Bentley Bentayga Downtown in Rainey ‘Hood

Written by Ken Altes

First sighting of this $225k++ SUV. Gets good reviews, powered by a W12 making 600 hp and 664 lb·ft of torque and will toss the Bentayga from 0-6o mph (0-100 km/h) in 3.5 seconds, slamming this 5300 lb. luxo-barge to 186 mph. Appropriately, the name, Bentayga,  means “carried interest” in Swahili.

This British grand tourer has four full-sized seats, powered by a DOHC straight six, the classic Aston Martin engine, making 283 bhp @ 5500 rpm and 288 lb·ft of torque @ 3850 rpm. The Vantage version had 325 bhp. It weighed 3,760 lbs. Only 787 were made between 1967 and 1972. These are rising in value, currently ranging from about $64k for one in fair condition, to almost $200k for concours. Unfortunately, this handsome example has right hand drive.
