A couple of videos of the brand new Bentley Bentayga have just been released following on from the vehicle’s online debut yesterday. Led by the car’s official launch film, the clips showcase the world’s fastest and arguably most luxurious SUV on some breathtaking forest roads looking every bit worthy of the Bentley badge.
From a visual standpoint, the Bentayga is clearly distinguishable from the original concept from the British marque. The front is traditional Bentley with a large and wide chrome front grille as well as headlight units very similar to those from the Continental GT. Flowing and aggressive lines characterise the sides with edgy rear wheel arches stretching back to the rectangular taillights. Also found at the rear is a subtle bootlid lip spoiler as well as a roof spoiler adding to the sporty persona of the Bentayga SUV.
Powering the Bentley Bentayga is the Volkswagen Group’s brand new twin-turbocharged 6.0-litre W12 engine delivering 600 hp and 663 lb-ft of torque. This makes for a sprint to 96 km/h in just 4 seconds as well as a top speed of 301 km/h, making it quite comfortably the world’s fastest SUV.
Alongside being very capable in a straight line, the Bentayga provides eight different driving modes with a dedicated Responside Off-Road setting. Air springs which are computer controlled are then found at all four corners offering a number of different ride height configrations. Adaptive Cruise Control is also featured alongside a Stop & Go system as well as Traffic and Park Assist programs.
