On the surface, a luxurious Bentley with a Startech body kit may seem to be an unlikely combination. But on second thought, a heavily customized Bentley Bentayga in special Verdant Green body color ticks all the boxes of what you’d look for in an unconventional high performance vehicle.
Startech is a subsidiary of the more popular Brabus after-market tuning company. Brabus has been specializing in high end brands such as Maybach and Mercedes-Benz. The company has also ventured into tuning Smart Automobiles which is the compact car division of Daimler AG. On the other side, Startech has been known for customizing off-road vehicles like those coming from Range Rover, Land Rover and Jaguar. The Bentley Bentayga as we know is the most expensive and luxurious sport utility vehicle in the UK.
In case you’re wondering how it all went, the odd combination of a Bentley in green color and Startech’s exterior upgrades has turned into something marvelous. By all means, the owner of this Verdant Green Bentayga would be more than pleased to see the final result.Read the entire article The nastiest-looking Bentley Bentayga in Verdant Green dons a Startech body kit
When Bentley Motors unveiled the EXP 9 F luxury SUV concept at the 2012 Geneva Auto Show, not a few expected the British carmaker to launch a premium SUV sooner or later. Because of the interest vested in what could be the world’s first luxury SUV, this concept paved the way for the introduction of the Bentley Bentayga premium SUV a few years later.
Bentley followed up the EXP 9 F luxury SUV show car by unveiling the EXP 10 Speed 6 luxury sports coupe concept at the 2015 Geneva Auto Show. Given the reception for this two-seater luxury sports car, it wouldn’t be surprising if Bentley does decide to introduce a production version. Likewise, considering Bentley’s history, it wouldn’t be a big surprise if the luxury sports coupe would have its own convertible version.
To see whether a coupe convertible from Bentley would make a business case – at least visually – it could be better if the EXP 10 Speed 6 luxury sports coupe concept has an open top variant. As for a graphical representation of a convertible variant of the EXP 10 Speed 6 luxury coupe concept, we could turn to visual artists specializing in automotive renderings. One of these artists is rc-workchop.Read the entire article Rc-workchop creates convertible rendering of Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6 Concept
Sometimes, being on top isn’t enough, especially for this Bentley Bentayga, which has been thoroughly tinkered by German tuning firm DMC. In terms of the fusion of power and luxury in the SUV world, the highly premium Bentley Bentayga could be considered as the authority.
Aside from its luxurious and technology laden bespoke interior and its hegemonic exterior, the Bentley Bentayga deserves to be called the most powerful SUV thanks to its potent core -- a monstrous 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged W12 engine.
This W12 engine can deliver up to 600 hp (447 kW) of output and up to 663 lb.-ft. of peak torque, allowing the Bentayga to sprint from a standstill to 60 mph in just 4.0 seconds and eventually reach a top speed of 187 mph (300 km/h). Massive, isn’t it? For DMC, however, it wasn’t enough. That is why this German tuner decided to place its stakes higher and create what it dubbed as the DMC Bentley Bentayga "Gigante."Read the entire article DMC Gigante is a heavily tuned Bentley Bentayga with 700 hp and 1,055 Nm
Bentley once again confirmed its plans to push PHEV into their future lineups. As a matter of fact, the Bentayga SUV will be the first to have the plugin hybrid technology, which will also be using a V6 engine. Next on the line would be none other than the new generation Bentley Continental GT. And there’s more to come.
During a recent press interview with Automotive News, Wolfgang Duerheimer reiterated the fact that plugin hybrids no longer serve as “temporary bridge technology”. Instead, it now offers the best features of both cars with internal combustion engine as well as those of electric powered vehicles.
The CEO also considers the fact that the upcoming plugin variants would be their answer to the consumers who want to use their cars to go to places where gasoline and diesel engines would no longer be allowed.Read the entire article Confirmed: Bentley will offer plugin hybrids for every model
British carmaker Bentley wasn’t joking when it said it would introduce the “most extreme Bentley ever.” Here it is, the new 2017 Bentley Continental Supersports. Aside from being Bentley’s most extreme model in terms of acceleration and speed, the new Bentley Continental Supersports is now the world’s fastest four-seat model.
