2017 Bentley Bentayga
This all-black 2017 Bentley Bentayga is the hooded street fighter of luxury high-performance SUVs.
It flexes some serious muscle, and not just because it packs the top-of-the-range twin turbo W12 engine with 447 kW of power and an earth-spinning 900 Nm of torque.
It casts an intimidating silhouette on the road with totally black body, window surrounds, front grill, bumper inserts and 22-inch alloy wheels finished in gloss black.
And no one will know who’s being ferried in the back seat thanks to heavily tinted rear privacy glass.
But those back-seat passengers will enjoy a lavish interior straight out of a Moulin Rouge cabaret with plush Hotspur crimson leather seats finished in quilted diamond stitching. Piano black upper door panels and more quilted red leather add to the A-lister seat treatment.
And when the front-seat conversation becomes too ho-hum one can always slip on the headphones and enjoy the individual back seat entertainment system while leaning back and looking at the stars through the panoramic full glass roof.
The front seat is the place for most, and that would be seat 1A on the right with the steering wheel and pedals. The driver feels a million dollars at the wheel of this car with its bejewelled interior and sense of occasion on every journey, no matter how mundane.
Million dollar feeling
This Bentayga has very low kilometres and presents as new yet is offered at six figures below new car price.
