Peak International Hill Climb record by Volkswagen electric car

Peak International Hill Climb record by Volkswagen electric car

Stock tires were replaced with Pirelli DOT-marked hoops and a production-specification Akrapovic sports exhaust was also bolted on.

The Bentayga used in the race only had minimal modifications, like unique front seats, the rear seats were removed, and a roll cage and fire suppression system were installed.

"What an incredible machine". Speaking of production cars, Bentley is celebrating its Pikes Peak triumph with a run of 10 special-edition Bentayga Pikes Peak Editions, outfitted to look like the hillclimb-ready athlete from the weekend. The Bentayga was driven by two time world champion Rhys Millen and Bentley completed the hill climb in just 10 minutes and 49.9 sec which is nearly two seconds faster than Range Rover Sport at an average speed of 107 kmph around the course. In every other way, the Pikes Peak vehicle 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.

Just 10 Pikes Peak Edition cars will be made, and they're earmarked for the United Kingdom and U.S., so don't expect to see one on the road in Australia anytime soon. Every piece of chrome is also replaced with black components, and carbon fiber adorns the splitter, side skirts, diffuser, and rear spoiler. "The Volkswagen I.D. R Pikes Peak has now set the fastest time in the history of this hill climb, which spans more than 100 years-that speaks volumes for electric mobility", he added. The interior is finished in Beluga leather with Alcantara and Key lime accents.

Bentley are marking the record-breaking feat with a new Limited Edition Bentayga. It produces 600bhp and 664lb ft of torque, and drives all four wheels via a ZF eight-speed automatic gearbox. Bentley attributes the Bentayga's 600-hp W12 engine, adaptive air suspension, active electric 48V anti-roll control and carbon ceramic brakes for helping it achieve the record. The special edition model booking begins from August and it will be available in USA and Europe.
