Bentley adds Akrapovič sports exhaust to new Bentayga's options list

By JAY WONG | 7 August 2020

LONDON: Bentley has four new accessories collections for customers of the new Bentayga and that means an Akrapovič sports exhaust system is now in the options list.

The accessories collection is made up of the Exterior, Interior, Touring and Protection packages.

The sports exhaust is a lightweight system that's made from high-grade titanium and consists of a set of link pipes, a muffler, and two sets of oval tailpipes, which have been engraved with the Bentley and Akrapovič logos and specially coated for increased durability and protection.

The central silencer is replaced with straight pipes, which channel the exhaust gases into the customer rear muffler where they are swirled through internal baffles to create a more characterful voice.

Through close cooperation between the two companies, the exhaust system has been specifically designed for the Bentayga and uses complex parts cast in Akrapovič’s in-house foundry, including the housings of the exhaust valves, which offer added control over the sound of the exhaust for discerning users.

The system is inspired by the special exhaust system made by Akrapovič for Bentley’s Pikes Peak Bentayga that set a new record for production SUVs on the infamous Pikes Peak hill climb in 2018.

It is available now for the Bentayga V8 in Bentley’s North American and Middle East markets, while a version of the exhaust for the first generation Bentayga W12 is available globally as an aftersales accessory.

The Exterior accessories package is designed for customers looking to accentuate the look and sound of their Bentayga.

Along with the Akrapovič exhaust system, another performance-inspired option is specially-developed high-gloss carbon fibre mirror cowls, which can be paired with Bentley’s Blackline Specification that replaces all exterior bright chrome with gloss black versions.

The Bentayga can also be fitted with a fixed sidestep or added practicality and convenience during ingress or egress and can be had in either Black Gloss, Carbon or Moonbeam painted finish.

A rubber tread features diamond quilting along the full length of the vehicle between the wheel arches and provides grip under-foot.

The Interior Range of accessories offers a relaxation pack that includes leather-trimmed scatter cushions and additional footrests upholstered in deep pile carpet - both personalised to the car by matching the main hide and interior carpet colour.

A bespoke luggage set offers a combination of a traditional luggage case and a casual weekender.

The cases can open fully flat while retaining a casual soft look when closed and featuring a unique ‘V’ shape inspired by the design language of the Bentayga.

Standard luggage is also available as an option in Beluga calf leather.

There are also golf bags available which are water-resistant and will use the interior's design cues to match while featuring diamond-quilted details for the Cart and Stand Bags.

Moving to the Touring Range, these accessories will help to expand the Bentayga's 484-litre boot capacity and also throw in a roof box.

All of which will give its owner the capability to carry up to three bikes or six sets of skis and storage for other valuables.

Branded crossbars are the base of Bentayga’s roof-mounted storage system, and secure the roof box or ski and snowboard carrier to the car.

Designed to support aerodynamic performance, they lock securely to the roof rails to ensure safe transit in all conditions.

Similarly, the ski and snowboard carrier holds up to four snowboards or six sets of skis.

Elegantly styled to complement the vehicle’s shape, the lockable roof box offers secure storage and has a load capacity of 75kg and a volume of 320 litres.

A multi-functional boot stowage box option fits securely to the boot floor and allows an internal drawer to slide out.

The drawer can be divided into two separate sections and offers secure storage for valuables.

The interior walls and floor are also covered with a durable and waterproof thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) and an integrated drain plug enables any water or dirt to be removed easily.

With a capacity of up to 100 litres, it is an ideal way to transport wet sporting equipment or clothing.

The storage box is finished in an anodised satin finish to match the bootload rails.

Providing an effective method to reach the back of the boot, the load assist tray option is integrated into the boot runners and slides out allowing for easy access to stored items.

The tray has a load capacity of 300kg and is manufactured from lightweight aluminium.

Two versions of the Bentley Cycle Carrier are available, to carry two or three bikes mounted to the car via the tow bar.

The boot is still accessible when the carrier is in use and when not, it can be folded away for easy storage.

The protection range consists of car covers, heavy-duty interior mats and mud flaps.

Two different exterior covers are available, both shaped to match the contours of the new Bentayga.

The indoor cover offers an extra barrier against moisture and dust, even when stored inside, while the outdoor cover offers additional waterproofing and ensures the paint finish and bright ware is protected from extreme weather and pollution.

Specifically designed for the Bentayga, the mud flaps have been developed to protect the car’s paintwork and help maintain its exterior condition.

Made from a durable TPE and secured to the body of the car, they have been styled by the design team in Crewe, England, to complement the styling cues of the Bentayga while still providing an extra barrier from road debris.

For adverse conditions, heavy-duty floor mats provide high-quality protection and excellent grip, even when wet.

Tailored to fit perfectly within each individual footwell, the branded floor mats have raised edges to protect the existing carpets.

Lastly, at the rear of the vehicle is the bumper protector which will help to keep the upper surface of the rear bumper free from scratches and or damage, in addition to the heavy-duty boot mat to protect the boot floor.
