Bentley Bentayga Field Sports Edition by Mulliner is the most luxurious hunting car out there

We’re willing to bet that the Bentley Bentayga is not the first thing that comes to mind for most people who are into off-roading and outdoor activities. It just doesn’t have that kind of reputation; also, it has a whopping price tag of $229,000.

Well, regardless of what your reasons are for hesitating on purchasing one, the automaker, together with Mulliner, has built an outstanding vehicle that you would want in your garage. Both companies have joined forces to fit a Field Sports accessory kit to the luxurious SUV, and this optional kit includes everything you need for the ultimate hunting car, believe it or not.

The British automaker and aforementioned Mulliner got custom gun manufacturer Purdey to work with them. So Purdey designed storage in the cargo area as an added feature. But what makes this so special is the large sliding unit that comes with several compartments capable of carrying supplies that the passenger will require – ranging from a first aid kit to some extra ammunition. Of course, the storage is not just like any basic storage out there, as it has been finished in the finest, authentic handcrafted materials to make sure that it is still luxurious.

Get starstruck with this Startech-styled Bentley Bentayga in Shadow Gold

A Startech-tuned Bentley Bentayga by far is the most lavishly styled exhibit from the sea of aftermarket specialists that graced the IAA. An affiliate of Brabus, Startech has actually brought us the first ever customized variant of the British brand’s highly expensive sport utility vehicle. Since then, over a handful of Bentayga owners have been captivated by Startech’s tuning products and availed the German tuner’s special upgrades despite the incredible price.

What we have here is yet another Bentayga dressed with the tuner’s custom body kit but it seems to stand out more from the rest of them. Featuring the ultra-luxurious Shadow Gold paint finish, this SUV comes equipped with Startech’s huge 23-inch forged Monostar S wheels, valve controlled exhaust, lowering kit, an extended body and the Startech-exclusive front and rear bumpers.

Some of the features special to this brand are the Bentayga’s unique carbon fiber diffuser at the rear section and the honeycomb lower grille inserts at the front. The very distinct Shadow Gold paint finish could be seen throughout the roof, C-Pillars, bonnet and all around the grille. This same finish is also seen on the SUV’s trunk lid badge, air vent surrounds and forged wheels.

Land Rover will produce new flagship model to rival Bentley Bentayga, Rolls-Royce Cullinan

The uber-luxurious sports utility vehicle market is definitely growing quickly, Bentley has its own Bentayga and Rolls-Royce is now prepping the Cullinan. And now, it seems that Land Rover wants a piece of the action by possibly expanding their lineup with a SUV that will sit on top of the current range topper, the Range Rover SV Autobiography.

The juicy details are not really that crystal clear at this point in time due to the fact that it is still a question mark if the Land Rover "SUV" will be a completely different model or just another luxurious trim for the Range Rover. By far, the most expensive and premium Land Rover model was the Range Rover Holland and Holland, which costs around £180,000 in United Kingdom and $244,500 in United States.

Unfortunately, the SUV is no longer available as it was only released for a limited time only. The Tata Motors-owned company does not have a vehicle to rival the Bentley Bentayga as of the moment, but this could possibly change in the following years as this uber-premium range topper is being planned. Furthermore, a Mercedes-Maybach marked SUV will supposedly be produced in the next years to come.

Daimler CEO confirms that we’ll soon see a Mercedes-Maybach SUV

Daimler Group CEO Dr. Dieter Zetsche somehow confirmed that there will be a new SUV in their lineup. This announcement came from the CEO himself while on a press meeting at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show. Unfortunately, he didn’t go over the details. According to Zetsche, “I’d like to say you will be seeing it, but I’ll leave it at that.”

According to rumors, the luxury SUV will be wearing a Maybach badge. If that’s the case, the SUV will be among Mercedes’ Maybach division which also includes the limited edition S650 Cabriolet. For sure, not everyone would be pleased with the idea but some people would also want an SUV with all the luxurious appointments. Even if it gets delayed for a few more years, we think a Mercedes-Maybach SUV would be more than amazing.

Besides, don’t you think it’s about time that Mercedes-Benz comes up with an ultra-posh SUV? In any case, the German brand’s luxury sport utility vehicle will be pitted against Lamborghini’s Urus, Rolls Royce’s Cullinan and of course, Bentley’s Bentayga model.

