Exactly. It even uses the same basic body as the new Q7 (windscreen, pillars, doors minus sheetmetal), so it's mostly a Q7 with a Golf 6 like facelift, a new interior and a different badge. In my eyes not worth the price premium. Their USP of a top speed of 301 km/h sounds like something form 1982 (when top speed was still THE trump), and given weight and center of gravity, is nothing you should explore.....

Interesting to try this monster. I think that they could make the better shape, hope a facelift will look much better:)

After the rappers, ballers, and urban pharmaceutical consultants buy this and slap on the 24s, I cannot see much of a market for this. I think I'd rather have a Cadillac Escalade or a Range Rover. The VW Toerag is an unimpressive base to begin with and while I have not seen the new Q7 version of it, this Bentley Bentiguan looks very half-a$$ed to the point of evoking a Cadillac Cimarron kind of wrongness.

I have seen several new Q7s. VW was doing some kind of product line shoot in our town a short while ago, and it's a complete mess. OT the R8 and TT looked better than I expected.
