Fresh of its world debut at the IAA Frankfurt Motor Show 2015, a completely undisguised Bentley Bentayga has been snapped at the Nurburgring. It remains to be seen if this particular Bentayga was at the famed German circuit for a final round of testing or if the British company simply decided to show off its latest creation to enthusiasts at ‘Green Hell’.
Whatever the case may be, this Bentayga looks to be identically specced to the show car at Frankfurt. That means it is painted in a stylish rose gold shade which works absolutely perfectly with the vehicle’s design. It is also riding on a set of silver wheels.
So far, only the range-topping model of the Bentayga range has been introduced. It utilises the Volkswagen Group’s brand new twin-turbocharged 6.0-litre W12 engine delivering 600 hp and 663 lb-ft of torque. This makes for a sprint to 96 km/h in just 4 seconds as well as a top speed of 301 km/h.
Inside, the Bentley Bentayga is exceptionally luxurious, even more so than other existing Bentley models. It features a full-length panoramic sunroof as well as a large 8-inch infotainment system with a touchscreen and 60GB harddrive. Elsewhere is a 10.2-inch removable Bentley tablet running on Android and complete with 4G and WiFi for the rear passengers. There are three different audio systems available with one unit from Naim a 1950 Watt system complete with 18 speakers.
The Bentayga is the world’s fastest and most expensive SUV.
