RESTON, Va., Nov. 30, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Bentley Motors is proud to announce the partnership with The Preserve Sporting Club & Residences, located on 3,500 pristine forested acres in Richmond, Rhode Island. The joint venture offers adventure and wellness seekers one-of-a-kind automotive experiences behind the wheel of the Bentayga. The Bentayga rises to the occasion as the ultimate go-anywhere SUV, combining the abilities of a performance-orientated Grand Tourer with genuine off-road ability encapsulated in one luxurious package.
Launched in 2019, the Preserve was conceived as an unparalleled luxury resort focused on shaping experiences focused on elevated opportunities within unspoiled nature and preserving the protected land and the Carolina Management Area, which includes developing wildlife sanctuaries and strategic land donations.
The Preserve grants access for guests to develop driving skills with expert coaching at the Bentley Off-Road Driving Experience, a newly developed test track with steep inclines and descents, featuring Bentayga V8 with All-Terrain specification
s. Equipped with an enhanced Bentley Dynamic Ride – the world’s first 48V active anti-roll control system, the Bentayga accommodates the widest range of on and off-road drive settings of any SUV available.
The offering expands with three specifically tailored on-property excursions where guests are encouraged to choose their adventure.
Each fitted with custom designed rear cargo boxes wrapped in color matched hide to stow house equipment for shooting sports, fly fishing or picnicking. The Mulliner design teamed up with The Preserve to design three Bentayga befitting of the setting drawing inspiration from the setting while keeping in the spirit of outdoor adventure.
- The first features a Havana colored exterior, personalized The Preserve logo welcome lamps, Dark Burr Walnut with cross banding and specially designed cargo box to house shotguns, ammunition, a cleaning kit, and snap caps.
- The second Bentayga sports a beautifully serene Moonbeam over Dark Sapphire Duo-Tone exterior, high-gloss crown-cut Walnut with cross-banding fascia and fly fishing gear aptly organized in the boot.
- And the third, the Picnic Bentayga sports Cumbrian Green exterior, high gloss Dark Fiddleback Eucalyptus with cross-banding and includes a rear cargo box designed for upscale picnicking and a leisurely afternoon.
While chauffeured between events in a finely specified Bentayga Extended Wheelbase, the time between activities is dedicated to the on-board wellness of its occupants. The Bentayga features world-first wellness technology embedded within the cabin, providing the optimum balance between ultimate ride comfort, handling and body control. Each experience Bentayga is specified to fit the needs of the experience and feature bespoke purpose-built cargo boxes that fit to the tailgate rails in addition to personalized Preserve puddle lamps and embroidered emblems.
The Bentayga Extended Wheelbase is powered by Bentley’s 4.0-liter, 32-valve dual twin-scroll turbocharged V8 petrol engine, which combines immense power with impressive fuel economy. Mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox, the V8 offers supercar performance, developing 542 bhp and 568 lb. ft of torque, resulting in a top speed of 180 mph and 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds.
“We are excited to welcome guests to the Bentley Experiences at The Preserve to take part in incredible driving adventures, all offering wellness and self-discovery while behind the wheel of Bentayga,” says Christophe Georges, President and CEO of Bentley Americas. “This offering compliments a shared vision for creating memorable and accessible Bentley Extraordinary Journeys while highlighting craftsmanship, innovation, wellness and sustainability.” Preserve Sporting Club Chairman Paul Mihailides echoes Georges’ sentiment and expresses his enthusiasm for the new partnership saying “the Preserve and Bentley are perfectly paired to offer distinguished sportsmen and luxury motor enthusiasts alike an unparalleled experience in the sporting arena.”
