Mansory's Take On The Bentley Bentayga Has 701 PS To Play With

The Bentayga might not sit well with a number of Bentley purists, but there are others who'll very happily line up for a Crewe-made SUV - and that crowd is exactly who Mansory is targeting with its quite extrovert proposition.

The Bavarian brand's take on the Bentayga is comprehensive. Thanks to its own autoclaves that are used to “bake” carbon fiber molds, it was able to design a completely new wide-body kit.

The Bentayga’s front fascia now features new carbon-fiber bits such as an integrated front lip, front grille with air scoops mounted on top and an ultra-lightweight hood. There are also wider fenders and side-skirts, while at the back a spoiler and a diffuser were added to reduce lift.

The vehicle’s cabin was up next, with Mansory saying the finest materials were used in order to match the car’s superior credentials. Changes include a new aluminum pedal set, a redesigned steering wheels, individually stitched floor mats, and even re-upholstered seats.

It's not all looks, though, as they also tuned the twin-turbo W12 to boast 701 PS (691 hp) and 1050 Nm (774 lb-ft) of torque, so the Bentayga now tops out at an extraordinary 311 km/h (193 mph).
