As the name implies, the Design Series is all about the new (although minor) design elements as well as the interior materials. Each Design Series model is based on the Bentayga V8 with the Blackline trim. That means it is powered by a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 that makes 550 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque. It has no changes to the...

  • 2019 Bentley Bentayga V8

    As much as we love a good V-12, it's often the case that a V-8 will suffice. That's certainly true with Bentley's Continental GT where the lighter weight of the V-8 over the car's 12-cylinder option (in this case a W-12) makes the handling sharper and more agile. And we bet the same will be true in the case of the Bentayga which has just spawned a V-8 option of its own. Revealed on Friday ahead of a likely debut at next week's 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, the Bentayga V8 sports a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 delivering 550 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque...
