You could go for years without ever seeing a Bentayga on the street; you could easily go a lifetime without seeing its slick headlamp washer system in action. Bentley’s designers wanted to make sure the striking headlamps stayed clean enough that you could see the automaker’s logo from a dozen paces, but didn’t want the typical, ugly water jets spoiling the SUV’s lines.
The solution is mechanical excess of the first order. Pull the windshield washer stalk and the center of the side lamps pops out like R2D2’s gripper, quickly releasing a spritz of water and then snapping shut again. It doesn’t happen every time – the lamps don’t get as dirty as the windshield does, after all – but it’s definitely eye-catching when you see it happen.
The Bentley Bentayga combines unparalleled luxury with effortless performance and everyday usability. With an all-new twin-turbocharged 6.0-litre W12 powertrain, the Bentayga is the fastest, most powerful, most luxurious and most exclusive SUV in the world. It offers a true Bentley driving experience and showcases a range of innovative technology features.
Its modern luxury interior is handcrafted in Britain, the Bentayga boasts the world’s finest automotive cabin, with unrivalled levels of precision. The detailing in metal, wood and leather – including meticulous tolerances between elements of trim – sets a new standard in automotive design. This level of perfection is only achievable thanks to the exceptional skill of Bentley’s colleagues in Crewe.
