Luxurious First Edition Bentayga gets bespoke trim elements inside and out; just 608 examples will be made

The exclusive Bentley Bentayga First Edition has been revealed on the eve of the Los Angeles motor show.

Just over 600 examples of the First Edition of Bentley's first-ever SUV model will be produced. They include high levels of bespoke equipment as well as unique Union Jack badging.

Among the car's features are illuminated treadplates, 22in alloy wheels and bespoke colour options. Inside, the already luxurious Bentayga receives new quilted trim and badging, contrasting stitching, embroidered seats and new trim details.

As well as the First Edition's bespoke elements, owners will also be able to choose from three special Breitling watches.

In total, 608 First Edition models will be made - reflecting the SUV's power output of 608PS, or 600bhp. All First Edition cars are powered by Bentley's twin-turbocharged W12 engine.

Announcing the new model, Bentley's sales and marketing boss Kevin Rose said: "With the First Edition we have created the ultimate expression of the Bentayga's spirit. It is equipped with an array of striking features that celebrate both the pioneering nature of the Bentayga and its unique abilities."

Autocar understands that all examples of the First Edition have already been sold. Prices for the standard Bentayga start at £160,000.

How come the Autocar review of this car, only posted earlier today, has disappeared from the News pages? It's still visible in the Car Reviews section, but without the (almost all negative) comments from contributors. A more cynical person than me might think that Autocar had received a call from Volkswagen Group's Press Office... It's still an ugly, vulgar, blingy, look-at-me monstrosity, IMHO.

I notice there is no mention of price...

but then I suppose, if you have to ask how much, you simply can't afford it...
