Bentley is without a doubt one of the best car manufacturers of our time, having given us some beautiful chauffeur and sports cars during their century in business. However, it seems the nation has seen their attention drawn to their 190mph Bentley Bentayga Speed; a car that has been dubbed ‘the world’s fastest SUV’.
Overtaking the Lamborghini Urus with a slight advantage of 0.6mph, the Bentayga Speed is an upgraded version of the standard Bentayga.
Set to hit our roads in 2020, the car has been tweaked slightly to give it an extra edge. This includes a 6.0-liter W-12 engine, offering 626 of horsepower. Bentley has also reworked the Bentayga’s suspension system, added a new exhaust tune AND introduced some pretty good-looking 22-inch wheels.
While both created by the Volkswagen Group, rumours suggest that the Lamborghini Urus will now be looking at making tweaks to regain its title as the fastest SUV in the market.
But, Bentley and Lamborghinis are not the only brands to be focused heavily on the luxury SUV market. Aston Marten, Ferrari, McLaren and Rolls Royce are all making it their mission to excel in this niche.
However, one luxury SUV that they will all find hard to contend with is the Rolls Royce Cullinan; the first SUV to come from the British carmakers. Despite battling the woes of Brexit, it has been reported that Rolls Royce are struggling to cater to the thousands of calls for the car, unable to get the bespoke-made cars off of the production line in time. While needing to accelerate their production times, this is not a bad position to be in. This is especially the case when considering each vehicle is worth a quarter of a million pounds!
