Now, Bentley can not only boast about its luxurious designs, but also its record-breaking performance. This month, at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb near Colorado Springs, a Bentley Bentayga completed the 12.42-mile course in a mere 10 minutes and 49.9 seconds!
Rhys Millen, the award-winning driver during the competition, shared with the press, “What an incredible machine. To take a luxury SUV with minimal modifications and be able to drive up this course in under 11 minutes is a huge testament to the performance and level of engineering in the Bentayga. I had a great run – the car was planted all the way up and gave me the confidence I needed to push hard. I’m delighted to take the SUV record for Bentley and for everyone that’s been involved in this project.”
In celebration of this record, Bentley released a special edition Bentayga based on the model that competed at Pikes Peak. Learn more about ordering this model or a custom Bentley Bentayga at indiGO Auto Group’s Bentley Rancho Mirage on the Desert European Motorcars Campus.
