Thats not an Arnage. Its a Rolls Royce Silver Seraph. It has the Spirit of Ecsatsy on the grille. And the wheels are of Rolls Royce.

Also here is a pic of the Rolls Royce at the Peddar Road pump :

No offence but i;m still not convinced its a Bentley cos Bentleys have a body colored surround on the grille. Atleast the Arnage has. The Silver Seraph has a chrome grille surround.

Ya but a 250mm diff between the Park Ward and the Silver Seraph. The PW is an extended / stretched version of the SS.

Bentleys always has chrome grills until 1982. In that generation as in the pic, they had chrome grills. They were the poor relation of Rolls Royce until they put the Turbo in. To distinguish the the cars, they got a painted grill. Ordinary Bentleys were renamed the Bentley Eigt and got a mesh grill.

After the turbo came, Bentley started outselling Rolls.
