Despite weighing nearly 2.5 tonnes, the 608hp W12 engine in the Bentayga can take the car to 100kph in just 4.0sec! Bentley design head Stefan Sielaff said that the luxury carmaker is currently working on a faster version of the Bentayga SUV, which will be called the Speed.
It would be a “big change” in terms of design as compared to the standard car. Under the hood will be the current W12 engine re-tuned to make more power. There is no word yet on when the faster Bentayga will arrive in India, but Bentley recently launched the more frugal 549hp, 4.0-litre V8 version of the SUV in India at Rs 3.78 crore (ex-showroom, India).
The company also recently unveiled the Hybrid (which combines a 3.0-litre V6 engine with an electric motor) for international markets.
