Bentley Bentayga V8, luxury access with 550 HP and 290 km/h-tip

The Bentayga is assuming a great source of encouragement for Bentley. It’s an all-road luxury and of large dimensions that is working wonders in the british house, increasing in a very noticeable way the dealings of overall company. Being the top of range version W12, and also enjoying the diesel version, now it lands Bentley Bentayga V8, which is positioned as the version of access.

do Not think that to be the version of access you lose quality, performance or luxury compared to his brothers of range. Used by the engine V8 4.0-litre twin-turbo, developing nothing less than 550 CV at 6,000 rpm and 770 Nm of torque between 2,000 and 4,500 rpm. But there are many more things of great interest, as that is also available in settings of four, five or seven seats.

As expected, the V8 biturbo engine sends all its power to the tarmac through all four wheels, and its system of wheel drive permanent, passing previously through an automatic transmission ZF 8-relationships. This allows you to switch from 0 to 100 in 4,5 seconds and touch the 290 km/h of maximum speed; still some data slightly “worse” than the W12 -eroga more than 600 BHP, and reaches 300 km/h-. By the way, also account with deactivate half of its cylinders to reduce consumption and polluting emissions up to 11.4 l/100 km approved.

This Bentley Bentayga V8, which mounted the same propellant that the Porsche Cayenne Turbo, is positioned as the version more sports of the model. Although the engine performance data are slightly below the W12, its approach is quite a bit more dynamic. For example, their brake discs carbonocerámicos are the largest used ever for a series-production model, using disks of 440 mm front and 370 mm at the rear, being bitten with the front by huge forceps 10 piston. It is not surprising, because we have to stop 2.400 kg

air suspension, with a system of 48 V, counteracts instantly the inclinations of the body, doing that always turn very flat and, therefore, improving both the ride comfort as the stability curve virtually whatever the state of the asphalt. Has several driving modes, for both asphalt as well as for the field, and help systems for tricky conditions such as ascents or descents on slippery surfaces, snow mode, mud, sand, and a long etcetera.

For its part, this suspension, to be pneumatic, and allows to vary the height of the body at four levels different to suit the conditions of use, equip, also a mode that lowers the height of the rear in standing to facilitate loading and unloading of the trunk, something that we have already seen in other vehicles such as the Audi Q5.

Like any good Bentley, there are a multitude of possibilities of configuration and decoration the passenger compartment. On the other hand, it also has a large number of aids and wizards for driving and safety, and a lot of technology in the field of infotainment. Don’t forget about the occupants of the seats later, they can enjoy a new tablet of the brand, which is an Android device with a removable screen of 10.2 inches, 4G, Wifi and bluetooth. The Bentley Bentayga V8 can be equipped with a system of audio 1,950 watt and 18 speakers.
