On November 27th, the first luxury SUV Bentley Bentayga saw first daylight and left the assembly line at Bentley’s iconic headquarters in Crewe, UK.
This first Bentley Bentayga in the color Anthracite was handcrafted in 130 hours in their totally new assemblage line, which was part of an £840 million investment program. This investment program added 1,500 new jobs and now the first Bentaygas are rolling off the line and will be distributed to new customers early January 2016.
Bentley British handcrafted car
Michael Straughan, Bentley’s Member of the Board for Manufacturing, addressed the company’s 4,000-strong workforce as the car was driven from the final production stage. He said: “This is a proud moment for the entire company. It’s been four years in the making and is a celebration of a sector-defining British handcrafted car.
“Bentayga is the Bentley of SUVs, with a level of attention to detail only achievable thanks to the outstanding skill of a British workforce that blends exceptional craft and skill with modern production techniques and materials.”
