We Caught Thinly Disguised Bentley Bentayga SUV At A Parking Lot

These are the most revealing spy shots yet of Bentley’s new Bentayga super-luxury SUV.

The prototype that our spies discovered sitting at a parking lot had completely shed its fake body panels keeping only the head- and tail lamp decals, plus the masked out third rear window and front fender air-vents (shown in one of Bentley’s recent teasers).

Truth to be told, the Bentayga’s profile doesn’t look too different from that of Bentley‘s controversial 2012 EXP 9 F Concept, though, in that case, most of the criticism was directed towards the front end design, which will be completely different in the production model, as we saw in last year’s video announcement.

Underneath, there will be a few surprises, as besides the turbocharged V8 and W12 engines, the Bentayga will be the first Bentley to offer a plug-in hybrid drivetrain capable of driving some 30 miles (nearly 50 kilometers) on batter power alone.

Bentley has said that its SUV will offer “an impressive combination of on and off road performance” with the top model reportedly being designed to have a top speed in excess of 200mph (+320km/h).

The Bentayga will be built at Bentley’s Crewe facility and go on sale next year.
