The proceeds will benefit children's education.
Production is well under way for the long wheelbase 2023 Bentley Bentayga EWB, and the first bespoke example was just auctioned off for charity at the Naples Winter Wine Festival in Florida. The Bentayga EWB, which retails for $226,900 (not including the bespoke touches), raised $1 million out of the $25 million for the auction benefitting underserved children in Florida's Collier county. Proceeds from the sale went to Naples Children & Education Foundation.
The Bentayga EWB is already a luxurious SUV, adding over seven inches of space between the front and rear axle compared to a standard Bentayga. This particular example was the extra special Bentayga Extended Wheelbase Azure, which tacks on an additional $15,030 to the price.
The car came equipped with the new Airline Seat Specification, 22-ways adjustment, an auto climate sensing system, and advanced postural adjustment technology. It's finished in Snow Quartz (white) on the exterior paired with a stunning Mulliner White/Beluga Black interior featuring Amethyst (purple) accents on the gear lever, door pockets, piping, and stitching.
"I'm extremely proud of Bentley Naples and our Mulliner team for creating this unique car to support a wonderful and worthy cause," said Christophe Georges, President and CEO of Bentley Americas. "Giving back and establishing purpose within the community is all part of our wider definition of sustainability."
"We choose to support the Naples Winter Wine Festival because this event is one of the largest fundraisers in the country and all the donations raised stay in Collier County and go directly to the children that need it most," said Jason Reidel, Managing Partner of Bentley Naples. "Their website reads that over 300,000 lives have been impacted since the festival has been implemented. We are helping to change the lives of hundreds of thousands of people and we hope to continue to partner with NCEF not only as a corporate partner, but also in curating exciting lots for many years to come."
In addition to the car itself, the winning couple receives an invitation to the Extraordinary Journey UK program, a tour of the Bentley factory in Crewe, whiskey tasting at the Macallan Estate, plus a four-night/five-day tour through England and Scotland and a bespoke trip extension with a curated London experience and chauffeur drive.
