Each will be crafted in-house by Mulliner in either Beluga black or Radium green, with two-tone 22-inch wheels, black trim, special Pikes Peak graphics, and an interior decked out in black and lime leather and Alcantara trim, with Eliade technical cloth headliner and carbon-fiber trim. In every other way, the Pikes Peak auto is a standard Bentayga, finished in eye-catching Radium Satin paintwork accented by the all-black chrome and carbon fibre body kit provided by Bentley's Black Specification. The exterior changes are rounded off by subtle Pikes Peak badging on the front wings.

Inside the auto, a Mulliner Design Colour Split marries Key Lime accents with Beluga leather, with Alcantara inserts to the seats and doors.

At the hands of former Pikes Peak victor Rhys Millen, the W12 Bentayga covered the 12.42-mile hill route in 10 minutes, 49.9 seconds, breaking the existing SUV record of 12m 35.61, set by a Range Rover Sport in 2013.

Drawing links to the weekend's result is a Pikes Peak motif that sits on the front wheel arches. The vehicle gets a Pikes Peak logo on its carbonfibre fascia and numbered treadplates. Bentley's iconic 6.0-litre twin turbo W12 provides 600 bhp and 900 Nm, fed through a ZF eight speed automatic transmission to permanent four-wheel drive.

FDA Green Lights Marijuana-Based Pharmaceutical Drug
A bill was introduced to the House a year ago to legalize the use of marijuana, but it has yet to reach the floor for vote. The FDA paid attention, and Monday approved Epidiolex , the first-ever prescription drug derived from marijuana.


Other extras fitted as standard to the Pikes Peak include a sports exhaust and the Touring Specification, which features adaptive cruise control, a head-up display, lane-keeping assist and a night vision camera.

The auto used on the run featured one or two modifications to prepare it for the run.

Save for a few safety and racing modifications, such as a roll cage, racing seats, and a fire suppression system (the rear seats were also removed, and a production-spec Apkrapovic exhaust was fitted), the Bentayga racer is almost identical to the Bentayga Pikes Peak edition.

The Pikes Peak edition Bentayga will be available to be ordered both in the United States and Europe from August onwards. Let us know below.
