Here's Why Buying A Bentley Bentayga Is Going To Be Insanely Hard


Despite its $230,000 base price.

It’s the SUV that nobody directly asked for and yet Bentley can’t build them fast enough. Meet the all-new 2017 Bentley Bentayga, an SUV with a base price of $229,100 that once you add just a few features, such as $5,715 Orange Flame exterior paint, quickly reaches well over $250,000. Heck, Bentley will be more than willing to customize a Bentayga to the customer’s desire – assuming they’ve got the dough. Powered by a 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged W12 with 600 hp and 664 lb-ft, power is sent to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic.

And yes, the Bentayga has some respectable off-roading capabilities, so this isn’t just some rich soccer mom thing. But soccer moms who drive one will get their kids to practice damn fast. Try a 0-60 mph time of only 3.5 seconds. Running a bit late? No problem-o. Top speed is 184 mph.

To say we were impressed with the new Bentayga is an understatement. It’s simply magical and there's already a backlog of orders. It’s causing ripple effects by forcing the likes of Rolls-Royce and Range Rover to respond, and do so fast. But can they? Expectations are without question ridiculously high. Special thanks to Los Gatos Luxury Cars for letting us film the car.
