Bentley has unveiled the world’s first ultra-luxe SUV, creating a new standard of opulence for the millionaires and billionaires out there who refuse to settle for anything but the best. The Bentley Bentayga is a “pinnacle, sector-defining new model” that combines unparalleled luxury with effortless performance and everyday usability.
With an all-new W12 powertrain, the Bentley Bentayga is the fastest, most powerful, most luxurious and most exclusive SUV in the world. It offers a true Bentley driving experience and showcases innovative technology features. The new twin-turbocharged 6-liter 12-cylinder engine puts out 600 horsepower and 633 pound-feet of torque, propelling the 5,240-pound SUV to 60 mph from a standstill in four seconds flat. For those of you keeping score, that’s one-tenth slower than the Porsche Carrera S!
Designed, engineered and handcrafted in Crewe, the Bentayga’s styling is pure Bentley. Sculptural with an elegant, timeless execution, it perfectly balances athleticism with confidence. From the four round LED headlamps and large matrix grille, to the distinctive power line and muscular haunches, the Bentley DNA is apparent throughout.
The Bentayga boasts the world’s finest automotive cabin, with unrivalled levels of precision. The detailing in metal, wood and leather – including meticulous tolerances between elements of trim – is the epitome of modern British luxury. This level of perfection is only achievable thanks to the exceptional craft and skill of Bentley’s colleagues in Crewe.
Bentley will be unveiling the Bentayga to the public at the IAA Frankfurt Show later this week, and customer deliveries will start in early 2016. No word on pricing just yet, but you know what they say: If you have to ask, you probably can’t afford it.
If you’re filthy rich with a taste for SUVs and looking for something a little more exclusive than a Range Rover or Mercedes G500 to play with, the Bentayga might be just what you’re looking for.
