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.
We know for a fact that the Bentayga already boasts a powerful 600hp (698PS) and 663lb-ft (900Nm) of torque under the hood, but the tuner can still pull out an extra “power upgrade” for the SUV’s 6.0-liter W12 twin turbo engine. Even more so, Startech is offering optional add-ons for those who can stretch out their budgets for custom wheels, carbon fiber elements, widebody kit and then some.
On second thought, the German tuner has released a special online configurator that lets you play with a host of products that are available such as your choice of a lowering kit, certain wheel design, measurement, aerodynamic enhancements as well as Startech’s color options. To be a bit more specific, Startech’s enhancements for the British marque’s luxury SUV also consist of illuminated tread plates, a rounded four-tip exhaust, 30mm hub centric wheel spacers and 18-piece widebody extension kit. Another part of Startech’s lavish treat is the brand-exclusive interior design with a number of colors and materials available for the upholstery.
For the latest Startech-tuned Bentayga SUV in Shadow Gold, the official Instagram account for the company said it was built with the help of Sahli & Frei AG, their official partner from Switzerland. There sure are plenty of options to choose from but customizing a Bentley comes with a price that more or less could already afford you a brand new Mercedes-Benz. The SUV alone should cost you around $230,000 and how much more if you tick all the boxes from the options list, can you imagine that?
