Maybach have form for producing some right mingers, so I'm sure it will fit in just fine.

The interior is clearly set up to appeal to the middle Eastern aesthetic, which give it costs $200k up makes sense.

I wouldn't turn down a ride in the back of one mind.

The Bentayga looks like the latest London Cabs ;D

But yes, its all targeted at the middle east, china etc where taste is lacking and you get a sale based on how many tacky displays and LEDs you have fitted

A new neighbour seems to have replaced his Audi R8 with a black Bentayga ..... I hadn't thought about the taxi look, but you're right  ;D

There's another Bentayga knocking about locally in matt grey .... looks bl**dy horrible!

I think I can go one worse .. there's a Bentayga down our road in gold. I mean, sparkly turd colour, but I'm sure they sell it as gold..

Amazes me that people who can afford to buy anything end up being conned into wasting thousands on pig ugly vehicles, as said earlier absolutely no taste at all.

I don't think that I currently* have the oldest car in my road... But the A reg Granada I had when we moved in twenty years ago certainly was...  ::)

* The S reg Focus was, and the Trolley shares the oldest spot. Although the funny thing is that the only people who care, all drive far newer cars ;D
