The Bentley Bentayga, the world’s most powerful SUV, is all set to be launched in India on April 22, reports Autocar India. The British luxury marque’s first ever SUV will be primarily targeting existing Bentley customers. It has no direct rivals until the Rolls Royce Cullinan enters the scene.
The uber-luxury SUV is powered by the familiar 6-litre W12 twin-turbo petrol engine which produces a colossal 608 PS and 900 Nm of torque. All that potential is transferred to wheels via an 8-speed automatic transmission and an advanced all-wheel drive system. With a top-speed of 301 kmph, the Bentayga is the only production SUV to have breached the 300 kmph mark.
The SUV features a boxy exterior design which was redesigned after the original EXP-9F concept received widespread negative feedback. The Bentayga is full of quintessential Bentley design elements like a handcrafted front grille, quad-headlamps, a massive nose and muscular rear haunches.
The opulent interior is appointed with handcrafted leather, wooden veneer, floating digital instrument console, exquisitely detailed metallic elements, diamond quilted seats with 22-way adjustment, rear entertainment package and so on. Like other Bentleys, the customers can personalize their cars to a great extent.
The Bentley Bentayga is estimated to be priced close to INR 4 crore (ex-showroom) before you start ticking off the option boxes.
