  • Bentley Bentayga by Bengala

    Perhaps you've never heard of Bengala. If not, consider the Bentley Bentayga Bengala an introduction. The posh luxury SUV has undergone a makeover with the Spanish design firm, and it looks ready for just about anything thrown at it. Bengala says on its website that it partnered with a former Spanish off-road champion and his team to engineer and design the Bentayga Bengala. That much shows through—clearly. Outside, the rough-and-tough SUV gains a massive bumper bar to protect the fascia, LED light bars in the grille and atop the roof, and two horizontal bars at the front and rear for...

    Bentley debuted the Bentayga Hybrid at the 2018 Geneva motor show promising a more fuel-efficient but equally luxurious experience.

  • 2019 Bentley Bentayga V8

    Burnt coffee, unlined trousers, post-Achtung Baby U2. Life is rife with mild disappointments. With four fewer cylinders under its hood than its W-12 cousin, does the V-8 Bentley Bentayga deliver another? Math with us here for a moment. A W-12 Bentayga with 600 horsepower lashes out at 60-mph runs in 4.0 seconds, hardly restrained by its 5,379-pound curb weight. A 542-hp Bentayga V8, a hundred-odd pounds trimmed from the weight over its nose at 5,264 pounds, covers the 60-mph dash in 4.4 seconds.

    Bentley Bentayga V8 arrives with 550 horsepower

    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...

  • Bentley Bentayga Le Mans Editions by Kahns Design

    Kahn Design is known for taking exotic sports and luxury vehicles and transforming them into aggressively styled bespoke builds. The latest machine to capture the British outfit's attention is the Bentley Bentayga. If you polled the average enthusiast on how they felt about the styling of the stock Bentayga, you'd likely get a split decision. The same can't be said about the Kahn Design version which does away with the flashy chrome and leaves us with a classy, restrained look. Kahn calls its special Bentayga the Le Mans Edition, which seems an odd moniker for a luxury-loaded SUV. Still...
