With a starting price of $285,000 USD ($395,000 NZ), Bentley’s latest flagship model probably won’t be a common sight on kiwi roads. For the money you get a 505-horsepower, 725 lb-ft, petrol-powered 6.75-litre monster V8 engine sitting behind the automaker’s trademark mesh grille and four round lights.

Also included in the hefty price will be an eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission, 16.54-inch front and 15.5-inch rear carbon ceramic brakes and 20-inch wheels. There’s also loads of modern tech like a 2,200-watt stereo and the brand’s new Driver Dynamics Control system, which comes with “Bentley,” “Sport,” “Comfort” and user-definable “Custom” modes.

If you want to buy one production is set to begin at the Crewe factory in England in the second quarter of 2010, and the first deliveries will go out later next year. Get yours in one of 114 available paint colors, 21 carpet shades, nine wood veneers and 24 interior leather hides. You will need to order quickly as Bentley is reporting that early customer interest has already exceeded 2010 production targets.
