    Re: Bentley Bentayga

    Not crazy about it. Can't believe it's sold out everywhere.


    Re: Bentley Bentayga

    Not a eye catcher for sure, but it looks distinctive.

    From the front it looks a bit like a modern London Taxi !

    But it is better from the side .

    What chassis does this SUV use ?

    Yes, the Q7 which will also be used for the lambo SUV.

    I'm just hoping the Maserati SUV ends up looking better than this.  Was told by two different people who saw it in the factory that it looks like a nicer cayenne. Fingers crossed!


    Re: Bentley Bentayga

    IMO the style is very appropriate for the Bentley clientele. The Continental 4 door doesn't look any better than the new SUV and yet it sells to the Bentley loyal.

    Maserati? No relevance. Different customer base and different rank among the wealthy. Maserati should be happy/lucky  to get a fraction out of the Cayenne sales.

    Relax, no one said anything about Maserati going after Porsche. They said it looks like a nicer cayenne which is a complement to the cayenne's design.

    You are a bigger Porsche fanboy than RC used to be ten years.


    Re: Bentley Bentayga

    Read carefully what I write.

    I simply mentioned that Maserati (which you hope will look better than the Bentayga) in  relation to Bentley are in a  totally different class. If Maserati would get lucky they might take some of the Cayenne sales with their SUV.

    Re: Bentley Bentayga

    I can't imagine how big is gonna be the depreciation in a ¿V12? SUV. Wise buyers will get one at half its price in a few years.


    Re: Bentley Bentayga

    that is one ugly Bentley .. grafting a sports car face on to a giant SUV is like putting a pretty face onto an East German female swimmer from the last century


    Re: Bentley Bentayga

    eyyy.... I get cancer in my eyes looking at this!

    So fugly...

    .... I like that comment with the London Taxi - indeed it looks a bit like one!


    Re: Bentley Bentayga

    I actually thought it IS a London taxi when I saw the first pic. 😂 I don't mind it though. I mean, not for me but I'm not exactly their clientele. 


    Re: Bentley Bentayga

    Not my cup of tea but I am sure they will sell many of them. I hope they do so they have the funds to build the Speed 6 sports car!

    London Taxi much better proportioned !


    Re: Bentley Bentayga

    I am sure that this car will be a huge Hit.

    I can see the Bentley Boys and many others getting out of their top of the range Range Rovers and into their Bentaygas when they need an SUV.

    This is a great solution for me, as I prefer to travel with my champagne and silverware in an upright position, as opposed  to having them lying down when I use the Mulsanne. Smiley


    Re: Bentley Bentayga

    I agree the looks are challenging at best. But there again I felt the same way about the Cayenne Turbo but bought four of those over time including a Turbo S because of its combination of performance and practicality. The Bentley just adds the luxury element to this combination but at a significant price hike. The torque figure on this engine and 0-60mph  performance are impressive no matter one thinks of the looks and the unfortunate Bentley brand image.


    Re: Bentley Bentayga

    No doubt it will sell well. And that it will look much better in real than the pics... And price makes much more sense than a Cayenne TTS or a Panamera TTS... Yet I am not a big fan of recent Bentley designs of the CGT and this SUV looks too much like it. I wish they used Muslane cues instead... This might be a good deal if it trades at 50% off after 3 years...

    Indeed very appropriate.... just not sure - if you can afford a Bentley, why don't you have a house with enough space to store your silverware anywhere in your kitchen? Please explain Smiley


    Re: Bentley Bentayga

    Why would you keep it in your kitchen when you are picnicking?

    Very well said. Actually, I like the Bentayga, a very nice SUV for those who need a bit more. Design-wise, I would prefer the Range Rover or the Cayenne but a 600+ hp V12 in a SUV? Count me in. Unfortunately, I cannot really afford it but for 100k EUR, slightly used, after 3 years, this could be a good deal.

    I am pretty sure that this car will replace a lot of high end SUVs in Miami, Dubai and other wealthy regions.

    Bentley did good.
