Bentley Bentayga V8 Petrol Revealed

Bentley Bentayga gets a V8 petrol motor

The Bentley Bentayga SUV gets a 4.0 litre V8 with 542bhp as the Bentayga V8 arrives to offer a more "affordable" entry-level alternative to the W12 Bentayga.

In comparison with the W12, output drops slightly, but most customers won't notice; the W12 churns out 600 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque and will still be a little quicker from 0-60 miles per hour, getting there in 4.0 seconds flat.

The new V8-powered Bentayga can hit 0-62 mph in 4.4 seconds and tops out at 180 mph, compared to the four second sprint time and 187 mph top speed of its twelve-cylinder counterpart. And we bet the same will be true in the case of the Bentayga which has just spawned a V-8 option of its own.

But, just as you'll find in the Continental GT, it's probably the V8 Bentayga which will now will be the pick of the Bentayga range, despite its lower power. A Bentayga Hybrid is also coming soon, though no specs for this model have been released.


The V8 model will be distinguished by a black and chrome grille, as well as figure-eight-shaped exhaust tips. According to the automaker, these are the largest brake discs to ever be installed in a Bentley and the largest front brake system available on any production auto, measuring 440 mm with ten-piston calipers at the front and 370 mm at the back. The discs alone are a massive 17.3 inches up front.

The unique features continue inside, with Bentley offering a carbon-fibre finish on the surfaces and a wood and hide three-spoke steering wheel - both of which are firsts for the brand. A suite of electronic river aids, which includes a system for going off-road, is part of the vehicle's tech package, along with an infotainment system controlled by an 8.0-inch touchscreen display.

Bentley hasn't announced availability but look for the Bentayga V8 to make its way into showrooms this spring. There are three sound systems available, the most powerful of which has 18 speakers for awesome surround sound. Similarly, the V8 model is expected to land a bit south of the $230,000 starting price of the W12 model.
