2018 Bentley Bentayga Pikes Peak Edition revealed

Bentley has toppled the production SUV record at the 2018 Pikes Peak International Hillclimb, and will celebrate the feat with a run of 10 special editions. It was a good weekend to be chasing records in Colorado. Volkswagen set a new overall course record in the all-electric I.D. R, and Rhys Millen hustled a lightly modified Bentayga up the 156 corners of Pikes Peak in 10:49.9 – a handy 1:45.71 quicker than the last Production SUV-class record, set by a Range Rover Sport in 2014.
