Mulliner adds huge carbon fiber wheels to the Bentayga option list
Bentley’s in-house customizer has teamed up with Italy-based Bucci Composites to produce what it claims to be the world’s largest carbon-fiber wheel so far. The 22-inch set should hit production this year.
Only owners of the Bentayga SUV upgraded with the Styling Specification package will be able to order the wheels. The Styling kit consists of a rear diffuser, side sill extensions and a front splitter made of carbon.
The new rims are TÜV-approved, and the tests have shown that they are not only lighter, but also more rigid than alloy wheels. The manufacturer claims they improve handling and reduce brake path.
It remains unknown whether there is a way to have the rims installed on other Bentley models. Prices are pending.
