The first car is a Bentayga Speed SUV with bespoke features centered around iconic ballet moves - each vehicle in the collection will focus on a specific motion of what is believed to be one of the most graceful and emotive expressions of human artistry.

There will be six vehicles in total, all of which boasting a different exterior paint (three of them will have two-tone exteriors).

As far as this one is concerned, the aesthetic is comprised of dark tint headlights, body-colored side skirts, bespoke front and rear bumpers, plus an elongated tailgate spoiler. Other visual highlights include the dark tint radiator and bumper grilles, unique 22-inch wheels and special Russian Heritage LED welcome lighting.

Inside, you’ll find dark accents throughout the seats and interior trim, to go with the contrast stitching, bespoke ballet embroidery and a contemporary ballet overlay on the passenger fascia.

“We are excited to present the exclusive Bentayga Speed Russian Heritage Collection to our Russian customers. This project is built on the passion for perfection, which Bentley shares with such a grand and sophisticated art as ballet, the central motif of this year’s limited edition. These six unique SUVs will be delivered by Bentley Moscow and Moscow-Volgogradskiy at the end of the year, as all of the cars are already allocated,” said Christian Schlick, head of Bentley Russia.

Despite having such a graceful theme, there’s nothing, shall we say “subtle”, about this Bentayga Speed’s performance characteristics. It all starts with the 6.0-liter twin turbocharged W12 engine, which produces 626 hp (635 ps) and 664 lb-ft (900 Nm) of torque. Floor the throttle and you’ll be doing 62 mph (100 kph) in 3.9 seconds, on your way to a top speed of 190 mph (306 kph).
