A Breitling clock has also been fitted to the centre console, which features a mother-of-pearl face and diamond jewelling.

‘Design Series’ badging is included on the seats and on the exterior of the Bentayga V8.

With its recently introduced V8 petrol engine the luxury SUV, which develops 550hp and 770Nm of torque – completing the 0-60mph sprint in 4.4 secondsand capable of hitting a maximum speed of 180mph.