Ford revealed that the luxury versions of its Edge and Kuga SUVs are expected to hit the different European markets. Under the Vignale lineup, Ford is more than determined to entice customers to shy away from choosing the standard premium brands. In order to achieve this goal, the brand will be offering both the Edge and the Kuga under exclusive specifications that make use of materials having high quality. Examples of these, to name a few, are the unique colors for the exterior, the use of the Windsor tuxedo-stitched leather for the interior, and the upscale detailing. Ford will even be offering a grille that comes in a hexagonal design and that are exclusive for the Vignale range.

In terms of power delivery, the Kuga Vignale will offer the EcoBoost 1.5-liter petrol engine with one version capable of delivering output of 150 PS (148 hp) and the second having output of 182 PS (179 hp). The latter engine though will be paired solely with the AWD and the automatic 6-speed transmission. Offered as well are the TDCi 2.0-liter diesel engine with one displaying an output of 150 PS (148 hp) and the other 180 PS (177 hp). Unlike the petrol engine, both diesel units are offered, as an option, the AWD and automatic 6-speed transmission. Meanwhile the Edge Vignale will have two powertrains, both powered by diesel. The first is the TDCi 2.0-liter engine with output of 177 hp and paired to the manual 6-speed transmission. Meanwhile the second unit is the TDCi 1.0-liter twin-turbo engine having an output of 207 hp and coupled with the brand’s very own automatic Powershift twin-clutch transmission.

In terms of size, the Edge is larger when compared to the Kuga and some features include alloy 19-inch wheels polished in aluminum, the front grille having a dark matter finish, and the fog lamps finished in chrome. Similar to the Kuga, customers can select for the Edge a wide range of distinct colors for the exterior with one of them being the Vignale Ametista Scura, which is a rich metallic brown tint.

For almost a century, Bentley has been one of the leading luxury motorcar manufacturers. It has always prided itself for producing hand-built luxury vehicles that have been given a lot of time and effort by their resident designers, craftsmen and engineers. In terms of putting together technology and timeless elegance, Bentley is already an expert of this field. Its production and manufacturing houses create some of the world’s most classic and expensive cars, some of which have served high-profile personalities like Queen Elizabeth.

Last year, Bentley introduced to the world an SUV that was beyond all others of its kind. The Bentley Bentayga is a classic offering into the realm of SUVs, living proof that not all SUVs are the stereotypical soccer mom service vehicle. What most of us do not know is that there is more to the Bentayga than meets the eye, more than its authoritarian exterior or even the 600 horsepower under its hood.

The name “Bentayga” is a combination of the company founder’s name and the Taiga, a biome that is typically found in the northern hemisphere.

The new BMW X7 crossover will be available in two versions -- a seven-seater and a $100,000-plus uber-luxurious X7 four-seater. According to BMW brand sales chief Ian Robertson, the super-luxurious X7 is part of the German carmaker’s expansion plans for its GKL (Grand Klasse) models that already include the redesigned 7-series sedan.

Both X7 versions will feature a look distinct from the BMW X5 large crossover. He announced that BMW is planning to add more GKL models, but fell short of confirming the rumored 9 series.

Robertson, however, disclosed another model is well under way and BMW plans to unveil it in the not too distant future. He also did not say whether the uber-luxurious version of the X7 is BMW’s response to the Maybach version of the Mercedes-Benz GLS SUV.

After four years of blood, sweat and tears, the Bentley Bentayga is now poised to take the world by storm. It all began four years ago with one amazing idea that led to the creation of a bold and dominant masterpiece.

Ploughing their largest capital investment into any model to date, Bentley has left nothing to compromise with the Bentayga. An eye-blinking £840 million was invested, 1,500 new jobs were created, and the assembly line at Crewe has certainly been given the all-star treatment.

With deliveries commencing in January 2016, SUV customers will not be disappointed. Appreciating the prowess of this powerful machine, Wolfgang Durheimer, Chairman and CEO of Bentley Motors said that the Bentley Bentayga will be the “benchmark” for the new luxury SUV segment and will be proof of how strongly committed the company is to creating jobs and investing in this country, specifically at its Crewe home.

