Bentley launches the Bentayga

Brit luxury car marque Bentley Motors has a new SUV in town. Dubbed the Bentley Bentayga, this stylish piece of work is touted to become one of the fastest, most powerful SUVs in the world.

Designed, engineered and handcrafted in Crewe, Cheshire in England, the Bentayga is made up of equal parts of elegance and muscle. On the outside, it sports four round LED headlamps that flank its large trademark matrix grille, flushed with its aluminium front fenders. The body is crafted with lightweight aluminium, with a panoramic glass roof as a standard. Inside, the cabin is decked in metal, wood and leather detailing that stay true to its philosophy of offering modern British luxury.

Additionally, the car is equipped with an all-new robust twin-turbocharged W12 powertrain. This 12-cylinder engine lets the car hit ultra-luxurious levels of power (at 447kW) and torque (at 900Nm). Furthermore, it is able to complete the century sprint in a whopping 4.1 seconds and hit a top speed of 301kph — quite a feat for a car from this category.

"The Bentayga is truly the Bentley of SUVs," says Wolfgang Dürheimer, chairman and chief executive of Bentley Motors. It redefines luxury in the SUV sector and offers a genuine Bentley experience in any environment, thanks to a combination of unparalleled attention to detail, go-anywhere ability and cutting-edge technology. With this extraordinary car, we are looking forward to an exciting period of strong growth and sales success for Bentley."

The Bentley Bentayga made its debut this month at the IAA Frankfurt Show with deliveries expected to commence early next year.
