The Bentley Bentayga already has a growing wait list as its first year of production is sold out.

The luxury SUV just made its first public debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show and Bentley is expected to produce 3,000 to 4,500 units per year. The company already has deposits paid for the first full year of production, meaning demand for the SUV is healthy despite its controversial styling.

Customers interested in ordering a Bentley Bentayga today will likely not see their vehicle until 2017.

When the Bentayga was introduced online, the British automaker boasted that it’s “the fastest, most powerful, most luxurious and most exclusive SUV in the world.” It’s also the most expensive SUV in the world with a starting price of $229,100.

But that’s not stopping luxury shoppers from lining up to get their hands on the first of what will likely be numerous ultra-luxury SUVs as Rolls-Royce and Lamborghini are also looking into joining the segment.

Powering the Bentayga is a healthy, all-new 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12 engine with 600 horsepower and 663 pound-feet of torque. As the world’s fastest SUV, it’ll have a top speed of 187 mph and will go 0-60 in four seconds flat. Even with all that power, Bentley expects the Bentayga to return 14 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway on the U.S. cycle.
