SUV enthusiasts, oligarchs, sheikhs and even royalty is waiting with baited breath for Bentley’s upcoming SUV the Bentayga. The Crewe based manufacturer today debuted the ‘Bentayga first edition’ which would be limited to just 608 units globally. Under the hood will be the same power packed V12 twin turbo 608 hp engine that offers a top speed of 187 mph and zips the SUV to 60 mph from a standstill in under 4.1 seconds. But this is where the similarity ends as the First edition will come with a host of unique components which include the Union Jack badging, illuminated treadplates and massive 22 inch black painted polished wheels. It would be made available only in ten exclusive colors so even the untrained eye can spot it approaching from far away.
The luxurious cabin will also have its share of exclusivity which includes contrast stitching on the finest leather, ‘Diamond within Diamond’ quilting and even bespoke ambient lighting. First edition customers will also be receiving a special edition Breitling watch, made exclusively for the Bentayga buyers can choose between three chronographs which includes a chronomat for the ladies. Only a true Bentley fan would be ditching a Patek or a Breguet for this one. The first edition enters into production on Friday with each costing $297,000. While the entry level will go into sale next year will retail for $229,000.
