What would you do if you had Rs 4 crores and loved big, fast SUV’s? Look no further, this Bentley is for you. Bentley has just launched its flagship SUV Bentley Bentayga in India. This car is one of the pinnacles of automobile excellence. This Ultra-Luxury automobile ticks all the boxes – may it be Luxurious Design, Performance or Technology.
Bentayga’s exterior design features an intelligent mix of materials, with an advanced aluminium exterior, covering a structure that blends aluminium castings with high-strength steel. Each curve and line is defined by Bently’s signature sharp lines and seamless surfaces. This is particularly noticeable in the front wings where an innovative superforming technique creates the muscular powerline that runs the length of the flank and over the wheel arch.
On the other hand, the Interior design is handcrafted in Crewe. The vehicle is elegant and refined, finished with the most exquisite materials. The entire cabin is flooded with light from the panoramic roof, adding to the sense of space, comfort and luxury. The cockpit-like interior design is based on double Bentley wings, giving it balance and symmetry with a unique sense of calm. The beautiful wood veneers are carefully selected, cut and matched to create a seamless flow of high-gloss wood around the entire interior. Solid metal detailing with precision finishes add another dimension.
Audio System: Bentayga sports the Naim audio system that takes in-car music playback to another level. Driven by a 1950 watt amplifier, it is the most powerful audio system available in an SUV. The twenty speakers include nine combined mid-range and tweeters and a 300-watt sub-woofer.
Rear Passenger Entertainment: The rear headrests feature two 10.2” entertainment tablets that connect you with the vehicle’s entertainment systems. With the convenience of a mobile tablet, one can tap into everything the car’s infotainment system has to offer, or lose them self in their own world with the Bluetooth headphones. It also comes with a 8” Touchscreen to display key information of your choice, like the home screen on your smartphone.
Driver Assistance: Bentayga features more than ten new Driver Assistance systems for urban driving, longer distance touring and more robust off-roading. Head-up display, where important information is projected onto the windscreen so the driver can keep eyes on the road. Night Vision can recognise animals and people, irrespective of however dark it is outside. Along with Blind Spot Assist and Traffic Sign Recognition, all of these technologies are born of ‘intelligent functionality’.
Navigation: Bentayga’s Navigation system is enhanced by Online Real Time Traffic Information (RTTI), which provides a live view of current traffic conditions. A red, amber and green colour code is overlaid on the maps to deliver a clear and immediate view of potential traffic issues.
The all-new Bentley W12 petrol engine with Variable Displacement is the most technologically advanced 12-cylinder in the world. Every part of the engine has been redesigned for performance and efficiency, with the first combination of direct-injection and port-injection technologies in a production engine from Bentley.
Bentayga is extraordinarily powerful, taking you from a standing start to 100 km/h in just 4.1 seconds, with a top speed of 301 km/h. But it’s not all unadulterated speed. The new W12 engine delivers 5-90% torque within 1.1 seconds.
Only 1% of the Super Rich may buy it, but it is definitely a piece of automobile brilliance worth admiring.
