Bentley Bentayga sets blistering pace to break record at Pikes Peak International Hill Climb

Boasting bespoke craftsmanship, inimitable poise, and some of the most prestigious nameplates in the premium luxury car market, Bentley Motors has always positioned itself head and shoulders above the competition. Always daring to push the boundaries to design and performance, the experience of driving a Bentley car leaves a distinct impression on its drivers and undoubtedly elicits some envy from passersby. And now we can happily report that Bentley Motors has taken its cars to new heights quite literally as the Bentley Bentayga recently broke the record for production SUVs at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.

Now, Bentley cars have excelled in competitions of speed and design before, but the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is unlike any other automotive contest. On a course designed to truly test the limits of a car's speed, stamina, and handling prowess, the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb challenges competitors to ascend over 12,000 feet along a 12.42 mile long course in the high mountains of Colorado. However, even with the bone-shaking altitude and 156 hair-raising turns in the course, the Bentley Bentayga crossed the finish line in a scant 10:49.9, clocking an average speed of 66.5 miles per hour in the process.

Naturally, this is a huge honor for Bentley Motors and veteran driver Rhys Millen, who took the wheel on the record-breaking run. But to all of us here at Rusnak Auto Group, seeing the Bentley Bentayga break records isn't all that surprising. This dramatically designed and meticulously engineered premium luxury SUV is the stuff automotive dreams are made of. And if you'd like to make your automotive dreams come true, we'd invite you to visit our Rusnak Auto Group showrooms here in Southern California to browse our selection of new Bentley Motors models, including record-breaking luxury SUVs like the Bentley Bentayga, and let us help you find the perfect one to fit your lifestyle.
