According to Forbes magazine, the Bentayga starts at $229,100 before tax and is a more "svelte and handsome" version its ugly concept forbear. 

The car will be shown to the public for the first time at the Frankfurt Car Show this month. Sales will start in Europe, the Middle East, followed by China and US, late in the second quarter.

For motor-heads: the sporty automobile has a  6.0 liter, 12-cylinder twin-turbo engine -  a version of which is set to appear in the Audi A8 limousine and Volkswagen Phaeton II - which takes you to 60 mph in just four seconds.
