Available only for a limited period from launch, this distinctive and versatile Bentley model perfectly captures the essence of the new Bentayga range, with the ideal balance of cutting-edge design and effortless performance.
Key to the new Bentayga is its strikingly dynamic look, which draws inspiration from the marque’s new design language, introduced by the third-generation Continental GT and all-new Flying Spur. Together, the three cars form a new family that are more visually connected than ever before. The bold styling offers an imposing road presence, with every panel at the front of the car redesigned for a cleaner, modern look.
The new Bentayga V8 First Edition features some of Bentley’s most desirable options as standard. These include Bentley Dynamic Ride, the pioneering active roll control system, Touring Specification, which brings together a range of technologies to enhance long range, high speed journeys, and the exquisite Mulliner Driving Specification. With the Mulliner Driving Specification, the First Edition sports 22” Black Painted and Diamond Turned Directional wheels as well as sports pedals to complete the ultimate driving experience.
This limited edition proudly displays its First Edition badging on both the exterior and interior of the car, complemented by illuminated treadplates featuring the ‘Bentley’ lettering.
The Bentayga’s highly praised interior has been significantly revised in the latest model. Among the major changes are a new centre fascia and steering wheel, new door trims and all-new seats – now available with ventilation in the rear of the five-seat cabin option. Passengers in the rear also enjoy significantly more space, with legroom increased by up to 100 mm depending on configuration.
The First Edition shows off these changes with various possible combinations of luxurious leather hides and veneer choices, allowing the unique contrast stitching on the diamond quilted areas to stand out. Customers can also opt to have the words ‘First Edition’ or the Bentley Wings embroidered on the seats as an added touch.
The new Bentayga is characterised by the introduction of a wealth of new, innovative, and technologically advanced features that take the onboard experience to a higher level.
While the new Bentayga offers two levels of audio systems for customers to customise from, the Naim for Bentley system is fitted as a standard for the First Edition. The Naim for Bentley system delivers 1,780 W of power via no less than 20 speakers including active bass speakers under both front seats, with super-tweeters located in each A and B-pillar for higher frequencies. Unmatched in the automotive sector, Naim for Bentley audio also offers eight listening modes, ranging from Digital Media to Classic. The Naim for Bentley speaker grilles are redesigned and now include an illuminated Naim badge.
The First Edition is no different when it comes to the new Bentayga’s unrivalled performance. Powered by Bentley’s proven 4.0-litre, 32-valve dual twin-scroll turbocharged V8 petrol engine, the new Bentayga combines immense power with impressive fuel economy. Mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox, the V8 offers supercar performance, developing 542 bhp (550 PS) and 770 Nm of torque, resulting in a top speed of 290 km/h and 0-100 km/h in 4.5 seconds.
The class-leading performance of the new Bentayga V8 is complemented by a range of 639 km, with CO2 emissions of 302 g/km. This refined efficiency (13.3 l/100 km combined) is partly due to the ability of the engine to de-activate four of its eight cylinders in suitable conditions, without compromising the drive.
