- First 608 Bentaygas to be exclusively designed and highly equipped
- Bentayga is the most powerful, most luxurious, most exclusive and fastest SUV in the world
- Limited edition celebrates the creation of an all-new luxury SUV market segment
- Each owner to receive one of three special-edition Breitling chronographs
(Los Angeles/Crewe, 16 November 2015) Bentley Motors is debuting the Bentayga First Edition to a select group of VIP customers tonight at the iconic Sunset Marquis Hotel, Los Angeles. The exclusive limited edition of the most powerful SUV in production is restricted to just 608 cars globally.
The eye-catching specification with exclusive details and unique components demonstrates the Bentayga’s abilities to the fullest. The First Edition’s unique design includes Union Jack badging, illuminated treadplates and 22” black painted and polished wheels. Just ten exterior colours are offered, highlighting the exclusivity of the model.
Inside the modern, luxurious cabin the ‘Diamond within Diamond’ quilting, bespoke ambient lighting, Union Jack fascia badging, unique contrast stitching and embroidered seats enrich the look and feel of this special series still further. The detailing in metal, wood and leather – including meticulous tolerances between elements of trim – sets a new standard in automotive design.
Bentley is producing 608 Bentayga First Edition models as this number marks the metric power output of the Bentayga 608 PS (600 bhp / 447kW) and 900 Nm (663 lb. ft).
Built in Crewe, an all-new twin-turbocharged 6.0-litre W12 engine is at the heart of the new Bentayga. The mighty 12-cylinder unit combines efficiency and refinement with ultra-luxurious levels of power and torque. With a 0-60 mph time of 4.0 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.1 seconds) and a top speed of 187 mph (301 km/h), the Bentayga is the world’s most powerful and fastest SUV.
A total of 608 units will be made for the first edition, 75 of them to be sold in the US market.
Bentley predicted that 3,500 Bentaygas would be sold in 2016. When the entire production volume for the year sold out in advance, production was increased to 5,000 units. These additional 1,500 units were also reserved by buyers in advance. The Bentayga has an order backlog that stretches into 2017; in some markets, the Bentayga is sold out for the next two years.
The Bentley Bentayga, despite its high price tag, has been an unprecedented sales success for Bentley and is now by far Bentley’s most popular model.
Kevin Rose, Board Member for Sales and Marketing, Aftersales, said: “With the First Edition we have created the ultimate expression of the Bentayga’s spirit. It is equipped with an array of striking features that celebrate both the pioneering nature of the Bentayga and its unique abilities.”
Bentayga Edition Breitling Watches
Each of the First Edition customers will receive a unique Breitling watch to complement their new, luxury SUV.
In tribute to the launch of the new Bentley Bentayga SUV, Breitling created three high-performance special-edition chronographs: the Emergency, which features an integrated dual frequency personal locator beacon; Cockpit B50 – with its electronic multifunction calibre; and the automatic Chronomat 38, which is designed for women.
These three Bentley Bentayga Edition models share several signature features: an officially chronometer-certified Breitling movement; an original and powerful design with an all-black case; a black mother-of-pearl dial; bronzetoned hands matching the livery of the first Bentayga presented to the public; and a rubber strap matching certain key interior elements.
These chronographs will be available later as optional equipment for Bentayga customers.
