2017 Bentley Bentayga to be the fastest SUV in the world
The first ever Bentley SUV, named the Bentayga, is going to be the fastest SUV in the world. Powered by Bentley`s new W12 engine the car produces 600bhp and has a top speed of 301kmph. This makes it the fastest (and probably the most luxurious) SUV in the world.
The sports utility vehicle makes its debut at the Frankfurt motor show and the company will start deliveries early next year. The entire car is crafted in aluminum, and the side profile is the largest single piece aluminum pressing in the automotive industry. The Bentley Bentayga uses traditional Bentley styling, with sharp Bentley lines and smooth curves all over.
The front end of the SUV has the huge trademark Bentley grille accompanied by 4 huge circular headlamps, which are completely made up of LED’s. A skid plate under the side of the front bumper makes sure the car is ready to take on any type of terrain. The taillights have a special “B” illumination graphic, which gives the car its night time signature look.
In the interiors of the Bentayga you’d find a panoramic sunroof, handcrafted wood and leather finishing all over and an amazingly designed cabin. The panoramic sunroof can be obscured by the use of an electronic roller blind.
The alloy wheels have been specially designed for the Bentley Bentayga and are available in a number of sizes. Bentley offers a pallet of 17 colors and 90 hues to choose from for the exterior paint.
The front seats of the vehicle have a 22-way adjustable setting and can be altered as per the driver’s preference. Not only that but you get adjustable backrest bolsters with a six program massage system and an option for seat heating and ventilation. The car comes with an option of being a 4-seater or 5-seater. In the 4-seater version, the back seats get the same treatment as the front seats. The color of the interiors can been changed as per preference and everything from the seats to the doormat are customizable.
The 7” touchscreen entertainment system comes with a 60GB hard-drive and you have three sound systems to choose from namely – Bentley Standard Audio, Bentley Signature Audio and Naim for Bentley Premium Audio.
Propelling the Bentley Bentayga is an all-new 6-litre W12 engine which bangs out 600bhp. This motor makes the Bentayga go from 0-100 in 4 seconds and the luxury SUV has a top speed of 301 kmph. The engine has been mated to an updated 8-speed transmission and all-wheel drive system.
“The Bentayga is truly the Bentley of SUVs. 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 Bentayga is the next step in our brand’s bold future.” Is what the chairman and chief executive of Bentley Motors, Mr Wolfgang Dürheimer, had to say.
