Characteristics and peculiarities

Backgrounds of this model
- The Bentley Arnage (Red label) Long wheelbase is a Bentley Arnage Red label with a 25 cm (10 inch) extended wheelbase.
- The extra length is added to the car at its rear doors and its C-pillar (this style of saloon stretch is sometimes called "double-cut" in the United States). With the standard Arnage model, the rear wheel wells butt up against the rear door frames, but with the RL they are a few inches further back. The overall effect is a larger rear area inside the car.
- Available only as a bespoke ("Mulliner") model, each RL is customised to the desires of the buyer. Even several armoured elements could be delivered.
- The Arnage RL would also present a credible challenge to BMW's attempts to revive the Rolls-Royce brand with its planned new model, the Phantom.
- Although one car was made in model year 2000, the model was launched in model year 2001.

General characteristics
- The suspension was retuned for the added weight, allowing the larger car to still handle well.
- The engine was a better version of the 6750 cc V8 than the version that was used in the Arnage Red label. It featured Bosch Motronic ME7.1.1 engine management replacing the old Zytek system, and two small Garrett T3 turbochargers replacing the single large T4. This new engine developed 399 bhp and 835 Nm and was ready for meeting all future emissions requirements.
