The Bentley Bentayga V8: Exquisite Refinement and Astonishing Performance
Bentley has broken its own mold a bit by putting a V8 gas engine in the 2019 Bentley Bentayga V8 . Not just any engine, mind you, but a powerful 4.0 liter with twin turbochargers putting out 542 horsepower and 568 lb-ft of torque. It is connected to an 8-speed automatic transmission offering a lot of mid-range acceleration. Bentley states the V8 Bentayga will do 0-60 MPH in 4.4 seconds which is very impressive for a vehicle weighing more than 5000 pounds.
The Bentayga V8 is definitely a Bentley with its attention to detail, superb craftsmanship, fine leathers, and immaculate stitching. There are three seating arrangements available in the Bentayga V8; five-passenger using a rear bench seat, four-passenger with captain’s chairs and a center console in the rear, and a third row with two extra seats for a total of seven. Rear seat passengers can enjoy entertainment through an Android-based 10.2-inch tablet.
