Based on ballet moves
The US loves its luxury SUVs. Driving around in a Cadillac Escalade or Audi Q7 really tells the world that you've made it. Do you know who else loves big flashy SUVs? Our dear friends, the Russians. If you ever visit Moscow, you'll be amazed at just how many blacked-out Mercedes-Benz G-Glass and Land Rover Range Rovers are cruising around. Not to be left out of the party, Bentley launched its first-ever SUV, the Bentley Bentayga back in 2015, and has proven to be wildly successful in the Russian Federation. We've seen some highly modified Bentaygas over the last few years but no US-specific special editions have come to light. The Russian market on the other hand is getting its own limited edition 'Russian Heritage' line, and it looks awesome.
The limited run of Russian Heritage models is the first project of its kind in the country and is offered in a generous six trim levels, all united by one of Russia's greatest passions: ballet. The special editions are named Arabesque, Adagio, Allegro, Fouette, Pirouette and Royal. The names take after ballet movements. Bentley describes these models as exuding "swiftness and speed, breathtaking refinement of every movement, phenomenal strength and beauty."
The special editions differ from their standard sibling by adding a set of unique 22-inch wheels, custom welcome lighting that displays "Russian Heritage", four interior upholstery options, and a number of unique color schemes, including a two-tone paint option.
Underneath all the decadence, the Bentayga Russian Heritage Edition cars are still powered by the same range of engines, the most powerful of which is the twin-turbo 6.0-liter W12 engine producing a massive 626 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to all fours via a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission. Pricing for these special editions varies according to trim, but a standard Bentayga costs around $285,180 in Russia.
