Bentley Parades Bentayga First Edition To VIP Crowd In LA

The very first production Bentley Bentayga has already been spoken for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, but the Crewe based carmaker will turn the next 608 units into First Edition specials.

Bentley showed the new Bentayga First Edition to a “select group of VIP customers” tonight at the Sunset Marquis Hotel in Los Angeles.

Available globally, the production run of 608 units marks the metric power output of the Bentayga’s twin-turbocharged 6.0-litre W12 engine that develops 608PS (600hp) together with 900Nm (663lb-ft) of torque, for a 0 to 100 km/h sprint in 4.1 seconds (0-60mph in 4.0 sec) and a top speed of 301 km/h (187 mph). 

What separates the First Edition from the regular Bentaygas that will follow are some unique design cues on the outside, including Union Jack badging, illuminated tread plates and 22-inch black painted and polished wheels. Only ten exterior colors will be on offer.

Inside, the limited production model features ‘Diamond within Diamond’ quilted seats and door panels, bespoke ambient lighting, Union Jack fascia badging, bespoke contrast stitching and embroidered seats. Also according to Bentley, “the detailing in metal, wood and leather – including meticulous tolerances between elements of trim – sets a new standard in automotive design”.

And just to seal the deal, Bentley is throwing in a unique Breitling watch, available in three different versions with signature features: the “Emergency” that gets integrated dual frequency personal locator beacon, the “Cockpit B50 “ with an electronic multifunction caliber, and the automatic “Chronomat 38” designed for women.

Bentley said that these chronographs will be optionally available for Bentayga customers later on.
