Targeting the security and defense sectors, INKAS has announced the first-ever armored Bentley Bentayga SUV
“The Bentley Bentayga, when equipped with its W12 powertrain, is one of the fastest luxury SUVs in the market today; our priority was to leverage the vehicle’s value by adding high-quality ballistic characteristics without sacrificing its technical performance,” said David Khazanski, CEO, INKAS® Armored Vehicle Manufacturing. “We made use of innovative materials which are lightweight, but at the same time certified to all globally-recognized ballistic standards. This vehicle successfully protects its passengers from assault rifles and grenades, but does not behave too differently on the road from an unarmored Bentayga.” 

The vehicle is armored to meet CEN 1063 BR6 ballistic standards and provides additional ballistic protection for fuel, battery and electronic control unit compartments. Ballistic protection encompasses the vehicle with 360-degree, floor-to-roof coverage. The armored Bentley Bentayga can withstand fire from high-power rifles such as AK47s and AR10s as well as the simultaneous detonation of two DM51 grenades placed beneath the vehicle’s floor. Additional equipment includes emergency lights mounted behind the vehicle’s front grille, as well as a siren and PA system. Additional possible upgrades include tail pipe protection, smoke screen system, engine bay fire suppression system and electric door handles.

The vehicle offers a soft all-terrain and all-purpose driving experience supported by Bentley’s upgraded four-level air-suspension. In addition to that, a 48-volt active anti-roll bar aids on-road handling and improves ride comfort. The performance is powered by a 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12 producing 600 horsepower and 664 lb. ft. of torque with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The Armored Bentayga represents the classic Bentley look and feeling of quality – the handcrafted cabin with rich finishes, bespoke wood veneer, aluminum vents and posh chrome bezels on the switchgear and panels.  The luxurious vehicle has a functional and intuitive eight-inch infotainment center console, adaptive cruise control, precise front and rear parking sensors, lane keep assistance, Apple CarPlay & Android Auto.
