A Fusion of Luxury And Power: The Bentley Bentayga V8

The latest in Bentley brilliance is a new generation of Bentayga featuring a 4.0 liter, twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine. The SUV’s sporting character comes to life with the addition of a V8 burble (murmur), stylish twin-quad exhaust pipes, and optional carbon-ceramic brakes. Its responsive performance is fully customizable on demand by the driver through Bentley’s Drive Dynamics system, from limousine-like refinement to sporting precision.

The interior resembles Bentley’s distinct approach to modern luxury tailoring, featuring an elegant blend of handcrafted materials and advanced technologies. Wood and hide steering wheel options paired with a high-gloss carbon-fiber interior panel finish take the stylish Bentley Bentayga to opulent levels. 

Immense Performance, Impressive Efficiency

At the heart of the new Bentayga V8 sits an all-new 4.0-liter, 32-valve, V8 engine featuring dual twin-scroll turbochargers located inside the ‘V’ of the engine. The dynamic unit results in a top speed of 180 mph,  0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds, and has an impressive range of 464 miles at a 24.8 combined mpg.

This refined efficiency results, in part, due to the ability of the engine to deactivate four of its eight cylinders in certain conditions without compromising the drive and adaptive Stop-Start technology.
