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.

Bentley Bentayga Speed hits 2019 Geneva Motor Show as fastest production SUV so far

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. Now, Bentley is evolving the Bentayga to a more performance-oriented SUV by installing a much improved version of the carmaker’s renowned 6.0-liter W12 engine. In its application in the Bentayga Speed, this W12 engine is tuned to deliver up to 635 PS (626 bhp) of output and up to 900 Nm (664 lb.-ft.) of torque.

Klassen is offering to convert the Rolls-Royce Cullinan into a long-wheelbase model

Once considered the most anticipated sports utility vehicle in the world, the Rolls-Royce Cullinan was the brand’s first SUV. Since it was launch, the ultra-luxurious SUV has been exceeding the Rolls-Royce sales expectations. Now, the Cullinan is made more opulent with a stretched wheelbase version as created by German company Klassen.

Tagged as the Rolls-Royce of SUVs, the Cullinan is meant to appeal to wealthy customers looking for a potent, ultra-luxurious yet highly practical SUV. But the people at Klassen know that ultra-rich people see luxurious mobility as being driven, not being behind the wheel. Thus, cabin space is of utmost importance to them, and luxurious cars with long wheelbase are heavily preferred. Klassen seeks to redefine the opulence of the Cullinan by creating a long-wheelbase version.

Klassen is not new to stretching high-end vehicles. In fact, creating long wheelbase models is its specialty. It has already created long wheelbase version of a number of luxury models, such as the Bentley Bentayga, Mercedes-Maybach S-Class, Mercedes G-Class and the Range Rover Autobiography. With the Rolls-Royce Cullinan tagged as an ultra-luxurious SUV, there is nothing that can prevent Klassen from giving this model a long-wheelbase makeover.

Rolls-Royce has no plans to create a new SUV smaller than the Cullinan

Rolls-Royce is experiencing overwhelming sales success with its first sports utility vehicle, the Rolls-Royce Cullinan. In fact, the ultra-luxurious SUV is surpassing the carmaker’s sales expectations. At this point, some people are already expecting the brand to release a smaller version of the Cullinan. But to their dismay, Rolls-Royce has already shut down the possibility of creating a smaller SUV that would complement the Cullinan.

Rolls-Royce chief executive Torsten Muller-Otvos told AutoCar in an interview that the carmaker has already completed its model lineup when it launched the new Cullinan SUV. The ultra-luxurious utility is the fifth and latest model of the carmaker, joining the Phantom, Ghost, Wraith and Dawn in Rolls-Royce lineup. The remarkable success of the Cullinan is bringing smiles to the top management at Rolls-Royce. According to Muller-Otvos said early sales of the Cullinan have exceeded expectations, calling customer reaction to the luxury SUV as brilliant.

Nonetheless, the British carmaker isn't keen to add a new model, especially a smaller SUV, into its current lineup. Muller-Otvos remarked that Rolls-Royce is already pleased with its lineup, noting that there is no demand for a new SUV model among the brand’s ‘ultra-luxury’ buyers. He said that Rolls-Royce strategy is to maintain its high-end price position -- not moving the brand into lower-price segments just for the sake of getting higher sales.

Three years ago, Rolls-Royce first mentioned the Cullinan, which came to be the most anticipated SUV in the world. It is the opulent brand’s very first high riding model. However, the automaker actually describes it as “an all-terrain high-bodied car.”

Of course, the Rolls-Royce of SUVs is meant to attract rich customers who are looking for a potent, very luxurious, and practical SUV. The automaker’s plan is to attract a younger generation of successful people who are right in the middle of the so-called experience economy.

The Cullinan features an opening hatch, called The Clasp. This in inspired by an era when luggage would be positioned outside of the car to create more space for the passengers. It is easily accessible with only one touch of the key fob button, opening up the 560 liters (19.77 cubic feet) of cargo space. When the rear seats are down, there will be a total of 1930 liters (68.15 cubic feet).

If you have the money to spend on a $229,000 Bentley Bentayga, there is also a high likelihood that you drive your luxurious SUV around the city with a couple more expensive items - could be a watch or in a different kind. Now, there is nothing for you to worry about when it comes to storing your valuables because Bentley now offers a storage box for the vehicle’s center console.

Moreover, there is no need to worry about losing keys to this because there actually is none, and it is replaced with a fingerprint scanner instead, making things much more safe and convenient.

It was Bentley’s Mulliner customization division that came up with the idea for this safe inside your car. Now, the center console has been turned into a secured space that features an aluminum cover with capacitive fingerprint scanner.

At the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, Bentley is introducing the very first luxury plug-in hybrid vehicle in the world as packaged within the body of the Bentley Bentayga. Marking the British carmaker’s first step towards electrification, the new Bentley Bentayga Hybrid delivers in terms of performance, comfort, efficiency and luxury.