The introduction of the new Continental Supersports shows that Bentley has yet to be done with the current generation of the Continental GT.
As we expected, “the most extreme Bentley ever” ultimately points to the Continental Supersports’ awesome performance on the road that could even dominate other four-seaters in terms of speed and acceleration.Read the entire article 2017 Bentley Continental Supersports is fastest four-seater ever built
Bentley will be launching the next generation of its Continental GT coupe sometime late this year. This has got us very excited. After all, the current generation of the Continental GT has been in existence for nearly six years. It’s high time that Bentley introduces a new generation of its grand tourer.
But it seems Bentley isn’t done yet with the current generation of the Continental GT – the second one as it plans to unveil a new version that would render the previous Bentleys speechless. In fact, Bentley has released a short video clip that teases the newest – and probably the last – iteration of the second-gen Continental GT. This version has been dubbed by the British carmaker as the most “the most extreme Bentley ever,” which could ultimately point to its performance on the road. All will be known when Bentley takes the wrap off this latest vehicle on January 6, 2017.
While the short video teaser didn’t say something about this Bentley being a Continental GT, the Continental GT is the only current model that allows the marque to push its performance limits further. We could speculate that the model shown on the teaser video is the Continental Supersports. The first generation of the Continental GT features a Supersports version. The Continental Supersports was the most powerful version of the first-gen Continental GT, with its 6.0-liter W12 twin-turbo engine providing 621 hp (630 PS or 463 kW) of max output at 6,00 rpm and 800 Nm (590 lb.-ft.) of torque available at 1,700 rpm.Read the entire article Watch out for unveiling of ‘Most Extreme Bentley Ever’ on January 6
Having a blacked-out Bentley Mulsanne Speed is already menacing by itself but by naming it as the Bamford X, it became all the more imposing. This model was made by the brand’s very own bespoke department Mulliner, and was developed specifically for JCB heir and watch customizer George Bamford.
In terms of dimensions alone, the Bamford X is showing that it is not something you play around with. Overall length stands at 5,575 mm (219.5 in.) with total width of 1,926 mm (75.8 in.) and height at 1,521 mm (59.9 in.).
Looking at the exterior, the Bamford X follows a black-on-black theme, which is the signature of many of the Bamford Watch Department’s customized timepieces. For the bodywork, the brand made sure to give it that Beluga black finish. Much like the color scheme, this color is similar to what Bamford gets during the different processes like Graphite Particle Coating and Military Grade Titanium Coating.Read the entire article Blacked-out Bamford X Bentley Mulsanne Speed is truly impressive
Known for its luxurious bespoke interiors, the Bentayga's $275,000 price tag seems to be worth every penny for some people. However, Bentley happens to have overlooked something very important while assembling the production model for its latest Bentayga SUV. As it turns out, the bolts on the posh vehicle’s seat mechanism and dashboard were not properly secured. (tsk, tsk)
We know for a fact that a loosely tightened screw could compromise the vehicle’s overall safety. Over time, the frequent vibrations could make it lose its alignment completely. This is not something you’d expect from an SUV that costs an arm and a leg. Among Bentley’s bespoke interior add-ons include a fishing set, a Breitling tourbillon clock and a Linley hamper set that you can stuff with an exclusive picnic menu from Gloucestershire England’s Daylesford organic farm.
Only this year, Bentley added a new engine range for its famous Bentayga model. The Bentayga diesel comes with 4.0 litre V8 turbo charged direct injection engine. It uses the same powerplant as that of Audi’s SQ7 SUV. Thus, allowing it to produce as much as 429 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque. Basically, the Bentayga diesel can go from zero to one hundred kilometres per hour in less than 5 seconds, with top speed reaching 168 miles per hour.Read the entire article Recall is ongoing for 2017 Bentley Bentayga due to injury risk from loose dashboard, seat
When BMW revealed its X7 SUV, the goal was to make it a rival not only to the Range Rover but also to the GLS from Mercedes-Benz. The brand however appears to be taking it to the next level as a possible contender versus the Bentley Bentayga as BMW unveiled plans of coming out with a 4-seater version.
