Bentley Bentayga V8 To Debut At 2018 Beijing Auto Show

The new Bentley Bentayga V8 headlines for the luxury British brand at the 2018 Beijing Auto Show.

Sitting at the core of the Bentayga range, the new V8 model fuses exquisite luxury with power, usability and extensive sporting ability. Its responsive performance is fully customisable on demand by the driver through Bentley’s Drive Dynamics system, from limousine-like refinement to sporting precision.

At its heart is a 4.0-litre, twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine developing 542 bhp and 770 Nm of torque.

This powers the Bentayga V8, the most performance-orientated version to date, from 0-100 km/h in 4.5 seconds, and on to a top speed of 290 km/h. Such immense power doesn’t compromise efficiency either – the new-generation engine helps give the Bentayga V8 a range of 746 km, with CO2 emissions of 260 g/km.

The new model also benefits from a characteristic V8 burble, stylish twin-quad exhaust pipes and optional carbon-ceramic brakes. These features combine to reveal even more of the Bentayga V8’s sporting nature, with responsive performance fully customised by the driver through Bentley’s Drive Dynamics system.

Inside, the Bentayga V8 showcases the Bentley tradition of intricate detailing and fine, handcrafted precision using authentic materials. Among the three innovative, new interior options is a high-gloss carbon-fibre finish for the first time. A wood and hide trimmed steering wheel option is also a first.

A suite of state-of-the-art driver assistance systems and infotainment features designed to enhance safety, comfort and convenience make the Bentayga V8 an innovative, advanced and connected luxury SUV.

Bentayga V8 is also available with Bentley Dynamic Ride – the world’s first electric active roll control technology. The system instantly counteracts lateral rolling forces when cornering, ensuring maximum tyre contact. This delivers class-leading cabin stability, ride comfort and handling. Optional carbon-ceramic brakes are the world’s largest front brake system.
