Bentley Bentayga V8 arrives with 550 horsepower

Bentley introduces V8 engine to Bentayga line-up Bentley Bentayga V8 arrives with 550 horsepower

However it won't be the fastest, that title remaining with the Bentayga W12. The engine produces 542bhp and 770Nm of torque, 0-62mph takes 4.5 seconds and it reaches a top speed of 180mph - despite its hefty kerb weight of 2,395kg.

Up until now, people who had the means to afford a Bentley Bentayga could only choose between the range-topping W12 version and the V8-powered Diesel.

At the heart of the latest Bentayga model is a new-generation 4.0-litre, twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine which combines enormous power with impressive fuel efficiency. Paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, the Bentayga V8 will be able to propel itself from 0-60 in just 4.4 seconds and up to a top speed of 180 miles per hour, so it's not far off on paper.

Where you'll notice more difference is in economy (unless you use the Bentayga performance to the max) with official economy of 24.8mpg, although real-world will probably be mid to high teens.

"You can also now have carbon ceramic brakes on the Bentayga, there's stop/start as standard and cylinder deactivation, 22" alloys and red brake calipers.

The Bentayga V8's sporty nature is underlined by the inclusion of Bentley Dynamic Ride, a system that minimises body roll in corners, along with advanced stability and traction controls systems.

Like on the standard Bentayga, air suspension is fitted on the V8 petrol variant, and the auto is equipped with a choice of four different driver modes.

Bentley has unveiled a V8 petrol-powered variant of its Bentayga SUV.

Bentley aims to extend this reputation by offering the Bentayga in its most sporting guise to date - the Bentayga V8.

The usual array of active safety and driver assistance systems are standard or offered as options, including adaptive cruise control, traffic sign recognition, park assist and even a night vision system.

Styling-wise, the eight-cylinder model distinguishes itself from the W12 and the Diesel thanks to the black chrome grille and Bentley "twin-quad" exhaust tailpipes. The vehicle gets an eight-inch infotainment system that features a 60GB hard drive, while rear-seat passengers can make use of the new Bentley Entertainment Tablet if specified, which is a 10.2-inch Android tablet with 4G, WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity. Inside there are three new options - a high-gloss carbon-fibre finish replacing the traditional veneer surfaces; a wood and hide steering wheel available in seven different veneer finishes; and a new red leather dubbed Cricket Ball.
