Love it or hate it, the Bentley Bentayga is coming. That’s right, uber-luxury automaker, Bentley, has its first-ever SUV on the verge of hitting showrooms. With this big release comes the announcement that the first allotment of the Bentayga will carry the First Edition name and have a slew of special features.
The specialness of the Bentayga First Edition begins on the outside. Here, you’ll find special Union Jack badging and 22-inch polished black-painted wheels. Bentley will offer this limited-run model to just 10 exterior colors.
Inside its cabin, the Bentayga arrives with a handful of exclusive features. The most striking change is the addition of “Diamond Within Diamond” stitching, which features four diamonds sewn within the diamond tufts on the seats and door panels. Also making the cabin stand out are the embroidered seats, illuminated doorsill plates, and special wood and metal trims.
Also included with the purchase of the Bentayga First Edition is a unique Breitling watch. There are three watches to choose from, including the Emergency, which has a locator beacon; the Cockpit B50, which has an electronic multifunction caliber; and the Chronomat 38, which is a woman’s watch.
Like all Betaygas, the First Edition comes with a twin-turbo 6.0-liter W-12 engine that produces an insane 600 horsepower and 663 pound-feet of torque. This powerplant gets the super-luxurious SUV to 60 mph in an impressive 4.1 seconds and up to a top speed of 187 mph, making it the fastest SUV in the world.
Bentley will offer only 608 examples of this special SUV, all of which were likely accounted for at its initial debut at the Sunset Marquis Hotel in Los Angeles. Prices for this model are not available.
