Bentley has given its all-new Bentayga SUV its Alpine debut at the site of the famous Kitzbuhel ski race in the Austrian Alps.

The Bentayga is the world's fastest and most powerful SUV in the world, and is set to further Bentley's already formidable reputation for producing the very best luxury vehicles.

The Bentayga's reveal in the Austrian Alps coincided with the famous ski race, with the car being placed at the bottom of the 'Streif' run.

Robert Engstler, regional director Bentley Europe, said: "We had a very strong year 2015 with Bentley growing our sales by 10 per cent in Europe to a total of 1,695.

"We were able to commit significantly to the success of our company and engage customers with Bentley vehicles.
