Bentley Will Pursue Electrification Over Autonomous Driving Technology 7

Posted by Michael Gauthier in Autonomous, Bentley, Bentley Bentayga, Electric Vehicles, PHEV, Reports on 12 7th, 2017


Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös recently revealed his company isn’t in a rush to offer semi-autonomous driving technology and it appears Bentley is taking a similar approach.

In an interview with The Drive, Bentley’s boss of the Americas said he hasn’t heard a customer describe autonomous driving technology as a must have feature. Mark Del Rosso went on to say “It has to become a want and a need and a desire” before the company decides add the technology to its vehicles.

Despite this, Bentley is starting to add high-tech driver assistance features to newer models such as the Continental GT. As the company noted at its unveiling, the GT comes with a new electric power-assisted steering system which enables the car to offer Active Lane Assist, Traffic Jam Assist and Park Assist.

While Bentley appears to be taking a cautious approach to autonomous driving technology, Del Rosso said it is embracing electrification. As the executive explained “We want to be the leader in luxury electrification” and “It’s not a matter of if, but when.”

Del Rosso confirmed we’ll get our first taste of an electrified Bentley in the form of the Bentayga plug-in hybrid. The company still debating if future models should be plug-in hybrids or pure electric vehicles but Del Rosso says it ultimately depends on what the customer wants.

Bentley Bentayga Field Sports By Mulliner Is The Ultimate Hunting Tool 22
Nov
Posted by Michael Gauthier in Bentley, Bentley Bentayga, Bentley Videos, video on 11 22nd, 2017


Bentley and luxury shotgun maker Purdey have teamed up to create the Bentayga Field Sports by Mulliner.

Billed as the “ultimate field sports lifestyle accessory,” the one-off model is essentially a standard Bentayga which has been equipped with a custom storage unit that is constructed out of leather and aluminum. The sliding storage unit features an assortment of different compartments which can hold shotgun shells, binoculars, and ear muffs. The compartment is lockable and also includes a humidor as well as several different drink holders and a flask.

Since the crossover was designed for hunting, the Bentayga Field Sports by Mulliner comes with a leather-trimmed case which can hold two shotguns. The case rests on top of the storage unit and fits in between the rear seats.

Since Purdey also specializes in high-end fashion, the model has an “exquisite” bag that holds a waistcoat, a waterproof cape, and a field coat. It also houses gaiters, shoes, and an overnight bag.

Bentley declined to mention performance specifications but the model likely features a twin-turbo 6.0-liter W12 engine that produces 600 hp (447 kW) and 663 lb-ft (900 Nm) of torque. It enables the standard Bentayga to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.0 seconds before hitting a top speed of 187 mph (301 km/h).

Is The Bentley Bentayga Really A More Extravagant Audi Q7? 5
Nov
Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in Bentley, Bentley Bentayga, Bentley Videos, reviews, video on 11 5th, 2017


Bentley broke the mold with the Bentayga, which is not only their first SUV, but also their first vehicle available with a diesel engine.

There are a few ‘buts’ that should be taken into consideration by potential customers, and one of them is the fact that it shares common elements with Audis, including the platform of the latest Q7. All that despite looking very expensive, both on the outside and in the cabin, as CarBuyer highlighted in their latest review.

However, that’s not necessarily a bad thing, because thanks to some clever modifications, joined by an air suspension and different driving modes, the Bentley Bentayga feels in its natural element, be it on a straight line or tackling corners. Moreover, it can also take users off-road, but they won’t feel as secure as they would be in a Range Rover, once the comfort of the asphalt ends. But we all know that it’s highly unlikely that Bentley’s SUV will ever go muddy.

Besides the 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12 engine that makes 608PS (600hp) and 900Nm (663lb-ft) of torque, the Bentley Bentayga can also be had with the 4.0-liter tri-turbo V8 diesel that powers the Audi SQ7. This version delivers 435PS (429hp) and 900Nm (663lb-ft) of torque, and it works together with the same 8-speed automatic gearbox.

Those with deep pockets looking for the ultimate luxury SUV can also choose between plenty of personalization items, starting with the generous color palette, going through the interior trim, and ending with the Breitling clock, which adds a staggering £115,000 ($151,448) to the final price.
