Four coachbuilt Bentley Arnage RL limousines personally
commissioned by Mr. Steve Wynn stand ready for guests
outside his new luxury resort, Wynn Las Vegas
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (May 23, 2005) – For more than 85 years, Bentley Motors has crafted some of the most extraordinary automobiles in the world. Now with the grand opening of Wynn Las Vegas, Bentley Motors has helped mark the milestone by delivering four personally commissioned Arnage RL limousines to the luxury destination resort for use in chauffeuring high-rolling guests and VIPs.
“Bentley Motors is very pleased to provide the Arnage RL fleet to Wynn Las Vegas for use by their distinguished guests,” says Dr. Franz-Josef Paefgen, Chairman and CEO of Bentley Motors, Inc. “We’re very happy to be working with Mr. Wynn in what looks to be one of the finest resort destinations in the world.”
To create the most opulent sporting saloon possible for Wynn Las Vegas, Bentley Motors enlisted the help of Mulliner, the personal commissioning department at the factory in Crewe, England. The four identical Arnage RL limousines by Bentley Mulliner collectively total $1,080,000. Each coach built limousine is handcrafted down to the smallest detail, all carried out with the careful instructions of Steve Wynn himself in mind.
The Arnage RL is Bentley’s most exclusive edition, built only to special order, with less than 10 sold each year in the North American market. Virtually each car built is distinguished by the individual owners’ personal requirements, plus the unsurpassed quality only Bentley Motors can produce. Each Arnage RL is constructed at the main Bentley works, and then transferred to Mulliner. There, with the meticulous attention to detail for which Bentley Motors is famously known, Mulliner completes the fitment of each car’s custom coachwork and distinctive amenities.
Identifiable by the subtle Mulliner badge on the front wing, each Arnage RL by Mulliner scheduled for delivery before the opening of Wynn Las Vegas, features a beautiful glossy black “beluga” exterior paint. The immaculate exterior is paired with a sumptuous cream magnolia leather interior, and magnificent walnut burr trim throughout the elegant cabin. Each Arnage RL by Mulliner enlists the work of more than 110 skilled artisans, and represents more than 280 hours of dedicated craftsmanship lavished on each car.
To further accent the pristine, bespoke interior, each Arnage RL by Mulliner boasts a similarly sumptuous cocktail cabinet, a wine cooler for passenger refreshment along with the world famous winged Bentley marque hand stitched into each seat facing. Two 13-inch LCD screens have also been crafted into each seat back for passengers to view television and DVDs to enhance their personal riding pleasure.
Wynn Las Vegas’ fleet of four Arnage RL limos represents approximately 40% of the model’s total North American build for 2005. While the cost for each vehicle is more than a quarter of a million dollars at $270,000, the Arnage RL indisputably provides outstanding value in the High Luxury Sector (HLS), especially when comparing the Bentley against the $320,000 Rolls-Royce Phantom and the $357,000 Mercedes Maybach.
The four Bentley Arnage RL limousines by Mulliner will be delivered to Wynn Las Vegas by dealer principal Dan Towbin of Bentley Las Vegas.
