I remember reading that Bentley will do quite a lot of customisation for customers. Tell them you want a Casio

Great decision. With number of billionaires increasing (thanks to startups, especially the over evaluated ones), huge market for such pieces booked on company books to take advantage of depreciation. I'm sure not a single one will sell on EMI.

What I believe is that the Breitling is an add on option, priced at ₹1 crore. That is still a very very insanely expensive add-on though 😅

This is great news. At 3.85 Crs, this is a cue to become a Baba, Bollywood actor or Cricketer. Or go out of India and join Google/Apple and find no time to actually drive one.

I don't have any interest in expensive clocks or watches, and doubt that I would have, even if a fairy godmother did decide to attend to my bank account. Thus, I have no idea what this thing would cost as a clock to put in the house. If it is in the same ball park, then I guess it is fair to charge that much to put one in the car, and enthusiasts would welcome it.

I'm not interested in expensive watches, clocks, or even sports cars but... I wouldn't mind a Bentley. Send fairy godmother!

(As this is not going to happen, the practicality of driving the thing on Chennai lanes does not need to be discussed )

Here is a bit more detail about the Breitling clock in the Bentayga. It's not exactly a bolt on fitment into a 'standard' Bentayga.

Its the dealer car that will tour the country for prospective customer drives. Atleast that is what the journos have been told!

Woah, a limited edition 1 of 608 First Edition as a dealer car, now that's something!
But I wonder why the car doesn't wear the fancier 22-inch wheels and carbon fiber kit if it really is a demonstrator?

Some pics of the Bentley Bentayga from Delhi.

Note the "First Edition" badge and the Union Jack badge on the front doors.

Maybe you can tell us if it is a dealer car or a customer car?
Because I think it is highly unlikely that they will use a limited production First Edition for it. But then again, I did see atleast one review (by NDTV) where this car was given to journos. If I was the customer and if I was getting myself the country's first Bentayga, that too a First Edition, I would not let the car be handed out to media. Though I would have no problem if it was used as the launch car.
So the question remains, is it a dealer demonstrator car or a customer car?

Sorry potential Bentley customers, all the best to you! Bentley seriously needs a design change and whoever's at the helm should fire the design team. The Mulsanne was an eyesore and this cross-eyed Bentayga is beyond belief, Union Jack badges notwithstanding! Where are the stately British Bentleys of yore? VW has screwed up Bentley I'm afraid although it may be technically brilliant. Seriously, is anyone buying one?

Not too sure, but since you mention its been used for reviews, it ought to be a dealer car. Maybe later this Bentayga can be passed on to a customer who is willing to buy it.

Apparently the order books are ringing. IIRC the 20 odd Bentayga's scheduled for India have already been booked by potential customers and a whopping 9 of them have been booked by customers from Delhi only.

Also I am told the enquiries from the potential customers across the country for the Bentayga has already crossed the three-digit mark.

VW just did the impossible, make a car far uglier than the Sangyong Rodius. Even more stunning is the fact it costs 10 times as much!!

Thank God for the rich and tasteless!

Like the owner of the car parked next to it? Would be a wonderful looking vehicle in either colour, but both? A mistake. Still, each to their own.

I don't know how different the final Bentagaya is now, but, to me, it seems a lot less ugly than it did in early pictures posted on the site. Somehow, they seem to have retained some Bentley elegance in spite of their efforts!

The latest Head to Head Episode pitts the Bentayga with another fast one.



The Model X is not a direct competitor but boy oh boy it is an ultimate geeks wet dream.
PS: There is a surprise visitor towards the end of the video.
