Its gestation period was extremely long, but now the Bentley Bentayga has arrived in South Africa.
The Bentayga is now officially available and, if you’re wealthy enough to order one, the new Melrose Arch dealership is the only place in the country where you can view the new Bentley.
The Bentayga is Bentley’s first attempt at an SUV. In typical Bentley fashion, it’s not only opulently luxurious but offers more than enough pace to scare off even the fastest saloon cars. Bentley has developed an all-new 6.0-litre twin-turbo W12 for the Bentayga that develops 447 kW and a whopping 900 Nm of torque. Zero to 100 kph is ticked off in 4.1 seconds and it will carry on accelerating until 301 kph.
Inside, the Bentley sports what is claimed to be the world’s finest SUV interior. There is a mixture of metal, wood and leather crafted together with painstaking attention to detail.
Pricing in South Africa
The Bentley Bentayga commands a hefty price tag at R3 987 000. We're pretty certain that makes it the most expensive SUV officially on sale in SA.
