Mulliner trimmings. Post-2007 Arnage Ts like this one got more power - increased to 490bhp - and the well regarded 6spd automatic gearbox from the Continental GT. 
Thanks to the very low mileage and impeccable service and maintenance records, it arrives with us in very good condition. It is one of the best we have seen recently. 
The recent maintenance by specialist Wraith Continental is thoroughly reassuring. It shows regular servicing irrespective of mileage plus attention to any and every minor repair requirement. The MOT history is similarly impressive with few advisories and regular passes since 2012. 
Last serviced by March 2024 by Wraith and equipped with a long, advisory-free MOT, it is both resplendent and ready to indulge the buyer.

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.

Anti-sniping

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.

Pre-authorisation

We may hold a pre-authorisation charge on your card until the end of the auction when the hold will be cancelled. If you win, we'll take a security deposit which counts towards the payment for the vehicle and isn't any extra cost to you.

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.
