Last month, Bentley announced the name of their upcoming SUV- Bentayga. Bentley has been already teasing the SUV for quite a time now. Here on this page, we have a spy image of the Bentayga from South Africa.
Previewed by the EXP 9 F concept, Bentley says that the model will be the “most luxurious and powerful SUV on the market” and when configured with the W12 engine it will be the “fastest SUV on sale.” It will be followed in 2017 by a plug-in hybrid version which they expect to be the best-selling version as almost 30 percent of potential buyers have expressed their desire to go for the hybrid.
The first SUV from the Crewe based car maker will ride on the MLB Evo platform. Apart from the massive 6.0-liter W12 and plug-in hybrid setup (offering 30 miles electric range), Bentley will also likely offer it with a twin-turbo V8 4.0-liter. Also available will be a 4.2-liter V8 TDI sourced from Audi.
Bentley boss Wolfgang Dürheimer has already stated that it will be more expensive than current high-end SUVs and will carry an estimated starting price of around £130,000 when it goes on sale next year. Stay tuned to Motoroids for more dope on the Bentayga SUV.