So that the SUV will be very light, plenty of carbon kevlar will be used on the chassis. Dartz said that this model has a price range of $390,000 to $468,000.

Bentley Motors has finally unveiled in metal a more hardcore version of its Bentayga sports utility vehicle at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. Welcome the new Bentley Bentayga Speed, which is not only the fastest production SUV in the United Kingdom, but also in the world, as the British auto maker claims.

According to Bentley, the new Bentayga Speed is the most powerful and performance-oriented Bentayga so far, building on the carmaker’s tradition of creating Speed models since 2007 (Continental GT).

It could be remembered that the Bentayga managed to set a new record for production SUVs at the 2018 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.

The last time the Lincoln Aviator premium SUV made it to the streets was more than a decade ago. It was only produced for three years, and the 2005 model year was the last version of the Aviator produced. Now, the Aviator is set to take off once again, as recently unveiled at 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show.

Lincoln is once again ready to demonstrate that its premium SUV offering isn't just for luxurious utility, but also for power and capability. It is for these reasons the all-new 2020 Lincoln Aviator is laden not just with a powerful engine but also with advanced technologies. This new three-row, midsize premium utility takes Lincoln’s design vision on a new level while pursuing the brand’s Quiet Flight concept.

The design of the all-new Lincoln Aviator is inspired by aviation, as seen on its lines as well as on its wraparound windshield. Moreover, the stature of the front grille and tapering off of the body and tail provide a distinct aerofoil analogy. The Aviator on display at the LA Auto Show is wrapped in Flight Blue exterior color. Its Lincoln’s signature grille dons a high-gloss black appearance as well as chrome accents.

More than a month ago since introducing the BMW X7 to the global public, the German premium carmaker has unveiled its flagship SUV to the North American audience at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. This is quite ironic since the BMW X7 is built at the carmaker’s Spartanburg manufacturing site in South Carolina.

There is quite no need to tell all the details about the new BMW X7. Nonetheless, the X7 that will soon arrive in the United States will be available in two guises, powered only by petrol engines. As what BMW has revealed, the X7 SUV will be offered either as the X7 xDrive40i or the X7 xDrive50i. The BMW X7 xDrive40i has a core in the persona of a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six engine. This mill is tuned to deliver 335 hp (250 kW) of max output as well as 330 lb.-ft. (447 Nm). This power is enough for the xDrive40i to accelerate from zero to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 5.8 seconds.

On the other hand, BMW is offering a more powerful version of the X7 SUV, which would be an ideal fit for customers who wanted to squeeze more performance from the flagship. The BMW X7 xDrive50i will be powered by a newly developed twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine that can deliver 456 hp (340 kW) of max motive power as well as 479 lb.-ft. (649 Nm) of peak torque. This engine can send the X7 xDrive50i sprinting from nil to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 5.2 seconds, or around 0.6 seconds quicker than the X7 xDrive40i.

The 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show is playing host to a number of debuts, especially SUVs. Hyundai won't let itself be left out as the South Korean carmaker unveiled its own SUV flagship at the LA event – the all-new 2020 Hyundai Palisade mid-size SUV. Set to be built at the carmaker’s manufacturing plant in Ulsan, South Korea, the 2020 Hyundai Palisade is scheduled to arrive dealerships across the United States in the summer of 2019.

Hyundai’s new Palisade could be the brand’s answer to the growing demand for larger SUVs. It does offer a seven-seat SUV in the guise of the Hyundai Santa Fe XL. However, the Hyundai Santa Fe XL is basically just a slightly larger version of the Santa Fe five-seat SUV. Some customers might find other similarly sized SUVs from other carmakers as more spacious.

To answer the call, Hyundai create the new Palisade, which it says offers enough room to accommodate eight occupants and their cargo. Furthermore, the Palisade promises to deliver a host of technologies and offer great levels of safety.

Can a Dacia Duster be compared with a Ford Mustang? It would be difficult to do so as these vehicles compete in different categories and segments, have different price points and different target markets. Moreover, in terms of power and performance, the Duster couldn’t be compared to a Mustang.

Nonetheless, there is one person who believes that Dacia’s budget SUV is similar to the Ford’s legendary pony car. This person is the chief of design for Group Renault -- Laurens van den Acker. Dacia, the Romanian subsidiary of Group Renault, has been building the Duster since 2009, while Ford has been producing the Mustang since 1965. Despite the Duster being just a decade old, van den Acker told Autocar that the SUV is similar to the Mustang in a sense that it is already an iconic model with an identity stronger than the brand.

