The Bentley Bentayga Bengala Is Half Luxury SUV, Half Terrifying Tank
The ultra-posh Bentley Bentayga is getting a gritty makeover fit for a military tank.
Bengala Automotive Design, a Spanish design house previously showed their penchant for aggro body work on the Ferrari F12 “Caballiera,” set out to combine luxury with “brutal appearance and outstanding performance” in their murdered-out take on the beastly British SUV.
The Bentley Bentayga Bengala’s loudest features are the badass push bumper and LED strip that partially cover the off-roader’s giant grille. As Motor 1 notes, these mods in particular call to mind the Rezvani Tank.
The wheel wells get extended fender flares to accommodate beefy new tires and Bengala’s Dillinger forged rims. To keep weight down, carbon fiber was used extensively.
Aside from a tuned-up suspension, the custom job is almost entirely aesthetic. That’s just fine by us, as the 540 horsepower produced by the Bentayga’s stock twin-turbocharged, 4.0-liter V8 already gets it to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds.
According to Bengala, an unnamed Spanish rally champion helped develop the custom Bentayga.
Only 15 of these ultra-exclusive vehicles are being made, so anyone who orders one can rest assured that they’re getting a truly unique ride worthy the world’s roughest environments.
Head to Bengala’s website to inquire about price, if you dare.
