While most people would think that buying a flood-damaged Bentley wouldn’t be worth the hassle, this particular 2021 Bentayga Speed with water damage was recently sold by Copart.
The white 2021 Bentley Bentayga Speed was sold with a salvage title in New Jersey. The listing notes that the SUV has water/floor damage and while no specifics of the damage caused are provided, images show that the vehicle’s digital instrument cluster and central infotainment screen continue to work, so the water damage may not be catastrophic.
Dealing with a flood-damaged car with a salvage title can cause all kinds of headaches but perhaps one of the reasons why this Bentley was quickly sold is the fact that it has just 22 miles on the clock. We don’t know how much the SUV sold for but the listing says it has an estimated retail value exceeding $300,000, so whatever the sale price was, the new owner probably thinks they can repair it and turn a nice little profit.
The Bentley Bentayga Speed is powered by a 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged W12 pumping out 626 hp and 664 lb-ft (900 Nm) of torque between 1,500 rpm and 5,000 rpm. Coupled to this engine is an eight-speed automatic transmission powering all four wheels and rocketing the SUV to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.9 seconds and through to a 190 mph (306 km/h) top speed.
