On the 14th of February this year, Bentley has released full specifications on what is to be the world’s fastest SUV on the road. The Bentayga Speed is to feature an enhanced 626 bhp version of the renowned 6.0-litre W12 engine that delivers a top speed of 306 km/h and 0–100 km/h in 3.9 seconds.

The Speed models started in 2007 with the Continental GT, with this new model to further innovate vehicle performance since claiming the production SUV record at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in 2018.
The Bentayga Speed’s exterior was designed to mirror its elevated performance. This model features dark-tint headlights, body-coloured side skirts and a tailgate spoiler that modestly flaunts the SUV’s performance credentials. It also comprises of dark-tint radiator and bumper grilles, a 22-inch wheel design with three finishing options and Speed signature badging add to the sporting design cues.

In it are specially designed ‘swooshes’ that represent a theme inside the vehicle, being visible on the door and door grab, the edge of the seat cushions and backrest bolsters, and on the lower console. Also in the interior is contrast stitching on the diamond quilting, discreet Speed badging, a Speed illuminated tread plate signature, and the use of Alcantara materials for the first time in a Bentayga.
The new model takes the Bentayga’s extraordinary abilities to new levels, boosting maximum power from 608 PS in the existing 6.0-litre W12 twin-turbocharged model to 626 bhp in the new Speed. Effortless acceleration is delivered thanks to 664 lb.ft of torque. The multi-award-winning Bentayga set the luxury SUV benchmark, offering customers the ultimate Grand Touring experience unrestricted by landscape or conditions. Sculpted with an elegant, timeless execution, the Bentayga’s style perfectly balances athleticism with confidence.
