Bentley has unveiled the Bentayga First Edition to a group of VIP customers at the Sunset Marquis Hotel in Los Angeles, California.

Described as the "ultimate expression of the Bentayga’s spirit," the limited edition model has Union Jack badging and 22-inch polished wheels with black painted accents.

Bigger changes occur in the cabin as buyers will discover ‘Diamond within Diamond’ quilting, unique contrast stitching and a bespoke ambient lighting system.  The model also has illuminated sill plates, "First Edition" embroidery on the seats and a Union Jack graphic on the dashboard.

Like the standard model, power is provided by a twin-turbo 6.0-liter W12 engine that produces 608 PS (600 bhp / 447kW) and 900 Nm (663 lb-ft) of torque.  It is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission and a four-wheel drive system which enables the crossover to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.0 seconds before hitting a top speed of 187 mph (301 km/h). 

Production will be limited to 608 units and each customer will receive a unique Breitling watch that has an all-black case, a black mother-of-pearl dial and bronzetoned hands that match the "livery of the first Bentayga presented to the public."  There will be three watch variants including the Emergency which features an integrated dual frequency personal locator beacon, the Cockpit B50 which has an "electronic multifunction caliber" and the automatic Chronomat 38 which is designed for women.
