Bentley’s new flagship arrives for a cause.

The luxury automotive world has changed. While the pinnacle of luxury driving had in the past came in the form of limousine-like sedans with impressive length, immense power, and peerless comfort, style, and luxury. However, the tastes of many car buyers have shifted to favor SUVs, and luxury SUVs are a larger segment than they have ever been before, and for many brands, including Bentley, serve as the flagship models, symbols of what a manufacturer can do when it pulls all the stops. The new Bentley Bentayga EWB, with its optional Airline Seat and technologies and features that are at an incredibly luxurious level, replaces the Mulsanne as Bentley’s uncompromising top-of-the-shelf model, and at Florida’s Naples Winter Wine Festival, the world’s first bespoke example of this incredible SUV was auctioned off for $1 million in order to benefit charity, namely the Naples Children & Education Foundation.
