Newest Bentley Bentayga weight at 5,379 lbs. That is quite a lot, but not that much over, let’s say, the Continental GT. That one weighs at 5,181 lbs. So, with similarly powerful engines, these two, despite the shape and character discrepancies, should ride similarly. At least, they should accelerate similarly. Now, we have a video showing the Bentley Bentayga acceleration. This behemoth with a W12 engine developing 600hp is, probably, the fastest SUV out there. Auto Bild from Germany tested it and the video you are about to see is captured on the German autobahn. There, the mightiest of the SUVs succeeded to accelerate to incredible 187 mph. This is a very important number. 301 km/h. This is insanely fast.
Crewe vehicle moves around with 900 Nm of torque. Not many series production cars can match this. Obviously, all this twist is capable of making the Bentayga superior even by the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S standards. Lavish, staggeringly fast SUV matches some of the best sports cars in its pursuit for speed. 60 mph is in reach after 4 seconds, while Bentayga slashes the quarter of a mile time in 11.9 seconds. This is simply incredible.
Sure, the car comes at a price – a steep one. In the US it costs rather insane $229,100. Is it too much?! Perhaps, but the fact is that the Bentayga is probably a perfect SUV out there.
