Facelifted Bentley Bentayga Speed teased ahead of launch

Bentley will unveil an updated version of the 190mph Bentayga Speed next week, featuring all the tweaks applied to the standard model

Bentley has teased the facelifted version of the Bentayga Speed. It’ll be officially unveiled on 12 August, sporting the same range of cosmetic and technology upgrades fitted to the recently revised standard SUV.

Like the standard model, the updated Bentayga Speed will feature an entirely redesigned front end which will bring the SUV’s styling in line with the latest Continental GT and Flying Spur. That means the same broad radiator grille, reshaped LED headlamps, reprofiled front wings and upturned nose as its V8-powered sibling.

However, as this is the flagship Speed model, Bentley will also fit a few extra styling tweaks, such as an aggressive front splitter, deeper side skirts, a high-level tailgate spoiler and a new rear diffuser, which houses a quad-exit exhaust system.

Inside, buyers will likely get some fresh door trims and a pair of updated sport seats, along with a wireless smartphone charging pad, a new 10.9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a fully digital instrument binnacle and a remote tablet which allows rear-seat passengers to control the SUV’s various functions.

It’ll be powered by the same twin-turbocharged 6.0-litre W12 engine as the outgoing model, which should have an identical output of 626bhp and 900Nm of torque. The V8-engined version’s output also remained unchanged, so we don’t expect Bentley will go through the hassle of screwing more power from the W12 model.

As such, the Bentayga Speed’s performance figures should be identical, with a 0–62mph time of 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 190mph – meaning it’ll retain its position as the world’s fastest SUV, being 0.5mph faster at the top end than the Lamborghini Urus.