Given the change from a 7-seater to a 4-seater, this means that this new version will offer additional space for the two passengers sitting in the back. However, this is not the only change as some features of the exterior have been modified with the interior getting an upscale treatment.
BMW said though that even if the two versions of the X7 will be manufactured alongside the Rolls-Royce SUV, the former will be using a different platform altogether. Mainly the X7 will utilize the 7-Series as it will also be using the 6-cylinder engine or the 8-cylinder unit. It will be combined with an electric powertrain and maybe even a V12.Read the entire article BMW plans to challenge Bentley Bentayga with 4-seater X7
Many are now likely acquainted with the Linley hamper that can easily be slotted to the trunk of the Bentley Bentayga. As if to highlight a good use for this hamper, organic farm Daylesford created a picnic menu which, according to Bentley, highlights the fall produce that comes from Daylesford’s farm located in Gloucestershire, England.
The menu itself has a number of really delicious offerings that include a carved pumpkin that has been stuffed with green kale, crispy bacon, apples, and toasted seed, with honey mustard dressing added to it. Other offerings include the buckwheat tabbouleh; chocolate praline slices, and lemon and raspberry gateau; raspberry macaroons with buttercream filling; red kuri squash, chilli, and chickpea cakes; roasted squash and balsamic red onion tartlets; and wild mushroom, truffle, and gruyere arancini. Indeed, looking at all of these, delicious may not be enough of a word to describe it.
According to Chef Fuller, late autumn is always a good period for Daylesford as it becomes teemed with a number of produce. Since it is during this period that the weather starts to grow cold, Fuller revealed that they wanted to focus on the strong and earthy flavors of the farm’s many types of beetroot, squash, and pumpkin. Each of which has been grown during the summer months using rich organic soil. Through the use of careful slow cooking methods, he added, the subtle sweetness of these produce is brought out. Combined with game, wild mushrooms, or even grass pastured beef, the end result is an excellent way to celebrate the season.Read the entire article Daylesford reveals perfect menu for luxurious picnic on the Bentley Bentayga
For many people, the word Bentley generally refers to luxury, beauty, and refinement. A good example of this is the 2017 Bentayga which was first revealed back in 2015. While undoubtedly the most expensive SUV on the market, it also boasts of being the fastest with electronically limited speed at 187 mph.
However for Germany-based Mansory, this was clearly not enough as the celebrated tuning company has taken a shot at the 2017 Bentayga and has come out with a version that does away with the English country feel and instead brings with it a look that’s much sportier and far more exciting.
It was back in May of this year when Mansory first offered a glimpse of how they would approach the 2017 Bentayga. Then they showed a grille and hood made of carbon fiber and fitted with the 23-inch multi-spoke wheels. While there was no word on the interior, there was a promise that inside would be a mix of carbon fiber, wood, Alcantara, and high-quality leather.Read the entire article Mansory releases tuned version of 2017 Bentley Bentayga
Bentley Motors has just released the specs of the new Bentayga Diesel. Obviously, we couldn’t wait to share it here since it’s the first ever diesel model to come out of the British brand’s long automotive history.
To begin with, the diesel-powered SUV bears the world’s most powerful and fastest V8 powertrain. It goes without saying how Bentley’s highly advanced technology and expertise have helped them create this astonishing 32-valve, 4Litre, triple-charged diesel engine.
The Bentayga Diesel can go from 0-100km/h in just 4.8 seconds with top speed of 270km/h. It also makes a very good 429bhp and 664lb-ft of torque unlike anything that is already there.Read the entire article Bentley releases specs of new Bentayga Diesel, boasts high power and low emissions
Bentley Motors is now unveiling the Flying Spur W12 S, the new flagship of its Flying Spur range. The Flying Spur W12 S is power, luxury and style fused into a single four-door Bentley. It is targeted towards customers seeking a more athletic Bentley that boasts of more power, torque and responsiveness.
In fact, this new Flying Spur flagship is powerful enough to cruise over 200 mph – making it the fastest Flying Spur to date. This sterling performance is thanks to its 6.0-liter, twin-turbo W12 engine that has been calibrated and tuned to deliver 635 PS (626 bhp) of max output (plus 10 PS) and 820 Nm (605 lb. ft.) of peak torque (plus 20 Nm), available from just 2,000 rpm.
