Special Features of the Bentley Bentayga V8
The clock itself is entirely electric. It is a winder that rotates the entire clock constantly to ensure the electricity never runs out.
The Breitling clock is also an incredibly handmade chronograph exclusive for the Bentayga V8. This feature is finished with either rose gold or white, preferably your choice.
The Breitling completes this work of art with eight real diamonds making it a real masterpiece.
Wireless Apple Carplay
Together with Android Auto, Wireless Apple Carplay is a standard and an embedded SIM that provides data for in-car services. You will no longer need an internet link from your mobile device.
It allows iPhone and iPad users to access, without touching, calls, texts, audio, and video from their smartphones.
A single lightning cable attaches the unit to the vehicle, allowing access, like Siri to CarPlay supported features and software.
Five Seat Comfort Specification
The new Five Seat Comfort Specification raises the overall recline and movement of the seats forward and backward.
Adding up to 100 mm of rear leg space relative to the previous model, the seats also benefit from the new seats, which have a more sculpted appearance for improved convenience, seat cooling, six massage modes, and a winged comfort headrest.
Drive Dynamics Control
A choice of driving modes is provided by the Drive Dynamics Control, giving total trust and control. Use the intuitive spinning control to switch between four settings: Comfort, Sport, Custom, and Bentley.
The ideal balance between comfort and performance is given by the Bentley mode. The Sport mode provides increased performance, and the most refined ride is offered by the Comfort mode.
You can pick those parameters in Custom mode to suit your own driving style.
Blind Spot Assist
Blind Spot Assist is a standard feature on multi-lane roads that assists drivers. The device offers assurance with visual and auditory warning signs in addition to a head-check.
It helps locate an unidentified car in the blind spot. If the machine detects the drivers with a red triangle in the matching exterior mirror, found in the blind spot region, the system warns them.
When the turn signal is triggered, the triangle pulses rapidly and an audible alarm sounds. The device uses proximity sensors to track the side and rear of a vehicle in an area of approximately three meters.
The All-Terrain Specification introduces four new drive modes, dubbed as responsive off-road settings. These cover almost any terrain likely to be moved by the new Bentayga: wet turf, dirt and gravel, mud and trail, and sand.
The driver clearly chooses the most suitable mode for terrain and all applicable vehicle systems are optimized automatically.
Specialized off-road systems are also enabled, working together to provide you with total stability and trust, such as Hill Descent Control.
The All-Terrain Specification also provides extra robust underfloor security that adds to the sensitive off-road settings.
With a separate screen in the infotainment system, it shows valuable statistics and a baggage control system to ensure that things in the boot are properly protected, including while crossing a sand dune.
Interior of the Bentley Bentayga V8
Veneered Door Panels
Veneered door panels improve the natural atmosphere of Bentayga’s indoor space. This feature presents a continuation of the veneered front console’s natural comfort.
Intricate mirror matching techniques are used to create a fine, symmetrical pattern than with a UV stabilizer to shield the rich colors from bleaching.
The final result is one that you’ll savor for several years to come.
3 spoke Hide-trimmed Steering Wheel
With Bentley’s wide range of steering wheel options, the solution is always at hand.
The steering wheel features cruise control, radio, a trip computer, driver information panel, and volume controls, all handcrafted in a time-honored Bentley tradition specifically for you.
The 10.9-inch central touchscreen shows off a brighter, higher resolution anti-reflective and anti-glare panel.
While the physical keys underneath the screen duplicate the touchscreen keys, the main screen can be configured to view three favorite screens, such as your phone, navigation, and media.
The modified navigation system will view three-dimensional structures, satellite maps, and head-up displays, among other features. This can also project traffic details, street names, and distance to the destination.
Mulliner Biometric Secure Stowage
The most recent addition from Mulliner is the central console-mounted secure case. The secure box is unlocked with the owner’s fingerprints – like you’ve been unlocking your phones these days.
It can only hold items such as a wristwatch, a necklace, or even a wallet or a cellphone.
Bentley adds this feature to provide Bentayga owners with a hidden safe box that no one else besides them has knowledge of it.
Naim-Bentley Audio System
Bentley’s Naim Audio for the new Bentayga is the most powerful audio system available on the SUV. Taking in-car music to a different level is provided by the twenty-speakers.
This includes nine mid-range and tweeter combinations, four advanced bass speakers, and a 300-watt subwoofer.
A pair of super tweeters extends the high-frequency range, giving the system the widest frequency range ever experienced in a car.
It also makes use of active bass transducers, subtly augmenting the audio experience so that low frequencies are felt as well as heard.
