Bentley Bentayga vs Range Rover Drag Race Is So Berserk You Have To See It
We all saw it coming. The Brits had to put two of their most berserk SUVs on the line and let them race each other in an unnecessary drag race. There is no logical reason for a drag race like this whatsoever. But there are many – many – fun related reasons. See, these two are massive SUVs with insanely large motors and slightly disgraceful price tags.
The numbers go down like this:
Thumping Land Rover Range Rover moves around 5,408 lbs, five-liter supercharged V8 with 503hp and top notch AutobiographySV trim. And then there is the price – $122,956. Quite an expensive piece of kit, wouldn’t you agree. But this behemoth falls to pieces when compared to its nemesis. The world’s fastest and most luxurious SUV of all time – the Bentayga.
Its 5,397 lbs include the six-liter V12 twin-turbocharged engine producing 600hp. Furthermore, every single produced will overshadow the luxury of the AutobiographySV and the sticker price proves it – cool $200,000. Bear in mind we are seeing here prices as tested in Britain.
AutoExpress put the two in a one-kilometer drag race (0.62 miles) letting them release all of the 1,103hp they dispose of with.
Just to put things into perspective of how berserk and insane these cars are, let us note the Bentley Bentayga reached freaking 100 mph in 9,6 seconds. That is faster than the 550 Maranello or even the Aston Martin Vantage V8 from 2008 (not this one). Imagine that.
As for the winner, you do not have to be too smart to figure it out. But you have to see just by how much the Bentley is faster than the Range Rover. It is incredible stuff. Yet, AutoExpress host does not seem to worry a lot about that. He’d take the Range Rover any time and so would we.
