The Bentley Bentayga is India’s most expensive SUV, with prices starting from over Rs. 4 crores for the base variant. Owners spending this kind of money on an SUV don’t really patronize roadside garages. However, exceptions do exist. A Bentley Bentayga was spotted getting fixed at a roadside garage in Mumbai, prompting amused reactions by most car enthusiasts on social media outlets.
As you can see, the Bentayga in question is missing a fuel filler cap, and the grille also seems to have been removed for some repair. From the looks of it, it doesn’t look like a breakdown. The fuel filler cap could have been removed to match the paint of the car, and this is a routine thing that many local garages resort to in order to get the paint match right.
Other details on how and why the Bentayga landed at the roadside garage remain unknown for now. What’s also not clear is the variant of the Bentayga in question considering the fact that Bentley sells two variants of this SUV in India.
One variant used a V8 turbocharged petrol motor while the other goes full monty, getting a W12 turbocharged petrol motor. The V8 turbo petrol displaces 4 litres, and makes 542 Bhp-770 Nm. The W12, 12-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine produces 600 Bhp of peak power and 900 Nm of peak torque, making it the most powerful engine offered on an SUV sold in India.
An 8-speed torque converter automatic gearbox is standard with both engines, and so is an all-wheel-drive layout. Prices of the Bentayga V8 start from Rs. 4.45 crores, on-road Delhi, while the W12 variant retails for Rs. 5.06 crores. Like all Bentleys sold in India, the Bentayga is imported through the Completely Built Unit (CBU) route.
