Apart from being unreasonably big, unnecessary luxurious, and unfathomably expensive, Bentley Bentayga also wants to be known as one of the world’s fastest and best performing SUVs. That is the point the British automaker tried to drive home at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed by hiring 74-year-old racing driver Derek Bell for the drive up the hill.

Don’t think for a second, though, that old Derek is going to stop half way up the 1.16 mile course to have a wee in the bushes. For one thing, this awesome dude has in his resume no less than five Le Mans wins. What’s more, he’d been involved from the very beginning in the development of Bentley Bentayga. He knows this beast inside out:
