Bentley is marking the introduction of the new Bentayga on the US market with a special edition, launched during a private event held for a select group of VIP customers in iconic Sunset Marquis Hotel, Los Angeles. The exclusive limited edition of the most powerful SUV in production, called Bentayga First Edition, is restricted to just 608 cars globally.

The First Edition’s unique design includes Union Jack badging, illuminated treadplates and 22 inch black painted and polished wheels. Just ten exterior colours are offered, highlighting the exclusivity of the model.

Inside we find ‘Diamond within Diamond’ quilting, bespoke ambient lighting, Union Jack fascia badging, unique contrast stitching and embroidered seats. The detailing in metal, wood and leather – including meticulous tolerances between elements of trim – complete the exclusivity.

Bentley is producing 608 Bentayga First Edition models as this number marks the metric power output of the Bentayga 608 PS (600 bhp) and 900 Nm (663 lb. ft).

Each of the First Edition customers will receive a unique Breitling watch to complement their new, luxury SUV.

In tribute to the launch of the new Bentley Bentayga SUV, Breitling created three high-performance special-edition chronographs: the Emergency, which features an integrated dual frequency personal locator beacon; Cockpit B50 – with its electronic multifunction calibre; and the automatic Chronomat 38, which is designed for women.
