Tuned Bentley Bentayga In Exclusive Shadow Gold Not For The Faint Hearted

Brabus sub-brand Startech first came up with their upgrades for the Bentley Bentayga in mid-2016, and since then, we’ve seen quite a few cars wearing the tuner’s exterior kit.

This one is equipped not just with Startech’s custom front and rear bumpers, but also features the widebody extension, lowering kit, valve-controlled exhaust and those massive 23″ forged Monostar S wheels.

Yet, what really makes it stand out from other Bentaygas is the exclusive Shadow Gold finish around the grille, on the bonnet, roof and C-pillars. The wheels are also finished in Gold, as are the air vent surrounds and trunk lid badge.

Other distinctive details would be the honeycomb lower grille inserts and integrated carbon fiber diffuser at the rear. If you really want to go all out, Startech will gladly sell you 51,110 euro’s worth of optional extras, which includes the widebody kit, carbon fiber elements, custom wheels and so on.

As for power, while the tuner can squeeze more juice out of the 6.0-liter twin turbo W12, the Bentayga already comes with 608 PS (600 HP) and 900 Nm (663 lb-ft) of its own.
