The Bentley Bentayga V8 is Worth its Weight in Gold

By in Cars on

If someone were to say that they can’t understand why anyone would spend so much on a car, it’s safe to say they’ve never been in a Bentley Bentayga V8. Aside from the SUV’s sleek and elegant lines, or the handcrafted leather, the Eliade trimmings, or the Dark Fiddleback Eucalyptis veneer, the Bentayga V8 is a high-performance vehicle.

Capable of on- and off-road performance, the Bentayga’s V8 engine has a throaty and recognizable growl that doesn’t do much to hide the engine’s power. The V8 can hit a top speed of 180 miles, accelerating from 0 to 60 in just 4.4 seconds, thanks to its 542 bhp. Torque tops out at 770 Nm at 1,960 rpm. It’s just as efficient as it is powerful. With two twin-scroll turbochargers, four of the eight cylinders can be seamlessly shut down when not required, raising its fuel efficiency while dropping its carbon-dioxide emmisions to just 260 g/km with a range of 746km.

The Bentayga is a technological beast as well. As standard, the SUV comes with driver assistance technologies like exit warning and a rear view camera. You can up the ante even more with the City Specification, which adds in park assist, traffic sign recognition, pedestrian warning, city safeguard, reversing traffic warning, and a top-view camera. If it’s luxury you’re looking for, don’t forget to check out the Mulliner Driving Specification.

Why would you pay so much for any car? Simply put, because it’s a Bentley.