Technically speaking, this amount of power allows the Flying Spur W12 S to achieve a top speed of 325 km/h (202 mph), with the ability to dash from zero to 100 km/h in just 4.5 seconds (0-60 mph in 4.2 seconds). Power from the twin-turbo W12 engine is translated to speed through the all-wheel-drive system. Thanks to a 40:60 rear-biased torque split, the Flying Spur W12 S is able to deliver sporty and dynamic driving experience in any road and weather condition.Read the entire article Bentley Motors boosts Flying Spur range with new W12 S flagship
For almost a century, Bentley has been one of the leading luxury motorcar manufacturers. It has always prided itself for producing hand-built luxury vehicles that have been given a lot of time and effort by their resident designers, craftsmen and engineers. In terms of putting together technology and timeless elegance, Bentley is already an expert of this field. Its production and manufacturing houses create some of the world’s most classic and expensive cars, some of which have served high-profile personalities like Queen Elizabeth.
Last year, Bentley introduced to the world an SUV that was beyond all others of its kind. The Bentley Bentayga is a classic offering into the realm of SUVs, living proof that not all SUVs are the stereotypical soccer mom service vehicle. What most of us do not know is that there is more to the Bentayga than meets the eye, more than its authoritarian exterior or even the 600 horsepower under its hood.
The name “Bentayga” is a combination of the company founder’s name and the Taiga, a biome that is typically found in the northern hemisphere.Read the entire article Amazing facts about the Bentley Bentayga that most people do not know about
The Bentley Bentayga is the most expensive luxury SUV there is in the market today with a price tag of about $230,000. But this luxury SUV has a polarizing look that seems to be a bit off for a Bentley ensemble. Many share the opinion that the Bentayga is able to (somewhat) make up for its appearance by packing 600 horsepower inside its twin-turbo 6.0-liter W12 as well as accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds with a 184 mph top speed.
However, there are just some who wish that Bentley should’ve invested more on the Bentayga’s appearance than make it look like one of their coupes but in a SUV’s body. Good thing there are auto tuners around the world who for some reason, like a bit of a challenge. For those Bentayga owners who wish for a better looking Bentayga, then Startech can do the magic for you.
Startech is part of German high-performance auto tuning company Brabus and specializes in tuning Bentleys, Jaguars, Land Rovers and Range Rovers. Just recently, Startech released a “refined” version of the Bentayga focusing mostly on retaining its sporty elegance while improving aerodynamics and some of its physical features.Read the entire article Startech unveils sporty package for Bentley Bentayga

Bentley has just unveiled the revised Continental GT Speed, which is now more powerful and a lot quicker than the previous model.

This extra torque is applied through the entire rev range by optimizing boost control, allowing the vehicle to deliver continuous maximum torque between 2,000 rpm and 5,000 rpm.

The English Royal Fleet is composed of two Bentleys, three Rolls-Royces and three Daimlers plus a few Volkswagen “people carriers”. It’s no wonder why luxury car manufacturers Bentley and Rolls-Royce are given the bragging rights and claim that they can make any of its owners feel like one of England’s royalties. Equipped to be safe and efficient and painted in Royal claret livery, these cars are used for the royal family’s public engagements and some ceremonial functions.
The Royal fleet actually has two recent Bentley State Cars. The first of the two was given during the Queen’s Golden Jubilee in 2002. These cars were uniquely designed to have a monocoque construction to be able to maximize the vehicle’s interior space. Compared to the usual Bentley, the Royal Bentleys are nearly a meter longer (at least 6.22 meters long). It is also designed with rear doors that are hinged at the back so that The Queen can stand up straight before heading out.
And for full visibility of the royal family, the Bentleys are designed with a removable exterior roof covering. However, just recently, it has been reported that Her Royal Majesty is getting rid of one of her Bentleys – the newest one in the fleet, the Bentley Mulsanne.Read the entire article The Queen's Bentley Mulsanne for sale as she expects the new Bentayga