According to Adrian Hallmark, new Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Bentley Motors, the new Bentayga Hybrid marries traditional Bentley values with the latest technologies. It offers the best of both worlds -- effortless performance and emission-free driving – as confined in a luxurious package that is truly a Bentley. Bentley will open the order books for the new Bentayga Hybrid in the second half of 2018. Availability is only in selected markets.

Being a plug-in hybrid, the new Bentley Bentayga Hybrid features a power drive that makes use of a new turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 petrol engine and the highly efficient E Motor (electric motor). The E Motor serves as both electric motor and a generator to optimize the Bentayga Hybrid’s electric-only range.

Finally, another automaker is getting on the SUV bandwagon. About to reveal its very first SUV is Rolls-Royce, which stated that “the wait is almost over” as it prepares to introduce Goodwood’s “High Sided Vehicle”.

BMW Group’s high end marque also shared plans of carrying over the model’s codename by deciding to baptize the new model as “Cullinan”. In fact, Cullinan was the working title about a couple of months ago, and all of a sudden, it is ready to make history - being Rolls Royce’s first-ever SUV.

The name of the car originated from Cullinan Diamond, which is the largest gem quality rough diamond ever found, with a weight of 3,106.75 carats (621.35g), according to Wikipedia. It was in1905 when this was discovered in South Africa’s Magaliesberg Mountains and was then named after the mine’s chairman, Thomas Cullinan.

Automotive News announced that the loyal customers of Rolls-Royce will be among the first to see the new Cullinan SUV that will be unwrapped behind closed doors. Meanwhile, the general public and the press will have to wait until the latter part of the summer before they can see the much anticipated model for themselves.

If you were not aware, Cullinan is actually just a codename for the automaker’s SUV project. And even if the production version will have a different name, the automaker has yet to inform us what it is. Another thing we noticed is that the automaker refers to the vehicle as a “High Sided Vehicle” instead of an “SUV”.

As you can see in the photos, the Cullinan gets a boxier and more chiseled body, where the front end appears to be very similar to the Phantom. This includes the rectangular LED taillights and the thin intakes underneath them.

The Bentley Bentayga is set to participate in the famous Pikes Peak International Hill Climb that is slated to take place on June 24th in Colorado.

The automaker’s motorsport department is currently working on improving the vehicle’s performance. For it to succeed, the 600 horsepower SUV will have to go through the 12.42-mile (19.98 kilometers) hill climb with a total of 156 corners, as fast as it can. In fact, it will have to be faster than all the other SUVs joining. Vehicles that will participate in Pikes Peak will have to climb 4,720 feet all the way to the finish line at the mountain’s summit of 14,115 feet.

Brian Gush, motorsport executive, said that since the Bentley Bentayga was released, the luxury SUV has set the benchmark for vehicles - thanks to the balance it has achieved in terms of bespoke British craftsmanship, performance, and grand touring ability.

The very first time we ever saw Bentley’s SUV, the Bentayga, was back in September 2015 when it came out with the impressive W12 engine. A year after that, it shifted to a different powertrain, which was the Audi SQ7’s biturbo 4.0 liter V8 TDI for the diesel powered engine. Today, it decides to spice up their range even more by coming up with a V8 version, but this time with a 4.0 liter gasoline engine that works with a pair of turbochargers.

The new powertrain produces as much as 542 horsepower (404 kilowatts) and 568 pound-feet (770 Newton-metres) of torque, which is the same as the Cayenne Turbo and the Porsche Panamera. In only 4.5 seconds, the SUV’s new engine propels the vehicle to reach 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) from a standstill, and it has a top speed of 180 miles per hour (290 kilometers per hour). That makes the W12 variant just a little bit quicker in the sprint and with a better maximum velocity.

The rear wheel drive comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission from ZF, where 60 percent of the torque is sent to the rear axle. It is not like the Bentayga market really cares, but the V8 gasoline version only uses up 11.4 liters for every 100 kilometers in the combined cycle, returning 20.6 miles per gallon in the US (24.8 mpg in UK). The new gas engine is definitely more economical than the W12. When fully loaded, it can run for as far as 464 miles (746 kilometers).

There had been speculations that the Bentley Bentayga will soon have a hybrid powertrain that will be added to its engine lineup. And recently, the automaker confirmed this matter. So expect to see the SUV with a PHEV variant at the upcoming 2018 Geneva Motor Show in early March this year.

Under the Bentley Bentayga’s hood will be an engine that is similar to that of the Porsche Panamera E-Hybrid. It will be equipped with a 2.9 liter V6 that will be paired to an electric motor so it can produce a total output of about 462 horsepower (345 kilowatts). Expect the Bentayga to have a similar range as the Panamera, capable of reaching 30 miles (48 kilometers) on purely electric energy.

Currently, the Bentley Bentayga offers a 6.0 liter W12 biturbo and a 4.0 liter V8 biturbo diesel, which the new PHEV version will join. This version will go on sale in the second quarter of 2018. We should mention though that the automaker is confident that that it will be the best selling option in the United States market.

