Bentley is by far known as the world’s best luxury car producer in the past century. Bentley Motors Limited is a British manufacturer and marketer of luxury cars and SUVs, and a subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group since 1998. Headquartered in Crewe, England, the company was founded as Bentley Motors Limited by W. O. Bentley in 1919 in Cricklewood, North London, and became widely known for winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1924, 1927, 1928, 1929, and 1930.
Bentley recently came up with a top-notch SUV, the Bentayga a sheer and commanding design with top innovative technology. This all new-SUV can reach 100kmph in less than five seconds, equipped with a 6-liter W12 engine it truly roars on the road. It is also equipped with dynamic control; it consists of a 48-volt electric motor to cut down the body topple effect when the car is cornering at high speeds. This feature is a worthy add-on, giving complete control to the driver.
These features are nothing compared to the groundbreaking innovation they have made in terms of their wheels. These wheels are completely manufactured with carbon fiber alloy, this is the world’s largest full carbon fiber alloy wheel, having a diameter of 22 inches. This wheel reduces almost 6kgs of weight from the wheel weightage. Saving over 20kgs in the overall build of the car, further, it passed the German TUV (a test conducted on wheels to check its integrity) this carbon fiber alloy wheel, surpassed the conventional aluminum alloy wheel.
The wheel has been developed for over five years. Apart from having better strength, as it is made of a fibrous structure it has a better braking and suspension system compared to those conventional wheels. These wheels were processed by a patented process that uses Resin Transfer Moulding, which consists of stacking prescribed carbon fiber to create a 3D surface.
The advancement of technologies is always growing and will never end, we as consumers must always appreciate such products and must be aware of such innovations.
