This is the new Bentley Bentayga S: a dynamic and visually striking expression of Bentayga. The more time you spend in the presence of this unique vehicle, the harder it becomes to describe. Because it performs with the power of a sports car and, when driven in Enhanced Sports Mode, an agility that appears to defy physics.
In short, Bentayga S is stunning. Crafted to turn heads and make hair stand on end, it is designed to delight every sense – and the roar it emits as its engine awakens is virtually impossible to resist. Created for those with an insatiable desire for whatever comes next, the new Bentayga S is much more than just a powerful car. It is a statement about you and the way you want your world to be.
Designed to deliver a sensory experience for drivers and passengers alike, the Bentley Bentayga S takes exhilaration to new heights. From the unmistakable sound of its V8 engine to the rush you feel as its power pushes you back into your seat, you can expect an unforgettable drive.
First though, the facts: beneath the bonnet lies a twin-turbocharged V8 engine that can deliver 550PS and 770Nm of torque. That’s enough to propel you from zero to 60mph in just 4.4 seconds (0-100km/h in 4.5 seconds). Among the Drive Dynamics modes available is a new Enhanced Sports Mode, which adds an even more thrilling dimension. While every Bentley has a Sports Mode, this one pushes the driving character of the car even further. The moment it is activated, significant adjustments are made to the suspension, the steering and the throttle, all at once. The result is more responsive acceleration, tighter suspension and a thrilling sensation of being closer to the road. Even the character of the exhaust note is primed to get the adrenaline pumping, thanks to a new Sports Exhaust. The muffler and tailpipes have been carefully redesigned to deliver a louder, richer and more powerful V8 sound – a rumble building to a roar that can make the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end.
Bentley Dynamic Ride comes as standard. An active anti-roll system, it gives the vehicle the agility of a sports car and the comfort of a luxury grand tourer during more relaxed driving. This is made possible by an electric motor attached to the anti-roll bar, as an alternative to the rigid anti-roll bars commonly fitted on sports cars. It literally tightens its grip on the axle when the car is cornering, for a greater sense of control and a more thrilling drive. But in everyday driving situations, it relaxes; the suspension becomes more supple for a more comfortable experience inside. The result is the best of both worlds – an unrivalled luxury SUV and a performance car that can quicken the pulse of anyone who takes the wheel.
Bentayga S was created for those who see their car as a personal statement; true individuals who refuse to stand still. So Bentley’s designers have pushed its styling into an arresting new world, with a unique, high-contrast aesthetic.
In essence, this car is a stunning showcase of luxury design. Yet the sleek lines established across the Bentayga range have been enhanced with a collection of eye-catching exterior features, designed to entice you inside.
Styled to appeal to the heart as well as the head, the car’s shape gains extra definition from the contrasting black details that adorn its exterior. With Bentley’s Blackline Specification as standard, Bentayga S reflects an uncompromising attitude, thanks to a black matrix grille and black wing vents, roof rails, door trim, window surrounds and lamp bezels. Even the trim on the door handles is black.
Front and rear bumpers share their design with Bentayga Speed (however the detailing here is black rather than body-coloured). Black door mirrors, black-painted side sills and a body-coloured spoiler with a black trailing edge complete the uncompromising exterior. If you’re looking for a car to be seen in, suffice to say this is it.
At the front and the rear, dark tint lamps add yet more drama, while a dramatic new 22” wheel designed especially for the Bentayga S can be commissioned in a choice of three finishes. Created to further boost road presence, it features five, angular, scythe-like spokes that point in the same direction, whichever side the vehicle is viewed from.
The first thing you’ll notice as you step inside is the ‘Bentayga’ S illuminated treadplates. A new colour split marks out the car’s unique character, while sleek fluted leather brings a contemporary feel to the cabin. ‘Bentayga S’ embroidery can be seen on the seats, while racetrack-inspired Alcantara detailing is used throughout the cabin.
With the optional Mulliner Driving Specification, you can add even more sports-focused detailing, such as diamond quilting instead of the fluted design applied as standard, alongside sports alloy foot pedals and jewelled fuel and oil filler caps.
Regardless of the choices you make when you specify your Bentyaga S, you’ll see stunning examples of Bentley craftsmanship wherever you look. Because this is a car in which you can make your mark on the world – and express your personal taste in every detail. To start your journey today, explore the options available on the Bentley configurator.
The Bentley Bentayga is designed to move with the times – and the new Bentayga S moves faster than most. Central to the experience of travelling in this car is a characteristic unique to Bentley: the ability to fuse modern digital technology with the kind of craftsmanship that cannot be achieved in a mass-produced car.
There’s only one way to truly appreciate it: to sit inside and switch the engine on. Instruments awaken and mood lighting spreads around the car as you prepare to move off. In the digital Driver’s Information Panel behind the steering wheel, exquisitely styled dials take centre stage. Stylish new graphics evoke the car’s sporting DNA, offering a glimpse at the exhilaration to come when you hit the open road.
While the new Bentley Rear Entertainment system, with two high-definition 10.1” screens, offers rear passengers even greater levels of entertainment and immersion. You can now access and enjoy content from a wide range of your subscriptions, streamed directly from your personal mobile device.
And that’s just the beginning. Because Bentayga S includes a stunning array of technology, representing the very best available in any Bentayga. Including the Connected Car services available via the My Bentley smartphone app, each one adds to the experience of traveling in this truly remarkable SUV.
