Bentley's Bentayga Apex Edition is making quite a stir in the industry because of its heavy use of carbon fibre. This limited-edition crossover, designed by Bentley's renowned in-house Mulliner bespoke division, is being praised as the 'most dynamic-looking and driving Bentayga ever.' Mulliner has added unique accents, exterior accessories, and interior finishes to the high-end luxury SUV, adding to the fact that it's a limited edition with just 20 units. The model is unique because of its creative use of lighter-weight carbon components, which reduce weight while improving performance. The special edition model weighs about 44kgs less than the normal Bentayga S, thanks to the use of 10-spoke 22-inch carbon fibre wheels and a new set of high-performance carbon-ceramic brake rotors, both of which are equally responsible for this weight reduction.

Bentley Bentayga Apex Edition: Design Details and Colour Options

In terms of appearance, Bentley's Mulliner team has created six meticulously curated liveries for the limited edition SUV, along with an option for a custom model. All six variants feature a racing stripe that runs from the nose to the tail over the hood and roof of the vehicle. Customers who purchased Bentley Continental GT Le Mans edition cars the previous year will have the option to pick a Bentayga Apex Edition with identical livery and trim. The sills and mirror caps of all variants are finished in carbon fibre, while both the front and rear spoilers have been updated, adding to the overall design of the SUV. 

Customers can choose from a variety of eye-catching colour combinations, such as Extreme Silver with Beluga stripe and Signal Yellow pinstripes or Pale Brodgar with Anthracite stripe and Bacalar bronze pinstripes. Theme 1 stands out in particular because of its Candy Red satin exterior with pinstripes and stripes in Anthracite and Arctic White.

The special edition model stays true to its performance-oriented nature with features like active anti-roll control, rear-wheel steering, and a free-flowing sports exhaust. It is powered by the well-known 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 generating 534.5bhp of maximum power and 770Nm of peak torque. This allows the car to reach a top speed of 290km/h and accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in 4.4 seconds.

All 20 units of the Bentayga Apex Edition will be available for sale globally, but the carmaker has not yet confirmed if any production slots will be available to customers in India. Even the pricing details of the special edition have not been announced yet, making enthusiasts wait impatiently for further announcements.
