Designed, engineered and handcrafted in Great Britain, with a top speed of 190 mph the Bentayga Speed is Bentley Motor’s most powerful and performance-oriented Bentayga. It builds on a long tradition of Speed models that were born with the Continental GT in 2007 and pushes the boundaries of Bentayga performance further since claiming the production SUV record at the grueling Pikes Peak International Hill Climb last year.
Bentayga Speed – The Pinnacle of SUV Luxury and Performance
The new model takes the Bentayga’s extraordinary abilities to new levels, boosting maximum power in the existing 6.0-litre W12 twin-turbocharged engine. With exceptional performance, comfort and handling, maximum speed is also increased from 187 mph to 190 mph in the new Speed, while the 0-62 mph acceleration time is reduced from 4.1 seconds to 3.9 seconds.The performance pinnacle of the Bentayga range, Speed is equipped with four on-road Drive Dynamics modes: Comfort at one extreme, and Bentley and Sport at the other, with Custom for customers who opt to create their own driving set-up.
Uniquely in the Speed, the Sport mode has been recalibrated to enhance response from the W12 engine and the eight-speed automatic transmission, as well as the suspension and Bentley Dynamic Ride. The effect is a more dynamic and engaging drive. Bentley Dynamic Ride is the world’s first electric active roll control technology that utilizes an unrivalled 48V system. This system instantly counteracts lateral rolling forces when cornering and ensures maximum tire contact to deliver class-leading cabin stability, ride comfort and exceptional handling.
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.
A greater exhaust character during start up and gear downshifts combines with a firmer suspension set-up to further enhance the driver experience. The Bentayga’s permanent all-wheel drive offers class-leading handling and go-anywhere ability, while powerful ceramic brakes are also an option. The Bentayga Speed’s ceramic brakes are the largest and most powerful ever fitted to a Bentley.
A Truly Luxurious and Unique Cabin
Inside, the Bentayga Speed introduces a dramatic design theme. The styling lines are highlighted by elegantly crafted ‘swooshes’ around the door and door grab, on the edge of the seat cushions and backrest bolsters, and on the lower console. Contrast stitching is available on all Bentaygas. In the Speed, this is extended to include the diamond quilting on the cushion bolsters, at the top of the backrest, on the door pads and on the backboard of any Speed specified with four seats instead of five.
While Bentayga customers have the option of the Bentley wings embroidered at the top of the seat backrests, on the new Speed models these have been replaced with the word ‘Speed’, in either blind or contrast stitching. A metal Speed badge adorns the passenger side fascia, while an illuminated Speed treadplate welcomes passengers into the truly luxurious cabin.
