Would Sir like to take the long way home today?
In keeping with the ‘ fantasy 4WD/ SUV theme’ we’ve been running with over the past few issues, here for your eyes to not quite believe, and mind to fairly boggle at, are the latest preproduction pics of Bentley’s pending Bentayga ( http:// bentayga.bentleymotors.com/ en/ the-new-bentley-suv.html). Pitched by the bespoke British-based ( but Volkswagen, Germany-owned) luxury car maker as ‘ the ultimate performance car’ the Bentayga will be powered by an all-new W12 engine with the company ( not surprisingly) promising the most power, torque and economy of any car in its class! As the photos show, Bentley brass are not afraid of getting their first 4WD SUV dirty, testing it in the arid wilds of northern Spain and the frigid chill beyond the Arctic Circle. If this sounds like a bit of you ( and you’ve either just won Lotto or recently sold your software company or app to a Google or Facebook) Bentley is represented in New Zealand by Bentley Auckland ( ww. auckland.bentleymotors.com). Lee Small is the GM. Ring him on 0- 9- 360 3200 and tell him you read about the Bentayga in NZ4WD magazine!
