Based on the Bentayga V8, this special edition model boasts new Mulliner features such as its Palladium Grey Paragon wheels and Self Leveling Wheel badges. Inside, it sports a color-themed cabin, with a carbon fiber weave and Duotone color palette available for the first time.
More road presence
Standard on the V8 Design Series is the Bentayga Blackline specification, which adds a body-colored lower front bumper apron and twin gloss black tailpipes. The British SUV also comes with Design Series badging on the lower front doors, discreetly pointing to its special edition credentials.
The new Mulliner Paragon wheels come in a seven-spoke design and feature a dark metallic Palladium Grey finish with polished accents. Then there’s the previously-mentioned Mulliner Self Leveling Wheel badge, which helps the ‘B’ maintain a vertical orientation as the wheels rotate.
Additional style throughout
The interior of the Bentayga V8 Design Series has a Duotone palette with four colorful themes in Pillar Box Red, Orange, Mulliner White and Klein Blue, to go with the Beluga main hide. There’s also a new contrast accent design line color split, placing a vivid high contrast color on the center console and lower dashboard.
Other special touches include the Duotone seat center perforations (front and rear), all-new carbon fiber weave (dashboard and doors), Piano Black finish for the console and center fascia, Duotone embroidery on the seatbacks, illuminated treadplates, Front Seat Comfort spec, drilled alloy sports pedals and footrest, deep pile floor mats and an overall dark tonal interior design theme.
Last but not least, there’s a diamond-jeweled Breitling clock resting on top of the central air vents, with a light mother of pearl face.
Powering the Bentayga V8 Design Series is a 4.0-liter twin turbocharged V8 petrol unit, producing 542 HP (550 PS) and 568 lb-ft (770 Nm) of torque. In a straight line, the SUV can max out at 180 mph (290 km/h) and rocket from zero to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 4.4 seconds, with 0-100 km/h taking 4.5 seconds.
