Queen Elizabeth to be first owner of the new Bentley 4×4
Britain’s Queen Elizabeth is set to be the first owner of the new Bentley 4×4.
The 89-year-old royal – who became the longest reigning monarch last week – will reportedly trade her iconic green Land Rover for the new £160,000 Bentayga after the British luxury automaker “reserved her the number one car.”
Her Majesty, who test drove the luxury motor around her Balmoral Castle in Aberdeenshire a few weeks ago, will use the car for hunting and deer stalking on her Scottish estate.
A spokesman for Bentley told the Daily Mail newspaper: “Bentley Motors has a long standing relationship with the Royal Family, and is proud to be Warrant Holders to both HM The Queen and HRH The Prince of Wales.
“As part of this relationship, we try to inform The Royal Household of product developments before they are made public, and had the pleasure of presenting Bentley Bentayga in advance of its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show.”
He added: “We will continue to supply motor cars to the Royal Family as and when needed.”
The vehicle is thought to be “the most powerful, luxurious, and exclusive sports utility vehicle in the world” as it boasts a six-litre twin-turbo-charged engine and lavish interiors.
Meanwhile, this isn’t the first time Bentley has presented the monarch with one of its prestigious cars as it also gave her a Bentley State Limousine for her Golden Jubilee in 2002.
