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

I think our 2 cars are probably the oldest down our road there are  some run of the mill euro boxes & a couple of newish Beemers & Mercs but ours are the only ones that are garaged, most residents garages are full of junk ..

....

There's a clip on YouTube where someone was filming an illegally parked Maybach as the recovery truck came to remove it. The recovery had to be aborted as the jib alarm went off because the Maybach was too heavy for it.  ;D

 ;D ;D ;D ;D (Had to quote it again just for TB)

Re other comments - we also probably have the oldest cars down the stre.. actually, no, we don't, I think Nico takes that spot across the road with his '04 Spec-B Legacy (basically an STi Impreza with a boot), then it's probably us with '06, '07 and '09 cars. Everyone else has nearly new boring stuff. Except maybe the brand new MX-5 with the obnoxious exhaust usually seen going from 0-50 (in a 30) right out of his driveway ;D

As owner of a P-reg I was sorely disappointed to realise we're the third oldest car in the street! There's another P-reg up the road - a Defender 110, and a black Chevette (tax disc shows hasnt been on the road since about 2004 or something like) SO I dont even get the title of oldest Vauxhall.   ::)

And at present I'm not really sure which out of my car and the Chevette which hasn't run in 15 ish years, counts as the more roadworthy  :D

Brand new BMW X3 which the taxpayer pays for because their kid is disabled misbehaves  ::), then the usual crop of euro/jap/korea boxes all 3-10 yrs old. Honda CRZ, XF, early Impreza estate are the nearest thing to 'interesting' cars on the street.

And then, for no apparent reason, the other night there was a matt black Lambo Huracan!  :o

Someone getting their 'delivery' .. ;D

There's apparently a Mk1 Escort around here somewhere, but I've never seen it - probably living in a garage as an "investment".

You can't really miss the Audi R8, Audi S8 or Audi Q7 that live around the corner though - they all have rather loud exhausts.. and belong to the same person ;D I think the Cobra might be louder if I ever finish it :-X ;D
