In a world awash with utilities, the 2019 Bentley Bentayga V-8 is among the most exclusive. Even the ultra-rich it seem want SUVs.. so after the concept evolved…Bentley showed it at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show.  The following year the Bentayga went on sale and quickly became their best selling model, now making up about half of Bentley’s global sales.

Now there’s a sportier choice for under the hood…a new 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8… with a deep rumble that demands attention. Before W12 fans sniff in distain… the V8’s 542-horsepower has no problem moving this over 52-hundred pounds of pampering with grace and great force… matched with quick decisions by the ZF 8-speed automatic. A rear-biased all-wheel-drive system serves up bountiful traction as well. 

The Bentayga V-8 still uses Volkswagen’s MLB platform. But the silky smooth sailing is pure Bentley… with air suspension and continuous damping… for poise and, now with less weight, even more confidence in curves.

"Power, luxury and comfort are the immediate sensations when you slip behind the wheel. This turbo v8 pours on the power right from the start.  the suspension is firm enough to have a sporty nature… while soaking up the bumps along the way. And everything you see and feel is luxurious, with a clear sense of quality."

Inside, is Bentley’s renowned serene surroundings… cradling those lucky owners in luxurious leather and style that’s second to none. Behind all this poshness, is a suite of advanced safety features at the ready.
