SUV’s get a lot of credit for their hauling capabilities. They can also run really fast… at record breaking speeds. The Bentley Bentayga claims a new record for a production SUV at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. The big Bentley’s 608 horsepower W12 engine blazed through the curvy 12.4-mile course climbing almost 5,000 ft in 10 minutes 49.9 seconds. They made a few changes to the SUV to comply with the event’s rules, like installing racing front seats, removing the rear seats, and adding a roll cage. Other than that, this record breaking Bentayga is like the standard production version.
