New Bentley Bentayga V8 Design Series announced

Bentley has revealed a special edition version of its V8 SUV, intended to inject a bit of sporting intent into the Bentayga

Bentley has unveiled a special edition variant of the Bentayga V8. Called the Design Series, it adds a reworked, customisable interior and a range of exterior updates. Naturally, prices haven’t been announced, but we’re expecting it’ll be a few thousand pounds north of the standard car’s £136,200 price-tag.

The most noticeable changes are found in the cabin. The Bentayga V8 Design Series gets a fresh fascia finished in a brand new carbon fibre weave, specifically developed for the model. A diamond-studded Breitling clock and illuminated tread plates are equipped. It also receives reupholstered seats, trimmed in black leather, with a choice of four accent colours.

Bentley’s exterior revisions are more subtle, with the firm’s ‘Blackline’ package included as standard. This adds a body-coloured front apron, twin gloss black exhaust tips, an enamel “Design Series” badge and black replacements for every piece of brightware. It also gets a fresh set of seven-spoke alloys, with new Mulliner self-levelling wheel badges.

Like the standard entry-level Bentayga, the Design Series is powered by Bentley’s 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8, producing 545bhp and 770Nm of torque. Bentley claims identical performance figures, with a 0–62mph sprint of 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 180mph. It should be as thirsty on fuel, too, with claimed figures of 21.7mpg.

Other standard kit includes LED headlights, dark-tinted taillights, a panoramic roof, an electronic differential lock, a choice of four customisable drive modes, a valved exhaust system, and height-adjustable, and adaptive air suspension.
