Characteristics and peculiarities

Backgrounds of this model
- The Bentley Arnage was launched in 1998 with a 4398 cc V8 BMW engine. The model was provided with a green label but wasn't called Arnage Green label. In het middle of 1998 Bentley became the property of Volkswagen and the comeback of the 6750 cc V8 was planned. From model year 2000 on the Arnage was powered with this 6750 cc V8 engine again. This model with the 6750 cc V8 was called Arnage Red label. The BMW-engine stayed available besides the 6750 cc V8 and the model year 2000 version with the 4398 cc V8 BMW engine was called the Arnage Green label.
- In some sources a higher number of Arnages Green label are counted than the 7 on this page. In that case the Arnage 4.4L Birkin is counted as a Green label. The last 52 Green labels were called Arnage 4.4L Birkin.

General characteristics
- Are similar to the Bentley Arnage. The changes of the Red label are implemented to the Green label too with the exception of the engine and badges. These changes include:
- Park distance control to the front and rear.
- Stiffened front suspension, further strengthened body shell and bigger brakes.
- Redesigned seats.
- The rear bench relocated downwards and rearwards to provide 50 mm more legroom.
- Green badges.
- The lens covers for the headlights went from being glass to plastic.