This is to make sure that the music is louder than the sound of dropped jaws hitting the ground as you wow the pedestrians.
Four-zone Climate Control
The four-zone climate control separates the cabin temperature into four zones for each of the primary seats in the vehicle.
This feature allows the driver to control the temperature of the rear cabin. All of these set-ups also come with a ‘Sync’ button that sets all areas at the same temperature.
Exterior of the Bentley Bentayga V8
The strikingly designed air deflectors for the side air intake and the front wing adds more profile to the front of the Bentayga.
Thanks to their advanced shape, all aerodynamic-enhancing elements play a role in minimizing lifts at high-speeds and thereby improving handling stability.
It brings a more dynamic and commanding presence, allowing its elegant bonnet to sweep downwards to the very edge of the chrome work.
21-inch Five Twin-Spoke Wheel
The 21-inch Five Twin-spoke Wheel of the Bentayga V8 is the epitome of the form used to withstand its immense power and torque.
They are also a suitable accompaniment to the flowing lines and the stately appearance of the car’s exterior, adding a stunning effect to the overall appearance of the Bentayga V8.
High Beam Assist LED headlamps
The new Bentayga turns to new elliptical front lamps that are designed to illuminate the way.
The new headlamps bear Bentley’s signature ‘crystal-cut’ design that achieves a unique effect with transparent internal surfaces and sharply defined diamond edges.
These headlamps are not only visually spectacular but also sports state-of-the-art matrix beam technology. It enables the driver to experience optimum visibility at all times.
Automatic integrated lighting modes guarantee optimal lighting for traffic and road situations. This gives the Bentayga V8 a touch of class and personality, allowing the headlamps to sparkle even when on standby.
The rear design of the new Bentayga is dramatically different. It embodies a unique 3D jeweled appearance tailgate.
These LED taillamps emit an array of tiny, sometimes colorful glittering lights, making vehicles easier to spot in the dark by drivers of other cars following behind.
The design of the lamps complements the new rear bumper and raises to the immense reserves of power at the driver’s disposal.
It also has a deep, three-dimensional glow thanks to its lattice pattern that offers a unique illumination appearance when turned on.
The panoramic sunroof of the new Bentayga allows the sunshine to enter the cabin where you’re sitting, which helps to improve your overall mood.
Exposing yourself to the natural light while cruising around the city or down the freeway helps you feel warmer and happier. Panoramic sunroofs are built to produce less wind noise inside the cabin rather than opening the car window.
Roof rails serve as basic support for transporting things on the roof. With their help, the car can be put to varied use if the interior is already full.
With suitable accessories for secure fastening, there is room on the roof rails for bicycles, skis, boxes, surfboards, or even boats. Since the roof rails are aerodynamically shaped, they do not cause wind noise.

History of Bentley Bentayga V8
Bentley publicly unveiled the Bentayga name in January 2015. The name was derived from Rock Bentayga, an emblematic highland rock located in Tejeda, Gran Canaria, the subtropical Canary Islands. The company also took influence from the combination of the names Bentley and Taiga – world’s largest transcontinental snow forest. Consisting of the first four letters of Bentley and the updated taiga, Bentayga also means “carried interest” in Swahili.
The Bentley Bentayga is a mid-size, all-wheel drive, five-door luxury crossover sold by Bentley. Its body is produced at the Volkswagen Zwikau-Mosel Plant in Germany, then painted by Paintbox Editions in Banbury, England, and finally assembled at the Bentley plant in Crewe, England. The Bentayga development debuted at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2015. It was known then as Bentley’s unibody-built, and a full-time all-wheel-drive SUV.
In 2020, Bentley has launched the new Bentayga, which is the second generation of this luxurious SUV. The new Bentley Bentayga V8 was produced along with its other sibling – the Bentayga Hybrid. After launching the first Bentayga with a W12 engine came the addition of Bentayga Diesel, then followed by the luxurious Bentayga Mulliner. Bentley continues to innovate and explore the possibilities which arise where ultimate luxury meets thrilling performance.
The Bentley Bentayga V8 offers 8 different colours including Alpine Green, Glacier White, Beluga, St James Red, Crystal Black, Ice Silver, Arabica, and Flame Orange. Bentley did induce a healthy amount of off-roading hardware in its high-end SUV. Bentayga V8 became available to order in all markets in February 2018 in the current Bentley EU28 markets. These markets include Morocco, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Georgia, Israel, Armenia, Ukraine, Monaco, Switzerland, Turkey, Russia, and Belarus. It was made available to order in all other Bentley markets later in 2018.
