BENTAYGA SPEED – Limited Availability
Our most performance-focused Bentayga offers customers a truly exhilarating experience across every landscape, achieved by a seamless combination of class-leading power, technology and refinement.
A CLASS–LEADING W12 ENGINE
Using the W12 engine designed for Bentayga, the power has increased from 608 PS to 635 PS. This produces a maximum speed of 306 kph and a 0-100kph time of just 3.9 seconds. Torque remains at the awesome level of 900Nm – available over a greater range of engine speed than the launch W12 model.
Advanced technologies include twin-scroll turbochargers and variable displacement. These, plus the combination of Direct and Port injection results in impressive fuel efficiency.
SPORT MODE CHANGES
Bentayga Speed has undergone software changes in Sport mode to provide more differentiation between Comfort and Sport modes than previously experienced on Bentayga W12. As well as offering the driver a more dynamic and engaging drive, it also contributes to Bentayga Speed’s purposeful character and attitude.
CARBON CERAMIC BRAKES
Available as an option on Bentayga Speed, these are the most powerful brakes ever fitted to a Bentley. At 370 mm in diameter at the rear, and 440 mm at the front, they are the world’s largest front brake system and deliver incredible stopping power. New disc shields optimize cooling airflow, while reduced brake judder and thermal fade ensure complete reliability in even the most extreme weather conditions.
BENTAYGA HYBRID –
The new Bentayga Hybrid, launched at the Geneva Salon de l’Auto 2018, brings the luxury, performance and capability of Bentayga to a discerning new audience that’s alive to future-focused technology.
Beneath the skin of the Bentayga Hybrid, there are sophisticated and advanced new technologies, from the 348V twin-string battery to the cleverly-integrated e-motor. Yet the design language conveys that this is still a Bentayga, with all the luxury and performance that is expected. Hybrid design signifiers are subtle but will be picked up by a discerning and informed audience.
The Bentayga Hybrid has discreet ‘Hybrid’ badging on the leading edge of the driver and front passenger doors as well as on the tailgate. The grille is chrome, a 21” painted alloy wheel design comes as standard and twin-quad tailpipes denote the V6 petrol engine that makes up one part of the powertrain partnership. The only other exterior hint of the hybrid powertrain is the additional ‘filler’ flap cover – not for a petrol tank but for the vehicle charge point on the rear left-hand side of the vehicle. There are seven popular exterior colours to choose from as standard, though a full selection of options for customers to explore in both interior and exterior finishes.
Inside, there’s a standard selection of five interior hide and carpet colours, which includes the recently launched Cricket Ball. A deep chestnut red, it complements a variety of interior finishes and should prove a popular choice.
The door sills have the ‘Hybrid’ logotype in place of the normal Bentley logo and Dark Fiddleback Eucalyptus is the standard specification veneer, though again, a wider range of choices are optionally available.
As the name implies, the Bentayga Hybrid has two power sources – a turbocharged V6 engine and an integrated e-motor. The integral 348V high-voltage battery can be both charged by the engine and by electricity network charging, making it a Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle, or PHEV. This combination of electric motor and petrol engine, as well as the plug-in charging feature, gives the Bentayga Hybrid an exceptional breadth of abilities, which will appeal to a future-ready, tech-savvy discerning audience.
Combined, the V6 and e-motor produce instant, effortless acceleration that is a hallmark of every Bentley. As the electric motor makes its full torque from zero rpm, throttle response is eager and instantaneous.
The Bentayga Hybrid is also capable of operating in EV Drive mode, using only electric power. The electric motor delivers swift and silent acceleration. The maximum range is 16 miles in EV mode (25km) making it an appealing proposition for urban owners; a typical urban daily commute can be accomplished on electric power alone, recharging at night or at the office and enabling the Bentayga Hybrid to be driven in zero-emission inner-city zones.
The Bentayga Hybrid’s V6 engine is a high-output V6 with a single twin-scroll turbocharger located in the V for maximum efficiency. It generates huge reserves of power and typical Bentley levels of torque, boosted by the compact, advanced Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor that is integrated between the engine and transmission. Power for the e-motor comes from an advanced 348V, 13kW twin-string battery designed to deliver consistent power for the longest possible time. This can be charged in as little as 2.5 hours.
As there may be times when the Bentayga Hybrid is used in EV Drive mode from the journey’s beginning until the end, other unique components include a high voltage heater and air conditioning compressor, so that HVAC systems are not dependent on being powered by an engine-driven drive belt. The Bentayga Hybrid can thus be pre-heated or cooled, either on a timer when it’s plugged in to a charging station or via a command on the MyBentley app.
An I-Booster blends the braking torque from the E-Motor with the hydraulic braking system, so the driver will be unaware of when the braking effort is being recycled into charging the system. An intelligent accelerator pedal includes a synthesised pressure point so that the driver can easily sense the boundary between electric-only power and the smooth intervention of the V6 petrol engine.
The technology may be advanced, but the design and engineering of the Bentayga Hybrid has been developed to give the driver the typical driving characteristics of a Bentayga, without compromise. Thus the drive mode selector offers the same choice of Sport, Bentley, Comfort and Custom drive modes as can be found on other Bentayga models, but with the addition of a scrollable E-Mode option.
In EV Drive mode the Bentayga Hybrid will travel under electric power up to the point where battery charge reaches a pre-set level, at which point the petrol engine will intervene – ideal for city or urban driving. Hybrid mode makes intelligent choices between one or both power sources, to maximise vehicle efficiency and range. The third mode, Hold mode, conserves electric energy so that the combined power of e-Motor and V6 engine is always available.
Visually, the driver of a Bentayga Hybrid will have a unique tachometer to keep them informed, with a green EV Drive Mode band prior to the 0rpm point for the petrol engine. There is also a battery state of charge dial at the 6 o’clock position on the rev counter. The main infotainment screen can also display real-time energy flow, journey stats include time in EV Drive mode and park climate control settings.
Charging the Bentayga is a simple and straightforward process with an external flap on the rear haunch of the vehicle opening to reveal the charging port. Charging takes 2.5 hours on a 32A supply or 7.5 hours on a domestic 16A supply.
The new Bentayga Diesel is the first diesel in the marque’s history. The world’s most refined 8-cylinder diesel engine, it has been developed to deliver world-class Bentley performance with the extended range of a diesel engine. Bentayga Diesel is an SUV for every kind of journey – whether it’s just around the corner or heading to the farthest corners of the earth. It combines practicality, power and luxury with innovative technology.
It offers the kind of power never before seen in a car of this class – the highest output of any diesel SUV at 429 bhp (435 PS). This engine delivers class-leading drivability and refinement. It will come as no surprise that it feels and responds in a familiar way – like a typical Bentley engine.
Bentayga’s V8 diesel engine has adopted much of the same technology that makes its sibling, the W12, the most technically advanced engine in the world. The combination of high power and torque also gives total confidence when towing, under any circumstances, with Bentayga Diesel able to produce an impressive 900 Nm of torque.
