Unique edition of Bentley Bentayga with V8, contemporary style and dynamic character.
Bentley introduced the new Bentayga V8 Design Series – a contemporary styled and dynamic version of the luxurious SUV, the new model offers a distinctive presence. The Design Series blends Mulliner exterior and interior features, together with a range of existing Bentayga options, to create a unique composition. Handcrafted in England, the special edition is based on the dynamic and agile Bentley Bentayga V8. It joins a line-up consisting of the Bentayga Speed and the Bentayga Hybrid. The Design Series enhances the Bentayga’s elegantly sculpted and athletic stance, reflecting supreme levels of luxury and performance. Key new Mulliner features include Palladium Grey Paragon alloy wheels and Self Levelling Wheel Badges. Inside the color-themed cabin, an all-new carbon fiber weave and Duotone color palette are available for the first time, as well as an accent design line color split with Beluga main hide seats and a stylish Breitling clock with mother of pearl face.
The Bentayga athletic look has been amplified to become a dynamic and contemporary design statement. Bentayga Blackline spec is included as standard, with imposing features such as a body-colored lower front bumper apron and twin gloss black tailpipes, to showcase the V8’s distinctive burble. Discreet Design Series badge on front doors identifies this Bentayga’s special edition. New Mulliner Paragon wheels are presented in a seven-spoke design, finished in a dark metallic Palladium Grey. The Design Series also sees the introduction of the Self Levelling Wheel Badge. The ‘B’ badge centres maintain a vertical orientation as the wheels rotate, thanks to a sophisticated weighting mechanism.
The Bentayga V8 Design Series brings an all-new interior design finish to the cabin. The Duotone interior offers four unique themes – Pillar Box Red, Orange, Mulliner White and Klein Blue. A new contrast accent design line is introduced to the Bentayga for the first time on the Design Series, with a vivid, high contrast colour in the cabin, focussed around the console and dashboard. Uniquely, the Design Series is presented with Duotone seat centre perforations across the front and rear. The all-new carbon fibre present on the dashboard and doors has been created especially for the Design Series. It features a diamond quilted pattern with a high gloss finish. A Piano Black finish has been adopted on the console to complete the dark interior and distinctive design theme.
Minimalist Duotone embroidery mirrors the exterior Design Series badge and is adopted on seatbacks throughout the cabin. Deep pile floor mats with contrast binding adds the finishing touch. Central to the dashboard is an elegant diamond jeweled Breitling clock, with light pearl face. Passengers are welcomed into an exquisitely created cabin by ‘Bentley’ illuminated treadplates, while a Front Seat Comfort specification and drilled alloy sports pedals and footrest are also standard.
The driving ability and luxury are the hallmarks of every Bentley Bentayga – the original, most luxurious SUV in the world. Powerful, individual and exquisite in equal measure, the Bentayga is for those who want luxury without any compromise. The Bentayga V8 Design Series brings together luxury with power, usability, and sporting ability. With its new-generation 4.0-liter petrol engine, 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 V8’s engine develops 542 bhp (550 PS) and 568 lb.ft. (770 Nm) of torque, delivering a top speed of 180 mph (290 km/h) and 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds (100 km/h in 4.5 seconds). As with all Bentaygas, the all-wheel-drive Design Series is equipped with Electronic Differential Lock and four Drive Dynamic modes to make off-road ability even more impressive. Sport mode provides a more dynamic, while a greater exhaust character, as well as a firmer suspension tune, increasing driver engagement.
