Bentley Bentayga breaks SUV record at Pikes Peak

Dumas' new all-time record of 7m 57.148s is now top of the list of Pikes Peak champions, which includes such acclaimed drivers as Loeb, Walter Röhrl, Michèle Mouton, Stig Blomqvist, Nobuhiro (Monster) Tajima and the father and son duo of Rod and Rhys Millen.

The previous record holder, a Range Rover Sport driven by Paul Dallenbach, managed to set a time of 12:35.6 back in 2014. "I'm delighted to take the SUV record for Bentley and for everyone that's been involved in this project".

Winning the group with three straight victories will be a good sign, but getting past the next round is the ultimate goal . South Korea's president Moon Jae-in is set to be attendance, which Shin feels will be "very encouraging for our players".

At the hands of two-time Pikes Peak champion Rhys Millen, the Bentayga - which was production-spec other than racing seats, Pirelli tyres and a roll cage and fire suppression system - returned a time of 10:49.9 - taking almost two minutes off the previous record of 12:35.6 set in a Range Rover Sport back in 2014.

Bentley and Kiwi hillclimb legend Rhys Millen smashed the Production SUV record with the Bentayga at the recent Pikes Peak Hillclimb event. With the I.D. R Pikes Peak, Volkswagen has created an extraordinary racing vehicle, specifically tailored to the demands of the most famous of hill climbs: a combination of minimum weight, as much downforce as possible, and maximum power and designed to achieve the best possible performance. Pirelli tires and a production-specification Akrapovic sports exhaust were also added. A Pikes Peak logo has been added to the carbon fiber fascias and numbered Pikes Peak tread plates.

In all competitions, Brazil are unbeaten in 13 matches (W9 D4 L0), conceding just three goals in that run. Switzerland also advanced after a 2-2 draw with Costa Rica and will next face Sweden on Tuesday in St.

The Pikes Peak Bentayga will be available to order from August. All exterior chrome has been swapped for gloss black as part of the exterior black pack, and there's a "subtle" Pikes Peak graphic on the front fenders. Inside you will find Beluga leather with Key Lime accents, Alcantara steering wheel, gear lever, and door inserts, and Eliade cloth headlining.

The result? Six hundred horsepower and 663 foot-pounds of torque (at sea level), sent to ZF's eight speed automatic transmission and permanent four-wheel drive. Order books will open in August for USA and European customers.
