The new Bentley Bentayga V8, the all-new Continental GT and the Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase are heading to the 2018 Beijing Auto Show. The latest version of Bentley’s exquisite SUV combines limousine-like refinement with exceptional performance and sporting character, and will be showcased in China for the first time. The all-new Continental GT is designed, engineered and handcrafted in Britain, and features the highest levels of attention to detail, artistry and cutting-edge technology. The Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase is created for patrons with a preference for being driven, with the extended wheelbase of 250 mm being entirely to the benefit of the rear-seat passengers’ legroom.
The Beijing Auto Show is one of the leading motor shows in China. It takes place bi-annually in Beijing and trades places on the calendar every second year with the Shanghai Motor Show. It takes place from 25th of April until the 4th of May 2018.
Powered by a 4.0-litre, twin-turbocharged petrol engine, the new Bentley Bentayga V8 combines exquisite luxury with power, usability and extensive sporting ability. The most performance-orientated version to date can sprint from 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.5 seconds), and on to a top speed of 180 mph (290 km/h). Such immense power doesn’t compromise efficiency either – the new-generation engine helps give the Bentayga V8 a range of 464 miles (746 km), with CO2 emissions of 260 g/km.
The new model also benefits from a characteristic V8 burble, stylish twin-quad exhaust pipes and optional carbon-ceramic brakes. These features combine to reveal even more of the Bentayga V8’s sporting nature, with responsive performance fully customised by the driver through Bentley’s Drive Dynamics system.
Inside, the Bentayga V8 showcases the Bentley tradition of intricate detailing and fine, handcrafted precision using authentic materials. Among the three innovative, new interior options is a high-gloss carbon-fibre finish for the first time. A wood and hide trimmed steering wheel option is also a first. A suite of state-of-the-art driver assistance systems and infotainment features designed to enhance safety, comfort and convenience make the Bentayga V8 an innovative, advanced and connected luxury SUV.
Bentayga V8 is also available with Bentley Dynamic Ride – the world’s first electric active roll control technology. The system instantly counteracts lateral rolling forces when cornering, ensuring maximum tyre contact. This delivers class-leading cabin stability, ride comfort and handling. Optional carbon-ceramic brakes are the world’s largest front brake system.
