With a bit of assistance from Kahn Design, the Bentley Bentayga V8 has embraced the dark side, from where it emerged with a series of visual customazations.
The exterior upgrades start with a standard Jet Black finish, or the optional Satin Black paint, as seen in this example, accentuated by new carbon fiber front and rear aprons, a new vented grille with a unique design, boot and (double) roof wings, quad exhaust finishers, and dark chrome exterior trimmings.
The finishing touch comes from a set of 23-inch black-colored rims wrapped in 295/35 Continental rubber. You also get an adjustable lowering suspension module that allows you to make its…parked stance more aggressive at the touch of a button – if you’re into that kind of display (but who are we kidding, of course you are if you’re looking at a murdered out Bentley SUV!).
Moving on inside, black Herringbone 3D Modular leather adorns the cabin joined by a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and door panels and handle surrounds in high gloss shadow. If that doesn’t satisfy you, the British tuner allows customers to choose between a wide selection of leather colors, fabrics and trims to create their perfect interior.
This Bentayga is the base petrol model with the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine. It pumps out 550 PS (542 hp / 404 kW) and 770 Nm (568 lb-ft) of torque. The 100 km/h (62 mph) mark is hit in 4.5 seconds in the stock model, which goes all the way up to 290 km/h (180 mph).
If Kahn’s Bentayga has tickled your fancy, learn that it has 50 miles (80 km) on the clock and will cost you upwards of £169,995 (equal to $221,000), but we’re not sure just how much more, as when we asked for more details, the company rep simply re-directed us to their sale’s ad. For reference, the base price of the Bentley Bentayga V8 starts from £136,200 in Britain.
