    Bentley Plans A Even Faster Bentayga

      More speed? More speed.

    Bentley tends to build even faster versions of their models which are denoted by the Speed nameplate. The Bentayga SUV is no exception to this.

    Bentley design boss Stefan Sielaff confirmed to Autocar this week that the luxury automaker is working on a Bentayga Speed. The model will get “typical” styling changes Bentley makes when creating Speed versions - revised front end, wider fenders, rear diffuser, and wheels. Autocar reports that more power is expected for the W12 engine. The current engine produces 600 horsepower, so 650 to 700 horsepower isn't out of the question.

    No time frame was given as to when the Bentayga Speed would appear. We're guessing 2020 at the earliest.

    If Bugatti can get 1479hp & 1180 lb-ft of torque out of the W16 version of the motor, which equals 92.43HP per cylinder and 73.75 lb-ft of torque per cylinder, then why not make the Speed which has a W12 have 1,109.25 HP and 885 lb-ft of torque. This would be a worthy Speed engine! :P

    Speaking of Bugatti, I wonder when they will get a mega expensive W16 SUV...they have the Urus as the 'supercar' SUV, the Bentyaga as the superluxury SUV, so they need a Bugatti 'hypercar' SUV..

    If they did that it would be superior to anything Mercedes-benz has and SMK would be having fits. ;)

    Bugatti should build a 250 mph SUV for sure.   Mercedes will let them have that one, they have a real race car team to do their performance bragging and a whole line of cars to worry about.  

    A Bentley Bentayga Speed makes sense, because someone will pay for it, so one billionaire can brag to the other billionaire that their Bentayga is a the sports model.   I think Bentley could do a Mulsanne based SUV for $400k also.  Then you really go after the elites, because someone out there wants to look down upon lowly Bentayga drivers.  

    Plus, Mercedes did trademark GLS73, so an 800 hp GLS could be on the way, Bentley has to do something.

    Not all of the 1% want to brag about how much net worth they have with a half-million dollar SUV.  Many millionaires drive more common cars than you might think.  Only those who don't know better will spend way too much on this vehicle.