Group Renault’s design chief believes that the identity of the Duster as a model is already larger than Dacia as a brand. This is similar to the iconic pony car – the Mustang as a model has a stronger identity than Ford as a brand. The Duster is iconic to Dacia just as the Mustang is iconic for Ford.

Plug-in hybrid vehicles are increasingly the mobility of choice for many people. For short drives around the city or urban areas, plug-in hybrid can be switched to all-electric mode for a zero-emission driving experience. However, current plug-in hybrids can only offer up to 50 km (31 miles) of all-electric range.

Mercedes-Benz is hoping to break the status quo by not just surpassing the 50-km barrier, but also offering up to 100 km (62 miles) in pure electric range. Quite a number of plug-in hybrids still offer 30 km of electric range, while there is an increasing number of models that are engineered to reach 50 km.

As divulged by Ola Kallenius, head of Daimler group research and Mercedes-Benz cars development, the upcoming Mercedes-Benz GLE PHEV will be the first plug-in hybrid to offer a 100-km range, as per WLTP cycle.

In case you missed it, Ferrari is joining the world of crossovers. As SUV and crossovers continue to rule the demand in the automotive world, the Italian sports car maker saw that it is in its best interest to join the game with the new Ferrari Purosangue.

While this new crossover might officially arrive in a matter of years, this new Ferrari SUV might already be past the planning stage – if SupercarsNews is to be believed. SupercarsNews uploaded a video on its YouTube account with the description “Ferrari Purosangue spy spotted! The new SUV Ferrari mule on the road.” The video shows a camouflaged crossover entering the field of view of the camera. Then, the camouflaged vehicle comes to a full stop, but only for a second. Perhaps, its driver had no inkling that a spy photographer was waiting for an ambush. Then the camouflaged vehicle reverses to hide from the camera.

No thanks to the description, by SupercarsNews persons who would have seen the video would quickly believe that this test mule was an early prototype of the Ferrari Purosangue. However, the Ferrari vehicle on the video might not be a test mule for the Ferrari Purosangue crossover. Instead, it could be an elevated test mule for the Ferrari GTC4Lusso. Since this test mule has a high ground clearance, it might have been mistaken for the Purosangue. As to why the test mule for the GTC4Lusso has a higher ground elevation, there is no clear reason yet.

BMW will launch the fourth generation of its X5 SUV to the global market in March 2019. Its high-performance version, the X5 M, would follow but that would take some time. As there would be customers who want their new X5 looks sportier than usual, BMW is allowing them to dress up their SUVs in M style through M Performance Parts.

Just in time for the global launch of the new X5 (05), BMW will be offering an extensive range of M Performance Parts, as available through the Original BMW Accessories program. Just like any other M Performance Parts, the ones that will be available for the new X5 were developed through racing expertise of BMW M. All of these M Performance Parts have a functional purpose, such as enhancing the X5’s aerodynamics or contributing to its already intelligent lightweight concept.

A number of M Performance Parts for the new X5 are made from carbon fiber, giving the SUV a more striking appearance inspired by motor racing. Most of these CFRP (carbon fiber reinforced plastic) components feature a final high-gloss polish for further depth effect.

Just recently, BMW introduced its much-anticipated flagship SUV -- the all-new BMW X7 – after more than four years of wait. Now that it is finally arriving, high-performance customers are wondering how many years they would have to wait before the German premium carmaker creates a BMW X7 M.

The reality is that there is yet no clear sign that BMW would create an M version of the newly unveiled X7 SUV. While the X7 M is a possibility that can’t be discount, it might be hard to imagine how the high-performance version of BMW’s flagship SUV would look like. Good thing though, an automotive graphic artist is here to help with his own rendering of the BMW X7 M.

X-Tomi Design has been known for his renderings of still non-existent versions of vehicles that are in the market or have just been unveiled. His graphic works are usually realistic, to the point that it seems that his renderings were actual official images released by carmakers. X-Tomi latest comes in form of the BMW X7 M, which would be the high-performance version of the newly unveiled X7.