Today, buyers of the sought after Bentley Bentayga can get the vehicle with either a 6.0 liter biturbo W12 or a 4.0 liter diesel fueled V8, with an electrically driven supercharger and two turbos.

Auto Motor und Sport, a German publication however stated that the automaker will soon offer a gas-fueled V8 to the range in July next year. We are currently taking this statement as a rumour now because the publication did not share any details regarding their source.

If the rumour is true, then it would probably be the Volkwagen Group’s 4.0 liter biturbo engine in the Porsche Cayenne that will be installed into the Bentayga. That said engine produces as much as 550 horsepower (410 kilowatts) and 568 pound-feet (770 Newton metres) of torque. The Lamborghini Urus actually comes equipped with the same engine, but produces 650 horsepower (484 kilowatts) and 627 pound-feet (850 Newton-metres) of torque instead. All the said models sit on the same MLB platform, and that being said, it shouldn’t be a problem for Bentley’s engineers to fit the engine in.

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.

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.

A lot of people would agree that the fastest SUV in the world, the Bentley Bentayga, needs no changes. But aftermarket tuner Kahn Automobiles thinks that the luxury SUV can be made even better.

Having said that, Kahn has just released the latest package that its customers could get with the Bentayga, and they are calling it the Le Mans Edition. The images posted here are of the Bentayga Diesel wearing the said package. But today, this Le Mans Edition is considered as a one-off and will have a selling price of $227,734.

One of the most noticeable exterior changes would be the matte black finish that has been given to the Bentayga. Moving into the cabin, the luxury SUV is now dressed in black 3D Herringbone perforated leather that matches the outside look of the car.

Should Bentley come up with more variants of the Bentayga? Well, according to their CEO Wolfgang Durheimer, it seems that they should do that so they won’t get left behind by their rivals. In an interview with Autocar, Durheimer said that derivatives are important because of the urgency to be “the newest kid in town for customers”.

The British automaker has got some very exciting plans for its plans to expand its lineup. For instance, the company wants to build a quicker version of what is already out there. So what variants should we expect from Bentley? Well, they did a rendering of a coupe version so that’s likely to be on their plate. They also intend to produce a more potent GT3 R in line with the Continental that bears the same name.

But CEO Durheimer has made it clear that none of these ideas are certain yet.

We are all aware that certain models and configurations of the Tesla Model X, as well as the Bentley Bentayga, both cost over six figures. So, what if both models were combined together? Well, it had already been done by Tesla tuner, TSportline. It gave this Model X such a grand makeover that anyone on the roads will definitely do a double take.

With over $60,000 worth of customizations, the model is stunning. For instance, it has a bespoke Bentley Red leather interior - with perforated leather and signature diamond stitching. The interior alone costs $25,000. And it’s not just that of course, it comes with two-toned gloss carbon fiber and Bentley leather steering wheel that costs an additional $3,200, plus a gloss carbon fiber interior package, and extra thick hand-carved floor mats.

The sound system, which is priced at $11,500, is a Rockford Fosgate 3sixty.3 EQ Processor that can individually tune 13 component speakers to create the perfect sound. The good thing is that this custom sound system does not draw power from the battery system.

Slated for its premiere at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show this coming week, Bentley introduces the Bentayga Mulliner ahead of its timetable. And what have we got so far? Well, let’s just say there’s an optional gold clock worth 154,000 USD and a champagne cooler to go with it.

Bentley’s “ultimate luxury SUV” was built by the British marque’s Mulliner bespoke division --- just in case the standard Bentayga model’s well-appointed cabin isn’t enough to please everyone on board. And that’s even after considering the fact that a regular Bentayga SUV already costs $200,000 and comes with an impressive level of luxury.

But since there is always room for improvement, it only means Bentley is no exception. However, if judging from the overall exterior, there seems to be nothing new as compared to the standard version of the SUV. At least in terms of shape.

Bentley launched its Bentayga ultra-luxury SUV not too long ago. In fact, the Bentley Bentayga is still on its second model year, following its introduction in 2015 as a 2016 model. It quickly became a symbol of true opulence as it perfectly combines power, luxury and grandeur. However, if you think that the Bentley Bentayga has become old news or just needs some extra frills, you can always turn to Lumma Design.

Based in Winterlingen, Germany, Lumma Design has been known for creating customized elements for different vehicles of different builds and makes. For the Bentley Bentayga, Lumma Design has created an exclusive wide body kit for both the SUV’s W12 petrol and diesel versions.

This customized creation -- called as Lumma Design CLR-B900 Wide-Body kit – further heightened the grandeur of the Bentley Bentayga. Likewise, this Lumma Design CLR-B900 Wide-Body kit made the Bentley Bentayga appear wider, resulting to a more imposing presence on the road.
