New Bentley Bentayga Azure First Edition launched 

The Bentayga Azure First Edition is an even more luxurious version of Bentley’s popular SUV 

Celebrating the release of the Bentley Bentayga EWB, the British luxury car maker has launched the Azure First Edition - a limited edition model of the new long-wheelbase Bentayga

Bentley has garnished the Azure First Edition with touches to help it stand out from the regular Azure model. There’s ‘First Edition’ badging inside and out as well as new embroidery on the seats. It also adds a few extra options as standard - including quilted seats unique to the First Edition, Bentley’s LED ‘Diamond Illumination’ welcome lights and Naim for Bentley – a 1,720-watt, 20-speaker in-car sound system. 

As with the standard Azure, the First Edition gets 22-inch ten-spoke wheels, new lower bumper grilles, mood lighting and 10.1” screens on the backs of the front seats. 

There’s also plenty of scope for customisation with over 60 exterior colours to choose from along with a variety of interior finishes such as crown cut walnut, dark burr walnut and Koa, piano linen by Mulliner or dark tint diamond brushed aluminium.

Under the bonnet sits the same twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine, producing 542bhp and 770Nm of torque. Bentley claims the Bentayga EWB is good for a 0-60mph time of 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 180mph. 

The First Edition will be on sale for the first 12 months of Bentayga EWB production and while there’s no word on pricing, we can expect it to cost north of £200,000.
