Bentley Bentayga Pikes Peak launched to celebrate record run

Bentley Bentayga Pikes Peak launched to celebrate record run”

Bentley announced the Pikes Peak Bentayga on Monday, which honors the record-setting nameplate with a design inspired by the actual Pikes Peak racer.

Two-time champion Rhys Millen launched up the mountain in 10:49.9, climbing almost 5,000 vertical feet and 12.42 miles with 156 corners at an average speed of 66.5 mph. Limited to just 10 models, the SUV will feature a number of interior and exterior design elements in the same shade of Radium green that covers the Pikes Peak auto. The front seats were replaced with racing versions while the rear seats were removed, and a roll cage and fire suppression system were installed.

No matter which exterior color the buyer chooses, 22-inch wheels fill out the wheelwells and feature a Beluga and Radium two-tone finish. Having been lent a road-going Bentayga out in the US, Millen developed his own, larger paddles for the eight-speed auto 'box at Crewe; he drove the vehicle in Sport and manual mode, and his own team will be leading the operation on the ground.

Bentley's Mulliner coachbuilder will build just 10 examples of the Pikes Peak Bentayga. Pirelli tires, an Akrapovic exhaust, and an optional Styling Specification Kit available to customers, which comes with a carbon fiber front splitter, diffuser, side skirts, and rear spoiler, was also fitted.

The colour scheme continues inside, only with the Radium replaced by Key Lime highlights on the Beluga leather. The auto gets a Pikes Peak logo on its carbonfibre fascia and numbered treadplates. It produces 600bhp and 664lb ft of torque, and drives all four wheels via a ZF eight-speed automatic gearbox. Add adaptive air suspension and the 48-volt active anti-roll bars to that picture, and your luxury SUV is ready for the world's toughest hillclimb. The special edition SUV also gains a sport exhaust and the Touring specification that includes a head-up display, night vision, adaptive cruise control, active lane control, and traffic assist that will operate the brakes, steering, and throttle in low-speed situations. Spoilsports. Just 10 Pikes Peak Editions will be made, with customers in the United States and Europe able to order one from August.
