Bentley announced the Bentley Bentayga Speed will be revealed on August 12. Ahead of the global debut, the British luxury carmaker shared images of the SUV. We can see the new Bentley Bentayga Speed in a camouflage in the photos released. The Speed in the name stands for increased performance.
The major difference is under the hood. While the facelift version is powered by a V8, the Bentayga Speed will have a W12 engine. The 6-liter twin-turbo W12 is capable of delivering 635 hp and 900 Nm of torque. With 626 bhp, the 6.0-litre W12 engine helps this one do a top speed of 306 kmph. Now, that’s more than the Lamborghini Urus which can do 305 kmph. But the Bentley Bentayga Speed is slower in acceleration than the Urus as far as 0 to 100 kmph is concerned. The Bentayga Speed can do the 0-100 kmph in 3.9 seconds, while the Urus does the same in just 3.6 seconds.
The updates in Bentley Bentayga Speed will include the elliptical headlights and a more upright grille. Bentley said every panel at the front and rear was new on the Bentayga, and we expect the Speed to be the same. We see elliptical taillights at the rear.The elliptical-shaped quad-exhaust tips that are different than those on the regular trim. However, it will feature unique front and rear diffusers, black wheels, and black trim.
The interior of the Bentley Bentayga Speed is unlikely to be different from the Bentayga facelift SUV. It is likely to get the same new centre fascia and steering wheel, new door trims and all-new seats – now available with ventilation in the rear of the five-seat cabin option. The next generation infotainment system with 10.9-inch display is also likely to make way into Bentayga Speed SUV. The all-new digital display includes super high-resolution and dynamic graphics which are configurable to suit driver preferences.
The luxurious interior can be further enhanced with the application of dark tint diamond brushed aluminium trim for the first time in a Bentley, as well as two straight-grained veneers new to Bentayga: Koa and Crown Cut Walnut. Mulliner Driving Specification adds a new quilting design, and micro piping detailing is a new option for the seats.
