Formidable power meets breathtaking design in the fastest SUV Bentley has ever made. This is the new Bentayga Speed. A commanding new aesthetic, enhanced by exclusive Speed detailing, hints at the exhilarating potential of the W12 engine within and the impressive driving experience that it offers. From its stunningly sculpted exterior to the handcrafted detailing of the cabin, this is a luxury SUV that doesn’t just stand out from the crowd – it leads it.
The new Bentayga Speed harnesses the power of a class-leading W12 engine to produce breathtaking speeds and formidable performance, without compromising on a truly luxurious driving experience.
Two twin-scroll turbochargers ensure that the potent W12 engine is always responsive and ready to provide power whenever you need it, whatever the speed or environment. This responsiveness translates into impressive levels of acceleration, with the new Bentayga Speed capable of 0 to 60 mph in an exhilarating 3.8 seconds (0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds) and onto an unrivalled top speed of 190 mph (306 km/h).
The thrilling performance of the W12 engine is enhanced further still by technologies that ensure peak performance can always be enjoyed, whatever you demand of the engine.
For the new Bentayga Speed, Sport driving mode has been reimagined to create an addictively dynamic driving experience at high speeds, optimising power, transmission and suspension in perfect harmony. This provides a new dimension in contrast to the three other driving modes, Comfort, Bentley and Custom. Meanwhile, start-stop and variable displacement technology ensure maximum engine efficiency by deactivating part of the engine should it not be required in the moment, resulting in a more than practical range of 400 miles or 644 km (NEDC).
The new Bentayga Speed comes with the innovative Bentley Dynamic Ride system, which enables you to make the most of the W12 engine’s phenomenal performance by ensuring supreme levels of comfort, control and confidence. The advanced active roll control system combines with the exhilarating Speed power to create an exceptional ride without compromise.
Electric motors placed on the front and rear axles provide instant, variable resistance as and when required, resulting in minimised body roll when travelling at speed around sweeping curves and bends. Maximum comfort is also ensured when driving along open straights by effectively de-coupling the wheels on each side of the axle to minimise torsional resistance.
With the optional Carbon Ceramic Brakes, you can add incredible stopping power to your new Bentayga Speed that’s reliable in even the most challenging conditions. At 440 mm in diameter, these are some of the world’s largest front brake discs and the most powerful brakes ever fitted to a Bentley.
As an SUV – albeit the most luxurious and refined version available – the new Bentayga Speed has to perform across a wide variety of different conditions. The All-Terrain Specification is the option that truly brings this to life: with one single customer option, a number of advanced but unobtrusive features and systems are added that work seamlessly together to enhance the off-road capability of the car. The overriding aim is to inspire absolute confidence and control on any terrain and in any situation, without the need for the driver to configure complex systems manually. So while the view outside may change, the experience of luxury and control is always constant.
The captivating exterior design sports body-coloured elements exclusive to the new Bentayga Speed, such as the boldly redesigned front and rear bumpers and side sill extensions. A prominent rear tailgate spoiler emphasises the car’s status as the most powerful new Bentayga. Dark tint headlamps and tail lamps, accompanied by a dark tint matrix grille and lower bumper grilles, add to the new Bentayga Speed’s formidable presence. Finally, a large, elliptical tailpipe design mirrors the shape of the new rear lamps to hint at this luxury SUV’s incredible performance credentials.
Inside the cabin, this unique approach to design translates to unrivalled luxury and comfort. An exclusive colour split option, available only on the new Bentayga Speed, incorporates tactile Alcantara elements and unique colour accents to create a truly distinctive look. This striking option also adds contrast stitching to the quilting, completing the backrest with the ultimate craftsmanship statement.
Meanwhile, beautiful handcrafted veneers, innovative technical finishes, natural leathers and your choice of stitching options combine to create an environment specially designed to immerse you in the journey ahead. Discover the range of personalisation options for your cabin here.
The new Bentayga Speed is outfitted with the Mulliner Driving Specification, which adds stunningly handcrafted diamond quilting to the cabin’s seats and door pads. This features a new ‘diamond in diamond’ pattern where each single stitching line is replaced by a twin-stitch – a complex technique that results in an aesthetic entirely unique to the new Bentayga Speed. Truly, luxury can be found in every detail.
The new Bentayga Speed comes equipped with a suite of the latest My Bentley Connected Car Services, specially designed to make each journey safe, smart and convenient. These can be accessed in-car and remotely via the My Bentley app – such as real-time traffic information, which provides you with the information you need to make the most of the journey ahead, and the remote car finder, which lets you find your car even in the largest of car parks.
The new Bentayga Speed includes the exceptional Bentley Signature Audio system, which delivers 590W through 12 speakers to completely immerse you in the soundtrack of your choosing – accessed via the infotainment system, which now features wireless Apple CarPlay* and Android Auto.
The Naim for Bentley sound system takes the art of music to the next level with the most powerful audio system available in any SUV. This class-leading option channels 1780W of power through 20 speakers and eight incredible modes and is specially designed for the most dedicated of audiophiles.
The new Bentayga Speed includes the exclusive Colour Specification, which extends the numbers of hide colours available to you from five to 15. This wealth of hide choice, when combined with the similarly expanded range of exterior paint options – with 17 out of the total 63 paint colours coming as standard with the Speed – means you can truly express yourself precisely as you desire. This extensive range of paints now includes the new and luxurious mid-tone beige Patina for the very first time.
You can also have your pick from a selection of eight luxurious veneers, from Crown Cut Walnut, Piano Black, Dark Fiddleback Eucalyptus and Dark Stained Burr Walnut as standard, or the optional Koa, Burr Walnut, Tamo Ash and Liquid Amber.
The stunning Blackline Specification adds dramatic flair to the sculpted design of the new Bentayga Speed, replacing the bright chrome exterior with ‘blackware’ and creating an intense and powerful aesthetic. The Black Specification takes this style to new heights by adding carbon fibre elements, black 22” 5-spoke Speed Wheels and black exhaust tailpipes to this breathtaking look.
