The world’s most expensive SUV is about to get even more pricey. The luxury car modification company, Mansory, released the first images of its Bentley Bentayga model, enhancing several features of the SUV both on the inside and outside.

The first in-detail look at Mansory’s modified Bentayga follows previous announcements by the firm. The German company said months before they would customize the luxury SUV and offer it to the public like with many other vehicles in the past.

The Bentayga is the Bentley’s horse in the race for dominance over the luxury SUV market. The British manufacturer first hinted at the development of the Bentayga back in 2012, and now it is one of its best-selling vehicles domestically and abroad.

Bentley Bentayga: Specs and Features

Although luxury vehicle purists and Bentley itself might not entirely agree with Mansory’s modifications, the firm has certainly enhanced many aspects of an already great car.

The original Bentley Bentayga is a three-ton vehicle powered by Volkswagen’s signature twin-turbo W12 engine. The 6.0-liter powertrain provides the luxury SUV with an estimate of 600 horsepower and 664 lb/ft of torque at max capacities.

The Bentayga is also capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.1 seconds, and at maximum speed, it runs at 301 km/h. Bentley holds the speed record for a vehicle in this category.

Now, the tuned version conceived by Mansory somehow manages to pack even more impressive features on the Bentley Bentayga, starting with the looks.

Masonry’s take on the Bentayga comes in two color configurations so far: all black or white with black accents. The latter has been spotted on the streets of London, easily recognizable for its imposing black hood.

The Masonry version could cost double the original price

All the extra features of the Bentley Bentayga overhaul are made out of ultra-light carbon fiber, including the new hood with air vents, the front grille, the side skirts, the aerodynamic tailgate spoiler and the exhaust system.

However, the most exciting upgrade on Masonry’s Bentley Bentayga was the performance. The German company exceeded the top specs of the vehicle, bringing it to new max standards of 691 horsepower, 774 lb/ft of torque and 311 km/h.

Masonry will officially showcase the modified Bentley Bentayga at SEMA 2016 on November 1. The firm did not disclose a price range for the revamped luxury SUV, but it would not be crazy to think it could double the original +$200,000 price tag.
