If you are a lover of the chrome plated grilles, the smell of burning rubber, and the thrill of speed, you will definitely love Bentley’s latest luxurious offering. The car, launched yesterday at a price of 3.85 crore rupees, is what Bentley calls ‘the fastest, most powerful & luxurious SUV in the world’. Every aspect of the car screams luxury. Be it the gorgeous interiors, or the meticulously handcrafted exteriors, this car will surely make every observer’s heart skip a beat.
The Bentley Bantayga offers the widest range of on and off-road drive setting thanks to Bentley’s Drive Dynamics mode and optional off-road settings. The Bentley SUV offer eight driving modes, thus allowing everyone to select the perfect setup for any terrain conditions. Other features on offer are – Electric Power-Assisted Steering (EPAS), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) including Stop & Go, Traffic Sign Recognition, Rear Crossing Traffic Warning, Park Assist, Electronic Night Vision, an 8” touch screen infotainment system with 60GB hard drive and a choice of up to 30 languages. The features aren’t limited to trivial technical specifications. In terms of raw power, the Bantayga can go from 0-100 km/h in just 4.1 seconds!
The Bantayga is a car to grab immediately if one has the cash and/or one is a lover of limited edition models. Only 3000 Bantayga cars will be produced in all, with the first one being bought by Queen Elizabeth herself. Bentley Bentayga will have only one competitor in the country and that is the Range Rover Sport Autobiography edition (Land Rover’s premium offering).
To sum up, the Bantayga is expected to be the new symbol of luxury for India’s elite. For common folk like us, it will surely be a sight to behold as it prowls the roads of our country.
