According to Andy Kalmowitz’s pen Jalopnikwhen he held the Bentley Bentayga key in his hand, every other car key he had ever held became blurred.

The Bentley Bentayga itself is already a great car. But many things on the Bentayga can also appear in supercars or other high-end models, except for the only thing that is the key. When it comes to parting, Kalmowitz will of course miss the car, but even more so the key.

He wants to try to put on the scale to compare the Bentley Bentayga key with the keys to two cars he owns, which are BMW Z4 and Ford Explorer. But he realized they couldn’t be placed side by side at all.

Kalmowitz decided to review so everyone can understand why the Bentley Bentayga key is so special.

The first thing is that the Bentley Bentayga key is very heavy. He does not know what is inside, but weighs 87g while the total weight of his Z4 and Explorer keys is only 81g. That feeling of being in the hand makes it easy to think that the key is made from a piece of monolithic granite.

The second is the “very nice” touch. The piano black plastic on the front gives it a premium look and also makes it easier to hold the keys. But the most amazing touch points are the edges of the key. The metal rim gives the feeling that you are really the most important person in the world. The same textured metal is also used throughout the Bentley interior. Not even a Range Rover or Rolls-Royce key can bring this feeling.

Each time it is pressed, the buttons on the key will flash, informing the owner that “command received”. The layout also shows the meticulous ingenuity of the designer. The functions of locking, opening the trunk and unlocking are arranged vertically opposite the Bentley logo. If you look closely, the trunk opening function is symbolized by the image of the corresponding Bentley, here is the Bentayga.

The last thing, and the most noticeable point, is the Bentley logo on the back of the function keys, surrounded by a silver ring with the word Bentley above and below. The design is ostentatious but extremely consistent with the style of Bentley cars. Just hold out the key, even someone who doesn’t know about cars knows what car you own and what status you have, you are sure to get into any exclusive club.

To better visualize how charming the Bentley Bentayga key is, Kalmowitz said that in 5 days of “living” with the car, he lost the habit of using Keyless entry but only using the key, because I can’t resist the wonderful feeling when I hold it.
