As everyone is trying to offer an alternative for those in search of a premium SUV, Bentley could not wait anymore. The British manufacturer is going to break tradition with its first SUV in the history, already anticipated by the 9F Concept, two years ago.
The production version of the SUV is getting closer and closer to production. No wonder that Bentley unveiled a teaser video, meant to get everyone`s attention. The short movie does not show to much of the future design. But we can easy realise that the new SUV is going to borrow the current lines of the brand.
The front fascia will copy that of the current Continental GT, while the back will take as a full inspiration from the Flyin Spur. The SUV will also have a lowered roof line.
Bentley promises that its SUV will be “the “world’s most powerful and luxurious SUV with new standards in bespoke craftsmanship and performance.”
No word on the engine, but we can see the twin+turbo 4.0 liter V8, delivering 500 hp and 660 Nm. Along this version, the Bentley SUV will have also a plug-in hybrid version, planned to debut in 2017.
