History of Bentley Bentayga V8 (Portofino)
Bentley introduced the Bentayga name to the public in January 2015. The name was derived from Rock Bentayga, an emblematic highland rock in Tejeda in Gran Canaria, the subtropical Canary Islands.
The company was also influenced by the combination of the names Bentley and Taiga – the largest transcontinental snow forest in the world. Consisting of the first four letters of Bentley and the updated Taiga, Bentayga also means “carried interest” in Swahili.
The Bentley Bentayga is a five-door luxury mid-size crossover with four-wheel drive sold by Bentley. Its body is manufactured at Volkswagen’s Zwickau-Mosel plant in Germany, then painted by Paintbox Editions in Banbury, England, and finally assembled at Bentley’s plant in Crewe, England.
The Bentayga development made its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2015, when it was unveiled as Bentley’s four-wheel-drive unibody SUV. In 2020, Bentley launched the new Bentayga, the second generation of this luxury SUV. The new Bentley Bentayga V8 was produced alongside its other sibling, the Bentayga Hybrid.
Following the launch of the first Bentayga with a W12 engine, the Bentayga Diesel was launched, followed by the luxurious Bentayga Mulliner. Bentley continues to innovate and explore the possibilities that arise when ultimate luxury meets exhilarating performance.
The Bentley Bentayga V8 is available in 8 different colours including Alpine Green, Glacier White, Beluga, St James Red, Crystal Black, Ice Silver, Arabica and Flame Orange. Bentley has given its high-end SUV a fair amount of off-road hardware.
The Bentayga V8 has been available to order in all current Bentley EU28 markets since February 2018. These markets include Morocco, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Georgia, Israel, Armenia, Ukraine, Monaco, Switzerland, Turkey, Russia and Belarus. It was released for order in all other Bentley markets later in 2018.
