Bentley has revealed its third generation of the Bentayga, which offers customers an ultimate Grand Touring experience unrestricted by landscape or conditions – the V8.

This luxury SUV is powered by a new generation 4.0 liter, twin-turbocharged V8 engine that combines immense power with impressive fuel efficiency. 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. Its responsive performance is fully customizable on demand by the driver through Bentley’s drive dynamics system, from limousine-like refinement to sporting precision.

Outside, the Bentayga V8 has the family’s sporting position. It has a unique muscular, sculptural lines, balancing athleticism with an unmistakable presence on the road. From the four round LED headlamps to the large matrix grille, the Bentayga V8 exudes the Bentley design DNA, while the overt powerline, large rear haunches and raised ride height reflect the rugged off-road ability of the luxury SUV.

The brake discs measure 440 mm in diameter at the front and 370 mm at the rear, and sit inside enormous Bentley-branded calipers, with 10 pistons at the front. Together these provide a maximum braking torque of 6,000 Nm.

Also introduced on the Bentayga V8 are sporting red brake calipers for the front and rear standard iron brakes. The calipers are painted in special, high-temperature resistant Tornado red paint, signalling strongly the dynamic intent of this performance-oriented Bentayga V8.

Inside, the Bentayga V8 continues the Bentley tradition of intricate detailing and fine, handcrafted precision using authentic materials. Its hand cross-stitch design highlights the interior styling line of the seats and door panels.

For the first time in a Bentley, the Bentayga V8 has a high-gloss carbon-fiber finish, which is good for individuals who seek a contemporary and technical feel. It also has a new three-spoke wood and hide trimmed steering wheel, which has a solid wood base, thus, maintaining the integrity and authenticity of interior features offered by Bentley.
