The Pikes Peak SUV record was set in 2013 by three-time overall Pikes Peak International Hill Climb champion Paul Dallenbach and his Range Rover Sport.

Mechanical specifications mirror those of the record-breaker, which means the vehicle has an active 48V anti-roll system, air suspension and the Bentayga Sports Exhaust as standard.

Driving a near-production-spec Bentayga, veteran hillclimber Rhys Millen drove up the Colorado mountain in 10:49.9.

"To take a luxury SUV with minimal modifications and be able to drive up this course in under 11 minutes is a huge testament to the performance and level of engineering in the Bentayga", said Millen.

To celebrate the occasion, Bentley will release a limited-edition version of its first production SUV. Most notable is the "Radium" paint finish - a more subdued black is also available - and 22-inch alloy wheels which feature highlights in the same lurid shade.

Doc has since lost some of his power, and Jerry West and Lawrence Frank are now in control - and free to trade Austin Rivers. With a big man heading to Los Angeles (Gortat), many are taking that as a sign that Jordan is likely headed elsewhere.

Bentley's Mulliner coachbuilder will build just 10 examples of the Pikes Peak Bentayga.

Inside the auto, a Mulliner Design Colour Split marries Key Lime accents with Beluga leather, with Alcantara inserts to the seats and doors.

Inside, the Pikes Peak's black theme features more bright green highlights, appearing on the door and dash trims, the seat stitching and floor mat piping. The steering wheel and gearlever are also trimmed in Alcantara, while the headlining is made with Eliade cloth. There are a few Pikes Peak logos spread about the interior, as well, in addition to numbered doorsill plates. The twin turbo unit produces 600bhp and 900nm, sending drive to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic gearbox.

Adaptive air suspension and Bentley's unique and world-first 48V electric active anti-roll control system (Bentley Dynamic Ride) ensure the flawless balance between refined ride comfort and optimum body control. Customers in the United States and Europe can order one starting in August. The Bentayga Sports Exhaust and Touring Specification pack are fitted as standard.
