What’s this, then? It’s the tricky-to-spell, difficult-to-miss Bentayga. Or, as Bentley modestly describes it, ‘the fastest, most powerful, most luxurious SUV in the world’. Bold claim. A bold claim indeed, but one that’s tough to dispute. Under the Bentayga’s significant bonnet sits a new version of Bentley’s 6.0-litre W12, with twin-scroll turbos plus high and low pressure direct fuel injection. An official 296g/km and 21.6mpg likely won’t be of much concern to potential Bentayga owners. A stated 600bhp and 663lb ft of torque certainly will. Such power will haul the 2.2-tonne Bentayga from 0-60mph in four seconds flat, and on to a v-max of 187mph. 187! In a full-fat SUV! Leaving aside the modified efforts of Germany’s ambitious tuning houses, no 4x4 will dispatch autobahns quicker. Fastest and most powerful? Check and check.
