Bentley has launched what it claims is the world’s fastest SUV: the 2019 Bentley Bentayga Speed. Featuring an up-rated twin-turbocharged 6.0-litre W12 engine, the Bentayga Speed is due in Australia in October, priced from $481,400 plus on-road costs.
Capable of a 0-100km/h sprint in just 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 306km/h, the centerpiece of the Bentayga Speed is a 467kW/900Nm 6.0-litre twin-turbocharged W12 engine, which is 20kW more than the standard Bentayga offers.
Completing the Speed transformation are a number of other features, including firmer suspension, an electronic differential lock, darker head- and tail-lights, a darker grille, a rear spoiler and 22-inch alloy wheels.
Bentley claims the Bentayga Speed is the world’s fastest SUV.
The Bentayga Speed’s sport mode has been recalibrated to enhance the response from the W12 engine, and the eight-speed automatic transmission, as well as the suspension and damping. Bentley says this has only enhanced the Bentayga’s driving dynamics, and has made it sportier than before.
On the inside of the Bentayga Speed, contrasting stitching features, as well as the first use of Alcantara trim in a Bentley, Speed logo embroidery and badging, as well as new colour sections on the door panels and seat edges.
