Bentley announces Bentayga Pikes Peak Edition to honor record-setting run
28 June, 2018, 09:18
"Congratulations to all at Bentley Motorsport and to Rhys Millen and his team", Bentley's Member of the Board for Sales & Marketing, Chris Craft, said. And while you may mock, it did beat the record set by a Range Rover Sport in 2013 by a massive 1:45.6. "I'm delighted to take the SUV record for Bentley and for everyone that's been involved in this project".
Like the Pikes Peak challenger, no modification was made under the hood of the limited edition Bentayga.
Bentley's Pikes Peak Bentayga was a bog standard auto with just the addition of regulation safety kit, but its 600bhp, adaptive suspension, electric 48V anti-roll control and carbon ceramic brakes conspired to crush the previous record by almost two minutes, setting a time of 10:49.9 and averaging 66.5mph through Pikes Peak's 12.42 mile, 156 turn climb. Bentley has also given production spec Akrapovic sports exhaust and the Bentayga rides on performance Pirelli tyres.
This is the Bentley Bentayga Pikes Peak Limited Edition: a special which marks the SUV's record-breaking run on the gruelling Colorado mountain route. In every other way, the Pikes Peak auto is a standard Bentayga, finished in eye-catching Radium Satin paintwork accented by the all-black chrome and carbon fibre body kit provided by Bentley's Black Specification.
Bentley's "Black Specification" will see the chrome detailing replaced with gloss black and carbon fibre details, while Pikes Peak badges will also be added. A Pikes Peak logo has been added to the carbon fiber fascias and numbered Pikes Peak tread plates.
Inside, the Pikes Peak's black theme features more bright green highlights, appearing on the door and dash trims, the seat stitching and floor mat piping.
Additional tweaks to the adaptive air suspension and a 48V electric active anti-roll control also helped Millen make his record run. It uses the standard 6.0-liter twin turbo W12 which still produces 600 PS and 900 Nm of torque, mated to an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission and four-wheel drive. Order books will open in August for US and European customers.
