You were not supposed to see the Bentley Bentayga just yet. So here it is.
Bentley's been dripping out dribs and drabs of information about their new SUV for years now like an old man with prostate issues, and we finally have one new drab. It'll be called the Bentley Bantayga, and it'll have these sweet B-shaped vents.
I've just stumbled upon an #ancient #conspiracy of #international #theft and #stealing, and I'm about to BLOW THE LID OFF IT. It just so happens that Bentley's concept SUV from 2012 did not have styling influenced by the rest of the Bentley lineup, as you thought. It was something much, much more proletariat.

Stephen Colbert used to ask liberals if George W. Bush was a "great president" or "the greatest president" as sort of a taunt.

Ferrari wagon-izations and hypercars bathed in magnetizing yellow are just a couple hints the Sultan of Brunei is perhaps the most Jalopnik head of state in the whole world.
