From the outside, a gloss black matrix grille with chrome brightwork tells the onlooker that there’s a Bentley V8 under the bonnet, in contrast to the bright chrome grille of the W12 model. Another subtle visual difference is provided by the twin-quad black exhaust tailpipes. The new Bentayga V8 runs on 20” ten-spoke alloy wheels. Exterior options include brake callipers in Tornado Red and a wide choice of wheel designs.
For the interior, the Bentayga V8 can be specified in a choice of hide colours and colour splits, providing a near-limitless opportunity to create a truly individual interior. A new colour, Cricket Ball, joins the range for the first time and replaces Fireglow. A deep chestnut red, it complements a variety of interior finishes and should prove a popular choice.
Among the myriad options for the new Bentayga V8 are hand cross-stitching, which highlights the styling lines of the seats, doors and instrument panel and is available in a choice of 15 standard colours and four extreme shades. Another distinctive option is a high-gloss carbon fibre finish for the veneered panels, including fascia, waistrails and console. This option, which gives the interior great tactile and visual appeal, has previously only been available on the bespoke Mulsanne.
The specification of the 4.0-litre V8 engine has been specifically tailored to the Bentayga, and endows it with thrilling performance, refinement and tractability.
Fast-spooling twin-scroll turbochargers deliver efficiency and instant throttle response, while variable displacement allows the engine to switch seamlessly to 4-cylinder operation, helping to achieve class-leading CO2 emissions of 260 g/km and a single tank range of over 460 miles – a remarkable achievement for a powerful V8 SUV.
The Bentayga V8 has a Vmax of 180mph , delivering 0-60mph in 4.4 seconds. Peak torque of 770Nm is reached just below 2000rpm and continues through to 4500rpm, giving instant, exhilarating response at any speed and in any gear.
As impressive as the figures themselves are, it’s the way the new Bentayga V8 achieves them. The sound of a high-performance Bentley V8 has a visceral appeal and gives this Bentayga a character all its own, which will appeal to those who need the space and versatility of a luxury SUV yet also demand dynamic, rewarding performance.
The new Bentayga V8 shares the same high levels of off-road capability as its W12 and Diesel stablemates, with a maximum wading depth of 500mm. For those owners who live in the country, or enjoy outdoor pursuits, there’s also the option of an All-Terrain Specification, featuring Drive Dynamics Mode with responsive off-road settings, underfloor protection, driver feedback systems, top-view camera and luggage management.
On the road, the new Bentayga V8 is rewarding, responsive and agile. For those who regularly make full use of the Bentayga V8's ample performance, the option of carbon ceramic brakes will prove more than tempting. These massively powerful brakes with their 10-piston callipers offer a significant 21.5kg weight saving compared with the standard iron discs, and deliver powerful, fade-free braking performance with consistent, accurate pedal feel even under the most extreme use.
