The Mulliner design team created a bespoke space-themed Bentayga Speed for one of Bentley Orlando‘s customers. The exterior paint shade of Cypress (the dark metallic grey with subtle green undertones) creates a dark, stone-like exterior, accented with Blackline Specification – replacing all exterior brightware with gloss black version. Orange Flame accents to the gloss carbon fibre Styling Specification are inspired by comet dust trails and add a bright contrast to the Cypress paintwork.
Inside, the illuminated treadplates depict planets orbiting a solar system. The Orange bezels surrounding the Galaxy Stone fascias set into the dashboard and mirrored on the door waistrails. The smooth bright surfaces contrast the dark grey tactile stone.
The cabin is trimmed in Beluga and Porpoise and features the ‘Naim for Bentley’ sound system with unique satin black speaker grilles. You can also see bespoke fluting in the door recesses radiating from the bright orange Bentley seat emblem to the outer edges of the shoulder area. Orange micro piping trails the seat edges and encircles the floor mats. The center spoke of the steering wheel and gear lever are the brightest areas within the interior.
The bespoke space-themed Bentayga Speed is fitted with the 6.0-liter W12 twin-turbocharged engine that delivers a peak power of 635 PS (626 bhp). It produces 900 Nm (664 lb.ft) of torque, available as a plateau from 1,500 rpm to 5,000 rpm. The maximum speed is 190 mph (306 km/h), while the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint is delivered in 3.9 seconds.
The Bentayga Speed is equipped with four on-road Drive Dynamics modes: Comfort at one extreme, Sport at the other and with Bentley mode – the balanced recommendation of Bentley’s chassis team in Crewe – alongside a Custom mode for customers who want to create their own driving set-up.
The Sport mode has been fine-tuned to boost response from the W12 engine and the eight-speed automatic transmission, together with the air suspension system and Bentley Dynamic Ride. Bentley Dynamic Ride is the world’s first electric active roll control technology that uses an unrivaled 48V system. This system instantly counteracts lateral rolling forces when cornering and ensures maximum tire contact to deliver class-leading cabin stability, ride comfort and exceptional handling.
The Bentayga Speed’s optional carbon-ceramic brakes are the largest and most powerful brakes available from Bentley, with a maximum braking torque of 6,000 Nm and engineered to withstand temperatures up to 1,000 °C.
