If you’re interested in buying a Bentley but not interested in paying big money for a new one, you’ve come to the right place. I’ve rounded up a list of five cheap Bentley models currently listed for sale on Autotrader, all of which have depreciated quite a bit (or, in the case of the Bentayga, quite a bit for just one year on the road). These are the cheapest Bentley models for sale on Autotrader — but, just remember, when it comes to luxury cars, "cheap" is a relative term: These Bentley models might be cheap to buy, but they probably won’t be cheap to own and maintain.
The cheapest Bentley on Autotrader is this 1992 Turbo RL model, which is offered by a private seller in El Paso, Texas, for just $10,000. No, it isn’t a parts car or a non-running example — that’s just what old 1990s Bentley models go for after depreciation has done its damage. This particular Turbo RL has 71,100 miles on the odometer, and it’s finished in black with a black leather interior.
The cheapest Bentley Arnage on Autotrader is listed for just $23,500 — and it’s in good company, with several more listed in the low- to mid-$20,000 range. This was Bentley’s flagship vehicle for about 10 years in the late 1990s and early 2000s, and it’s hard to imagine it’s dropped in value from an original sticker price of around $200,000 all the way to just $23,500. It’s offered by a private seller in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, with 65,000 miles.
The Bentley Azure was the brand’s full-size convertible model — a segment of the market where Bentley no longer exists after the smaller Continental GTC took over for the Azure. Still, used Azure models are pretty desirable, and this 2000 example is proof: It’s the cheapest Azure on Autotrader, and yet the asking price is twice that of the Arnage listed above. It’s offered with 31,100 miles from Autos of Palm Beach in West Palm Beach, Florida, for $44,990.
OK, so this one isn’t cheap, but it’s still the cheapest Bentayga on Autotrader — and its list price has shown that values have already declined considerably. The Bentayga has only been out for about a year, and yet this one is down about $75,000 from its original MSRP, with an asking price of just $171,000 after around 8,800 miles of use. It’s offered by a private seller in Las Vegas, and it’s finished in blue with a cream-white interior.
The cheapest Bentley Continental GT is this 2005 model, which is listed for just $29,000. Given the particulars, that’s no surprise: It hails from one of the car’s earliest model years, and the current mileage is around 140,000, which surely makes it one of the highest-mileage Bentley Continental GT models in existence. If you’re interested in a $29,000 used Bentley with a 12-cylinder engine, this one is offered by a private seller in Orange County, California.
