The first Bentley SUV, Bentayga, was launched in 2015. The Bentayga was named after the Roque Bentayga, on the island of Gran Canaria, Spain. This remarkable SUV was designed, engineered, and crafted to be the world’s first true luxury SUV, redefining the SUV category and offering unprecedented levels of performance. Bentayga was created after years of research, consultation with Bentley owners, and even public consultation via social media.
After launching the first Bentayga with the W12 engine, Bentley has gone on to create further Bentaygas to suit the needs of contemporary drivers—the agile Bentayga V8, and more recently, the Bentayga Speed, launched as the world’s fastest SUV.
With the Bentayga range, Bentley continues to innovate and explore the possibilities which arise where ultimate luxury meets thrilling performance.
PERFORMANCE AND PRECISION: BENTLEY BENTAYGA V8
Since its introduction, the Bentley Bentayga has defined a new sector and set the luxury SUV benchmark, offering customers the ultimate Grand Touring experience unrestricted by landscape or conditions. The award-winning Bentley model is now available in its most sporting guise to date – the Bentayga V8.
At the heart of the new Bentayga V8 sits an all-new 4.0-liter 32-valve V8 featuring dual twin-scroll turbochargers located inside the ‘V’ of the engine. The dynamic unit develops 542hp and 770Nm of torque, resulting in a top speed of 290 km/h and 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds.
The addition of a characteristic V8 burble, stylish twin-quad exhaust pipes and optional carbon-ceramic brakes, reveals more of the luxury SUV’s sporting character.
Sitting at the core of the Bentayga range, the new V8 model fuses exquisite luxury with power, usability and extensive sporting ability. Inside, customers will recognize Bentley’s unique approach to modern luxury tailoring, with the familiar blend of exquisite handcrafted materials and advanced technologies. New styling features include a wood-and-hide steering wheel and the introduction of a high-gloss carbon-fiber interior panel finish.
WORLD’S FASTEST AND MOST LUXURIOUS SUV: THE BENTLEY BENTAYGA SPEED
The Bentayga Speed features an enhanced 626hp version of the renowned 6.0-litre W12 engine that delivers a top speed of 306 km/h and 0–100 km/h in 3.9 seconds. The Bentayga Speed is the most powerful and performance-oriented Bentayga to date. It builds on a long tradition of Speed models that was born with the Continental GT in 2007 and pushes the boundaries of Bentayga performance further since claiming the production SUV record at the gruelling Pikes Peak International Hill Climb last year.
To match the elevated levels of performance, the Bentayga Speed sports a purposeful exterior look. Dark-tint headlights, body-colored side skirts and a striking tailgate spoiler hint at the SUV’s performance credentials. Dark-tint radiator and bumper grilles, a unique 22-inch wheel design available in three finishes and Speed signature badging add to the sporting design cues.
Inside, the Bentayga Speed introduces a dramatic design theme. This includes elegantly crafted ‘swooshes’ around the door and door grab, on the edge of the seat cushions and backrest bolsters, and on the lower console; a new contrast stitching on the diamond quilting; discreet Speed badging; a Speed illuminated treadplate signature; and the use of Alcantara materials for the first time in a Bentayga.
