Inkas says its armored Bentayga has been designed to meet CEN 1063 BR6 ballistic standards and includes 360-degree, floor-to-roof coverage. Limited details are offered about what materials have been used in the project, but a press release from the company says the SUV can withstand fire from high-power rifles like AK47s and AR10s as well as the simultaneous detonation of two DM51 grenades placed under the vehicle’s floor.
The company’s Bentley Bentayga has also been equipped with emergency lights behind the front grille, a siren and a PA system. Customers wanting the ultimate in protection can also opt for tailpipe protection, a smoke screen system, electric door handles, and an engine bay fire suppression system.
Inkas was keen not to mess with the powertrain of the Bentayga and kept it standard meaning the 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged W12 continues to pump out 600 HP and 664 lb-ft (900 Nm) of torque sending power to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. All of the luxurious elements found within the cabin of the Bentayga have also been maintained.
Consequently, there is a head-up display, lane keep assist, 360-degree parking aid with park assist, configurable ambient interior lighted, a heated wood and leather steering wheel, pumping surround sound system, and massage seats.
We don’t have pricing details available for the armored Bentayga but can say with the utmost confidence that it isn’t cheap.
