Bentley says that it takes over 130 hours to produce a Bentayga, from start to finish. That’s over four times more than it takes for Volkswagen to push out a Golf, which sits at around 30 hours split across 2 to 4 days. But being a luxury car, there is a lot more attention to detail and far more complexity in everything from powertrain to insulation.
The first batch of Bentayga customers were presented their cars at Bentley’s headquarters in Crewe, England. It also happens to be the manufacturing location of a number of other Bentley staples, like the Flying Spur, Mulsanne, and Continental GT. In addition to finally seeing their cars in person, these lucky owners were treated with a tour of the factory and meeting the people involved in creating their cars.
These customers are especially important to the Bentley brand as they were the first customers to put their name down on the booking list for the Bentayga- before there was even a finished model to see in the metal. These customers will be receiving the specific First Edition variant of the Bentayga. Despite sharing a platform with the Q7 and the upcoming Cayenne, the Bentayga is the most powerful SUV in the world- for now.
