Bentley have delivered the first batch of their Bentayga SUV to customers.
The Bentayga is the world’s fastest SUV with a 187mph top speed, and is also branded by Bentley as the “most luxurious”.
Each one takes more than 130 hours to build from start to finish, and comes with a hefty starting price tag of $229,100.
It is Bentley’s first ever SUV as the British firm tries to carve out a new corner for itself in the luxury car market, and has been generally very well received by critics with a string of four and five star reviews.
The first Bentaygas were delivered to customers at the firm’s HQ in Crewe, England, where buyers were given the chance to visit the production line and see the processes that went into making their vehicles.
Bentley marketing chief Kevin Rose said: “The customers joining us for the event have followed the Bentayga journey since we proposed the idea of a Bentley SUV, and were among the very first in the world to put their names down on the order book for First Edition cars – many before they had even seen the finished model. Today their confidence in Bentley is repaid.”
Deliveries in other countries around the world are also starting from today.
