Bentley Bentayga Diesel is officially the world's fastest diesel SUV
Luxury automobile maker Bentley has finally unveiled the diesel variant of its luxury SUV called the Bentayga Diesel.
Luxury automobile maker Bentley has finally unveiled the diesel variant of its luxury SUV called the Bentayga Diesel. Named after the rock formation on the Canary Islands the Bentley Bentayga comes with oodles of power with its 4.0-litre V8 engine that delivers a stunning 900Nm of torque.
There's a good 429bhp of power on tap and it easily catapults this beast of an SUV from 0-100kph in just 4.8 seconds. Top speed is rated at 270kph which is pretty darn good for a SUV. With its diesel chops, the Bentayga still manages to impress the lowest CO2 output of any Bentley – 210 g/km with a 1,000 km range potential.
And all of this comes with nothing less than what one would expect from a Bentley. The Bentayga’s cockpit sets new standards for both luxury and precision, with meticulous tolerances between the exquisite veneered woods and metal elements.
The hand-selected veneers – including a new Liquid Amber finish (shown above) introduced with Bentayga Diesel – form pure and elegant surfaces throughout the cabin. Each of the 15 pieces are shaped by Bentley’s artisans and finished with trademark Bentley attention to detail.
There's also plenty of goodies like multi-mode air suspension, Electric Power-Assisted Steering (EPAS), Electronic Stability Control (ESC), multi-mode Traction Control (TCS), Hill Descent Control, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Park Assist, and Electronic Night Vision among others.
Externally nothing has changed, and you still get the Bentley 'twin-quad' exhaust tailpipe design, black matrix grille with chrome surround and much more. Which is similar to what you get on the W12 petrol version that was launched in India back in April this year.
Wolfgang Dürheimer, chairman and chief executive of Bentley Motors, said: “The Bentayga Diesel represents a moment of immense significance in Bentley’s history, by giving the world its fastest luxury diesel SUV. Immense power, grand touring capabilities and superb refinement – this is a true Bentley. Only Bentley could produce a car so powerful, yet so refined.”
Bentley will begin deliveries for the diesel variant in early 2017.
