Frankfurt 2015: Bentley Bentayga knows how to create a buzz

By ,

The all-new Bentley Bentayga made its highly anticipated debut during Media Days at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show. While the company provided plenty of details about its first-ever SUV in recent weeks, the launch still generated quite a buzz. After all, we’re talking about the fastest, most powerful, and most exclusive SUV on the planet.

Inside the handcrafted cabin (in pure Bentley tradition) is a world-class mix of leather, wood, and metallic accents. Elsewhere, the long, sleek hood conceals a 6.0L W12 engine that produces 608 horsepower and allows a top speed of 301 km/h.

“The Bentayga is truly the Bentley of SUVs. It redefines luxury in the SUV sector and offers a genuine Bentley experience in any environment, thanks to a combination of unparalleled attention to detail, go-anywhere ability and cutting-edge technology,” said Wolfgang Dürheimer, chairman and chief executive of Bentley Motors. “With this extraordinary car we are looking forward to an exciting period of strong growth and sales success for Bentley. The Bentayga is the next step in our brand’s bold future.”

Pricing and global availability have yet to be announced, so you still have time to buy a lottery ticket and pray that you can get your hands on one.
