Bentley Will Soon Unleash 10 Limited-Edition Bentayga “Pikes Peak” SUV’s

High-end luxury automaker Bentley will soon be unleashing a limited-edition SUV range to celebrate a recent milestone achievement. A Bentley Bentayga – driven by two-time champion Rhys Millen — took to the picturesque Pikes Peak mountain range with the aim of claiming the fastest time put forth by any and all SUV’s before it. Clocking in at a time of just 10:49.9 proved good enough to claim top spot, earning the honors of fastest production SUV at Pikes Peak.

With this win in hand, 10 W12-powered Bentayga “Pikes Peak” editions will come to the forefront, some of which will feature a “Beluga Black” paint job, while others will receive the “Radium” treatment. Both versions, however, will come equipped with black gloss fittings, a carbon fiber splitter, side skirts, diffuser and a rear spoiler, amongst others. The limited-edition Bentley Bentayga will be available for order in the U.S. and Europe later this August.

Elsewhere in the automotive world, RM Sotheby’s listed this ultra-rare McLaren F1 through its new private sales division.

Bentley Grand Convertible

Bentley lengthens its legacy just in time for the Los Angeles Auto Show as the heritage automaker unveils theGrand Convertible for a possible 2015 release. Interesting that a car intended to “signify Bentley’s intentions for the future” would so closely reference the Mulsanne – one of the brand’s longstanding flagship models. The Grand Convertible adds a sportier, perhaps more laid-back air to this legacy, coming with a droptop that gaudily bares the car’s Beluga leather and burl walnut veneer interior. Underneath the hood, the Grand Converible boasts a 6.75 liter, 530 horsepower engine, making it not only a sophisticated ride, but an enticingly powerful one as well.
