Derek debuts the Bentley Bentayga First Edition in Beverly Hills
Derek, in his role as Bentley Brand Ambassador, alongside Kevin Rose, Bentley’s Member of the Board for Sales, Marketing and Aftersales and Sang Yup Lee, Bentley Head of Exterior and Advanced Design debuted the Bentley Bentayga First Edition to a select group of VIP customers at the iconic Sunset Marquis Hotel in Los Angeles. The exclusive limited edition of the most powerful SUV in production will be restricted to just 608 cars globally.
The eye-catching specification with exclusive details and unique components demonstrates the Bentayga’s abilities to the fullest. The First Edition’s unique design includes Union Jack badging, illuminated treadplates and 22” black painted and polished wheels. Just ten exterior colours are offered, highlighting the exclusivity of the model.
Inside the modern, luxurious cabin the ‘Diamond within Diamond’ quilting, bespoke ambient lighting, Union Jack fascia badging, unique contrast stitching and embroidered seats enrich the look and feel of this special series still further. The detailing in metal, wood and leather – including meticulous tolerances between elements of trim – sets a new standard in automotive design.
Bentley is producing 608 Bentayga First Edition models as this number marks the metric power output of the Bentayga 608 PS (600 bhp / 447kW) and 900 Nm (663 lb. ft).
Built in Crewe, an all-new twin-turbocharged 6.0-litre W12 engine is at the heart of the new Bentayga. The mighty 12-cylinder unit combines efficiency and refinement with ultra-luxurious levels of power and torque. With a 0-60 mph time of 4.0 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.1 seconds) and a top speed of 187 mph (301 km/h), the Bentayga is the world’s most powerful and fastest SUV. Each of the First Edition customers will receive a unique Breitling watch to complement their new, luxury SUV.
Kevin Rose said: “With the First Edition we have created the ultimate expression of the Bentayga’s spirit. It is equipped with an array of striking features that celebrate both the pioneering nature of the Bentayga and its unique abilities.”
