Official images of the first Bentley crossover in recent history have appeared today.
The guys from Bentley did not stand on ceremony with their competitors and decided to roll out the most powerful and fastest serial crossover in the world right off the bat!
The stylized B in the dimensions of the taillights ensured 100% recognition at any time of the day.
However, this is not surprising, because under the hood there is a twin-turbo monster W12 with a volume of 6.0 liters and a capacity of 600 hp. (447kW) with scrap torque - 900 Nm!
Acceleration to the first hundred - 4.1 seconds, i.e. similar to the newest X5M and X6M, and the maximum speed is 301 km / h!
The preliminary data does not say anything about the relationship with any of the VAGs, although I think that everyone already understands that this is another version of Tuareg, and no matter how inappropriate it sounds, there are indeed similarities. both outside and inside.
Speaking about the exterior of the car, it should be noted that it is more than original, especially the front of the car. I can't say that the front end of the Continental, stretched over the Tuareg, looks nice, but it performs the function of recognition, and apparently there was no need for another.
From behind, the Bentayga looks more traditional, and in general repeats the style of the passenger Flying Spur.
The profile of the car still looks like a crossed Continental with a Tuareg, and this is easy to understand if you cover the top of the car with your palm first, and then the bottom.
The interior is designed in the classic Bentley style, but every now and then the eye stumbles upon unification with the brothers in the concern.
Moreover, for the most part, Audi elements were borrowed, be it buttons on the steering wheel, a rear-view mirror, climate controllers with built-in displays, steering column levers and a light unit, and of course an information display in the instrument cluster.
The car was also awarded with removable tablets on the backs of the seats, taken from the new Ku7 and A4 and built on the basis of Android, and with Wi-Fi, 4G and Bluetooth.
The designers paid a lot of attention to pleasant little things, such as the Swiss Breitling watch on the crown of the torpedo (the Cayenne also has an optional chronometer there) …
… Or your own mini-bar in the trunk of your car!
The Drive Dynamics Mode knob is responsible for the choice of the driving mode, but in my opinion such an abundance of options is excessive, because the owner of an expensive Bentley crossover will be less interested in this.
The car is equipped with a navigation and multimedia system with a diagonal of the touch screen 8 "and built-in 60GB memory for data storage.
How well the designer Bentley managed to pull his image on a crossover carcass will be shown by the sales statistics, and this is quite a big intrigue for me, because it is unlikely that its price will be less than 10 million, but in fact, most likely everything is + -15 million, but will there be willing? I think, as a clientele, marketers of the brand primarily see their current customers driving around the wheel of an ordinary Continental coupe, but wanting to change to something new at the same time, and at the same time more universal.
