With no hint of reluctance, Bentley calls the 2018 Bentley Bentayga, the “fastest, most powerful, most luxurious and most exclusive SUV in the world.” The Bentayga comes with a torque of 600 hp, 664 lb- Ft and a maximum speed of 200 km / h. It can tow 7,700 pounds, have four ride heights and nearly 10 inches of ground clearance. It has Tesla-type autonomous driving electronics, the world’s first 48-volt car system and 90 separate ECUs processing 100 million lines of code.
2018 Bentley Bentayga Interior
Inside are the leathers of four cows, 15 separate pieces of veneer, mineral glass mineral coatings, machined aluminum accents and tolerances measured to the tenth of a millimeter. All this is before the options; They may include an automatic Breitling Mulliner Tourbillon watch in place of the standard clock, solid gold cast with a diamond bead handle, always priced but definitely in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. Just for the watch.
This superlative inventory provides only part of the reason why 2018 Bentley Bentayga is as safe as the auto can deliver. The rest is that the sky no longer falls. The great recession is mostly a memory and the 1% 100 resumes. Good sales of luxury have increased steadily throughout the last 18 months. The Bentayga starts just in time and ahead of a range of ultra-lux VRUs (confirmed by Lamborghini and Maserati, widely believed by Rolls-Royce).
Traditionalists may be mocking the idea of a 2018 Bentley Bentayga SUV, as they did at a BMW or Porsche or Jaguar SUV, but the reality remains: for much of the world’s buying Cars, large and flying SUVs symbolize success, success, status – not a coupe or a sedan, no matter how many cows the furnishings require. Car companies built on the idea of demonstrating success, success and status can no longer ignore SUVs.
2018 Bentley Bentayga Exterior
The 2018 Bentley Bentayga is linked to other SUVs of major VW group companies, including Porsche Cayenne and Audi Q7. But about 17 feet long, the Bentley is longer, wider and heavier than him. Its exterior metal is aluminum, with the Bentley Superform process (pressed with high pressure air heated to 950 degrees) producing abrupt creases. Some structural elements are made of steel for deformation and impact protection properties. Bentley engineers say Bentayga’s side panel is the world’s largest monoblock aluminum print, and its intensive aluminum construction saves 520 pounds compared to the steel construction.
The roof panel is 60% glass. The Bentayga LED headlights are on the surface of the seamless front end, flanking Bentley’s large bold matrix grid. There is a familiar feeding line along each flank, familiar, severe folds in the rear hips of Bentayga and a graph B in each split rear light. The wheels measure 20 to 22 inches and an optional styling package adds carbon fiber body elements. Anyway, the Bentayga looks like a Bentley – a great Bentley with an optional roof rail.
