The shooting of the new Bentayga Diesel, the first diesel in Bentley’s history has taken place in an amazing setting: Meran in the Italian Dolomites. Unique locations challenging the Bentayga, „a SUV for every kind of journey“ to show it’s particular combination of practicality, power and luxury with innovative technology.
The first stop was the famous vinery Manincor in Kaltern, the largest wine estate in South Tyrol, since 1606 a family operation with charm and personality – in legacy to the meaning of the family name itself because „Man-in-cor“ means roughly „Hand on heart“.
Then there was the Jaufenpass waiting for the Bentley Bentayga Diesel with its wonderful snowy mountain landscape on 2094 meters. Curvy roads for amazing photographs taken by Ken Schluchtmann from a flying helicopter to catch the very essence of the car performance with its refined 8-cylinder diesel engine.
The trip ended in the new luxury resort San Luis, opened just a couple of month ago at Avelengo not far from Meran. In the middle of a 40 hectares alpine park with a beautiful lake there are wooden chalets and tree-houses welcoming the guests in a minimal yet balanced and comfortable style in close relation to the breathtaking nature of the Dolomites.
A unique backdrop for a one-of-a-kind SUV!
