  • Volkswagen Pike Peak

Vahsholtz is a Colorado native who comes from a family of Pikes Peak champions and has established a series of victories of his own.

This year, Bentley made a decision to take on the challenge to beat Range Rover Sport time.

Bentley will produce 10 special-edition versions of the Bentayga to celebrate its record time for a production SUV at the weekend's Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. The course consisted of a climb of nearly 5,000 feet through 156 corners.

Two-time champion Rhys Millen launched up the mountain in 10:49.9, climbing almost 5,000 vertical feet and 12.42 miles with 156 corners at an average speed of 66.5 mph. The manufacturer did fit the SUV with a roll cage, fire suppression, and more suited Pirelli tires, as well as fit more appropriate front seats for the driver while removing the rears altogether.




The Bentayga driven by Millen was liveried in Radium Satin and black chrome with the Bentley Black Specification carbon fiber body kit. Called the Pikes Peak Bentayga, it will be hand crafted by Mulliner - Bentley's in-house bespoke and coachbuilding division - as a homage to their hill climb challenger. Spoilsports. Just 10 Pikes Peak Editions will be made, with customers in the U.S. and Europe able to order one from August. Adaptive air suspension and Bentley's unique and world-first 48V electric active anti-roll control system are included, as is the Bentayga Sports Exhaust and Touring Specification pack.

Inside the vehicle, a Mulliner Design Colour Split marries Key Lime accents with Beluga leather, with Alcantara inserts to the seats and doors. There's plentiful Alcantara for the full "because race car" aesthetic, plus more carbon fibre and a Pikes Peak logo to match those that adorn the flanks. Limited to just 10 models, the SUV will feature a number of interior and exterior design elements in the same shade of Radium green that covers the Pikes Peak auto.

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.
