Mansory releases tuned version of 2017 Bentley Bentayga

Article by Christian A., on November 1, 2016

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.

So how did the final version fare? Everything starts out in the front. The nose for instance comes with a number of carbon fiber pieces. While the front fascia’s air intakes have been made more pronounced, Mansory made sure to make the lower splitter have a more athletic feel. Through the use of the fender flares and the big side skirts, it allowed the 2017 Bentayga to look wider than it already is.

There are other carbon fiber trims that can be seen as well on the lower fascia. On the rear section, above the liftgate is a giant wing and below it is the sports exhaust system newly put in by Mansory. While the 23-inch wheels are fitted in as standard, offered as an option are the 22-inch units, though the wheels have been placed on each of the corners. Finally just under the window in the rear, mounted is a lip spoiler, made as well of carbon fiber.

As the first teaser released by Mansory did not reveal anything about the interior, it is now clear that the whole cabin has been remodeled. The pedals are new, same with the leather upholstery. Airbags fitted come with a new design and complement the features already mentioned. There are different Mansory-exclusive add-ons too.

In terms of engine, Mansory put in the bi-turbocharged W12 6.0-liter engine with output at 691 horsepower (515 kW), a far cry from the standard version’s 600 hp output. Torque has been increased as well from 664 lb.-ft. in the standard version to the 773 lb.-ft. (1,050 Nm) in Mansory’s version.

Clearly, words will be different from the real thing and with that said, those who want to get a closer look can attend the 2016 SEMA Show in Las Vegas this month. This is where the Mansory Bentayga is slated to make its official public debut after which it will be made available to customers around the world.

MANSORY has refined the Bentley Bentayga to create the ultimate Luxury SUV

There’s no doubt about it - MANSORY knows what they’re doing when it comes to refining luxury automobiles. With their tuning programme for the all-terrain Bentayga from the British luxury brand Bentley, the Bavarian brand MANSORY has established themselves as the first port of call for sporting accessories and exciting bodywork design.

With a depth of manufacturing unparalleled in the tuning segment, the 200-employee strong company presents itself as a modern manufacturer with its own team of highly qualified specialists. From working on designs, constructing models through ‘baking’ the carbon bodywork parts in autoclaves, MANSORY offers a complete in-house reworking of the Bentayga’s aerodynamics. The result: a wide construction style combined with an enhanced vehicle silhouette as well as additional output for achieving increased speed in corners.

The nose of the Bentley Bentayga has been fully enhanced with a complete apron, including integrated front lip made from visible carbon fibre as well as additional LED daytime running lights. The front grill has also received a carbon fibre facelift with the ultra-light carbon hood completing the front of the vehicle.

On the flanks, striking MANSORY extensions ensure a consistent design and make the Bentayga appear not only more powerful, but deeper looking and wider. To reduce lift on the rear axle, MANSORY technicians developed a beautifully formed spoiler for mounting onto the tailgate, as well as a matching 2-part roof spoiler. In addition, a new rear skirt with diffuser sets ideally complements the two double tailpipes of the sport exhaust system. Numerous components made from visible carbon fibre, such as trim, mirror housing and air inlets vents complete the bodywork programme. One of the technical highlights of the Bentayga refinement programme is the new light-weight wheel named the Y5/1. These one-piece cast wheel unite sportiness and elegance. Narrow spokes enable optimal dissipation of the frictional heat generated by the brakes and further emphasise the dynamism of the wheels. The diamond- polished rim surface, on the other hand, underlines the car’s noble aesthetic. The oversized combination of wheels and tyres measures 10.5 x 23 inches and features Continental tyres with dimensions of 295/35ZR23, which fully utilise the maximum wheel diameter currently enabled by the front and rear wheel arches. The Y5/1 is also already available as a 22 inch forged wheel and will soon be part of the refinement programme as a cast wheel.

The centrepiece of MANSORY’s refinement programme is a powerful performance increase. The scope of the upgrade includes a sports silencer and a new engine management. The result for the Bentley Bentayga’s 12-cylinder engine is an astounding performance of 701PS/515kW as well as increased torque now totalling 1050Nm. In addition, the top speed is approx. 10km/h higher than standard.

Following the traditions of the Bentley brand, which place a great deal of emphasis on comfort, luxury and sportiness in the interior cabin, MANSORY now offers the finest in interior applications to match the car’s superior credentials. For instance, there is an aluminium pedal set as well as a redesigned airbag steering wheel with sporting accents. If requested, MANSORY can provide individually stitched floor mats through to fully hand-made leather upholstery - everything a discerning Bentley owner could desire. And as you would expect from MANSORY - everything is manufactured in line with stringent manufacturing standards.
