A High-Performance Bentley Bentayga Speed Is Definitely Happening


And it won't be limited to just a power boost.

It’s been nearly three years since the Bentley Bentayga had its official debut. Since then, V8 gasoline and diesel versions have been launched and more recently, a plug-in hybrid with about 31 miles of all-electric range has gone on sale. But what about a high-performance ‘Speed’ version? ? If so, when? recently spoke with Bentley design chief Stefan Sielaff who confirmed the UK automaker is currently working on it.

Although Sielaff did not reveal any sort of launch date or related timeline, he did say we can expect a “big change” in design over the current Bentayga. Expect to see the “typical” styling changes Bentley applies when doing Speed versions for other models. Those typically include a lowered ride height, some front and rear styling tweaks, and some interior upgrades. We’ll just have to wait and see how far Sielaff and his team go with the changes, but don’t mistake the Bentayga Speed with the also . And because raw speed and performance are the name of the game here, especially since the Lamborghini Urus’ arrival, the Bentayga Speed will be even more powerful.

It’d be fair to assume the 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12 will be the chosen engine, currently rated at 600 hp and 663 lb-ft of torque. According to the report, those figures are expected to increase as well. It’s possible we’ll see the Bentayga Speed next March at Geneva, but we doubt it’ll be any time before then.
