Apart from Volkswagen setting a new course record with the I.D. And while you may mock, it did beat the record set by a Range Rover Sport in 2013 by a massive 1:45.6. That everything ran so smoothly is an incredible feeling, and the new record on Pikes Peak is the icing on the cake.
"We did it. We took the podium", said Dunne, who notably was the first motorcyclist ever to traverse the 4,720-foot Pikes Peak race course in less than 10 minutes in 2012. "I had a great run - the auto was planted all the way up and gave me the confidence I needed to push hard". This time working for the Germans, Millen set a new target time for SUVs of 10:49.9, averaging 66.5 miles per hour (107 km/h). A full roll-cage, race fire-suppression tech and proper harnesses were all added to the mix, while the 447kW/900Nm W12 was fitted with a unique Akrapovic exhaust. The models will be built by Bentley's coachbuilding division Mulliner, and finished in either "Beluga" black paintwork or Radium green, and come with two-tone 22-inch alloy wheels. But Bentley has laid its own claim to the prize, and cemented its standing this weekend at Pikes Peak.
The Black Specification is included, replacing all exterior chrome with gloss black components and adding a carbon fibre splitter, side skirts, diffuser and rear spoiler. 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. Subtle Pikes Peak motifs are seen on the front fenders.
