Bentley announces Bentayga Pikes Peak Edition to honor record-setting run

Mechanical specifications mirror those of the record-breaker, which means the vehicle has an active 48V anti-roll system, air suspension and the Bentayga Sports Exhaust as standard.

Needless to say, if you wish to purchase a Bentayga W12 just like Rhys Millen's (minus the safety equipment), you can. "I'm delighted to take the SUV record for Bentley and for everyone that's been involved in this project", Rhys Millen commented.

The Duchess of Sussex and The Queen have a "very different balance", while Kate and Her Maj are "totally in tune". And her latest choice - a skirt suit by Prada - certainly did that.

This is the Bentley Bentayga Pikes Peak Limited Edition: a special which marks the SUV's record-breaking run on the gruelling Colorado mountain route. Most notable is the "Radium" paint finish - a more subdued black is also available - and 22-inch alloy wheels which feature highlights in the same lurid shade. 10 specially outfitted cars will bear the Pikes Peak Bentayga name and badging. The front seats were replaced with racing versions while the rear seats were removed, and a roll cage and fire suppression system were installed. An additional carbon fibre package adds a front splitter, side skirts and a rear diffuser and spoiler in the lightweight material. Inside the Pikes Peak Bentayga, Key Lime accents mesh with Beluga leather, Alcantara, and an Eliade cloth headliner.

Tyres were selected from Pirelli's DOT-marked range, and a production-specification Akrapovic sports exhaust was fitted.

Caltrans will also update road information on Facebook and Twitter immediately if the Pawnee Fire closes State Route 20. The rural region was hit hard in 2015 by a 120-square-mile fire that killed four people and destroyed 2,000 buildings.

A Pikes Peak logo decorates the carbon fibre fascias, and numbered Pikes Peak treadplates complete the interior.

The 10 cars will all have the six-liter twin turbo W12 engine with 600 horsepower, paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission and a permanent four-wheel-drive system.

Croatia Eliminate Iceland to Complete Perfect Group Stage Run, Win Group D
The Iceland defender Sverrir Ingason almost scored twice just moments later, heading just over and then again off the crossbar. Iceland can still qualify for the round of 16 but they have to beat Croatia and have Argentina beat Nigeria by only one goal .

Although Bentley won't announce pricing until the auto goes on sale in Europe and the USA in August, it's fair to assume a hefty increase on the standard W12 car's £162,700. It also comes with the Touring Package, which adds adaptive cruise control, a head-up display, lane-keeping assist and night vision to the base auto.
