The brand new Bentley Bentayga SUV is set to celebrate its world debut at the IAA Frankfurt Motor Show 2015. The car’s reveal will come about three and a half years after the original Bentley EXP 9 F concept debuted.
While recently spied prototypes haven’t revealed much about the car’s design, a number of teaser images and videos released have shown a selection of key external visual traits. For example, the front end will be characterised by traditional quad Bentley headlights alongside a prominent front grille. Additionally, flowing lines will be present across the entirety of the Bentley Bentayga with the rear-end pinned to incorporate a prominent tailgate-mounted spoiler as well as a dual exhaust system. Broadly speaking, the Bentayga will look dramatically different to the EXP 9 F.
Engine options remain far from confirmed but it is speculated that the firm’s customary 6.0-litre W12 will be available as well as the twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 alongside the diesel. That diesel is speculated to be the 4.2-litre V8 set to be available for the recently released 2015 Audi Q7. Additionally, a plug-in hybrid version will be available.
Not too long ago, it was confirmed that the bodies of the Bentley Bentayga will be built at the Volkswagen Group’s Bratislava plant in Slovakia. Final assembly will then be handled by the marque’s plant in Crewe, England.
