The luxury SUV from Bentley, the Bentayga, was long due, but it has now been officially revealed by the company. The Bentley Bentayga has clocked the fastest speed of a luxury SUV or any other SUV in the world and it stands at 187 miles per hour. This luxury SUV is also the first SUV to come out from the stable of Bentley.

But, things are going to take a U-turn when the company showcases the Bentayga car at its pavilion. There will be more and more looking to catch a glimpse of the car and also feel how it would be to get behind the wheel of the car.

The front end of the car is fitted with four round LED headlamps that gives it a majestic and modern look. The rear end of the car’s haunch pane is made using a large single piece aluminum pressing. This has made the car to be 520 pounds lighter and this explains why the SUV offers a good mileage. Apart from this, the roof is made of glass panels that cover 60% of the roof. With folding seats and hands free tailgate, you will be able to enjoy a better view of the place where the luxe-sports car takes you.
