Bentley breaks SUV record with the Bentayga at Pikes Peak

Bentley breaks SUV record with the Bentayga at Pikes Peak

 - Bentley Bentayga smashes Production SUV record at Pikes Peak

 - Rhys Millen completes course in 10:49.9 minutes

Bentley had been working hard along with Rhys Millen to set-up the Bentayga for a record hill-climb effort and it seems like the efforts have paid dividends. Driven by two-time champion Rhys Millen, the Bentayga completed the hill climb in just 10:49.9, taking nearly two minutes off the previous record by averaging 106.4 kmph. Climbing almost 5,000 ft through 156 corners, the Bentayga deployed its unique combination of a 600 bhp, 900 Nm W12 engine, adaptive air suspension, active electric 48V anti-roll control and carbon ceramic brakes to set a stunning new benchmark.

Only minimal changes were made to a standard production Bentayga in order to comply with the rules. The front seats were replaced with racing versions while the rear seats were removed, and a roll cage and fire suppression system were installed. Tyres were selected from Pirelli’s DOT-marked range, and a production-specification Akrapovic sports exhaust was fitted. In every other way, the Pikes Peak car 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.
