KXIP vs KKR Live Score

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.

The Bentayga used in the race only had minimal modifications, like unique front seats, the rear seats were removed, and a roll cage and fire suppression system were installed.

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. The Pikes Peak Bentayga is being created by Mulliner and only ten examples will be produced.

Speaking after the event, Romain Dumas declared: "That everything ran so smoothly is an incredible feeling, and the new record on Pikes Peak is the icing on the cake".

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

Understandably, Bentley want to shout about the Bentayga's achievement, so they've announced a new limited edition Bentayga - the Bentley Bentayga Pikes Peak. The Pikes Peak ditches the regular Bentayga's brightwork in favour of black trim.

Bentley's "Black Specification" will see the chrome detailing replaced with gloss black and carbon fibre details, while Pikes Peak badges will also be added. Aside from that, only an Akrapovic exhaust and specific Pirelli tires were fitted.

Drawing links to the weekend's result is a Pikes Peak motif that sits on the front wheel arches. The interior is finished in Beluga leather with Alcantara and Key lime accents. Bentley plans to issue a limited edition model celebrating the achievement. Pikes Peak logos can be found on the cabin's carbon fiber fascias, too, and a numbered plate signifies the SUV's limited-edition status.

Under the skin it's the Bentayga's 6.0 litre W12 with 600bhp, ZF eight-speed 'box, four-wheel drive, Adaptive Air Suspension, 48V electric active anti-roll control, Bentley Sports exhaust and Touring Specification Pack.

The Pikes Peak Bentayga will be available to order from August for customers in the United States and Europe.
