Exotic Car Of The Week - 035
After a much needed week's break over Christmas, we are back this week in the latest installment of our 'Exotic Car Of The Week' series where we briefly review some of our favorite vehicles that we offer our clients around the world. This week we're taking a look at the incredibly sleek Bentley Bentayga. Although the Bentayga is classified as an SUV - (which we certainly don't deny), it still has the same iconic look and feel as most other vehicles in the Bentley range (GTC, Mulsanne, Flying Spur). After all, they are mostly all very spacious, prestigious vehicles.
Bentley launched the world's first 'hyper-luxury SUV' back at the 2015 Frankfurt fashion show, joining its exquisite lineup of elite luxury cars - and boy did it not disappoint. The top model Bentayga boasts a goliath 6.0-liter W12 engine that churns out 600HP - making it easily one of the most powerful SUVs in the world (comfortably 1st at the time of its release).
When it comes to comparing versatile sports utility vehicles, the Bentley Bentayga wins the competition most times out of 10. From its powerful, all-purpose, and all-terrain driving modes, the Bentayga offers exceptional performance and an intense driving experience that is difficult for most luxury car manufacturers to match. When it comes to the design of the vehicle it is refreshing to see how its immense muscularity is balanced so well by its elegant features. As stated by Bentley's head of interior design Darren Day - 'luxury doesn't end where the road does'. True to this, every inch of the hand-built Bentayga oozes class and luxury - both inside and out.
The Mulliner Aesthetics are rampant in the interior of Bentayga. From diamond-quilted seats featuring embroidered Bentley emblems to fine sports pedals, carpets, and color combinations of the owner's choice, the interior of Bentayga is absolute heaven when it comes to luxury. The innovative event seats bring an element of royalty for any special occasion. The seat is patented to be sliding and folding in nature and is adorned with diamond quilting and leather finishes. Enjoy a grandstand view as a passenger of the car while the tailgate shades and built-in stage lighting create one of the most dramatic effects you'll ever experience in a vehicle.
Performance and Drivetrain
The luxurious Bentley Bentayga boasts the mighty power of a 12-cylinder W12 petrol engine. This 6.0-liter handcrafted engine can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (0-100km/h) in only 4.1 seconds, with a top speed of 187mph (307 km/h) which is sufficient (at least by our standards) to get the adrenaline pumping through your veins - as well as from A - B should you wish.
