Bentley Bentayga V8 arrives with 542bhp 4.0 litre V8

Bentley introduces V8 engine to Bentayga line-up

At the heart of the latest Bentayga model is a new-generation 4.0-litre, twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine which combines enormous power with impressive fuel efficiency.

But "lower" in this context is relative, as the V8 Bentayga is hardly short on get up and go, with 542bhp and 568lb/ft of torque promising 0-62mph in 4.5 seconds and on to a top speed of 180mph.

Where you'll notice more difference is in economy (unless you use the Bentayga performance to the max) with official economy of 24.8mpg, although real-world will probably be mid to high teens.

The generous output allows the Bentayga V8 to cover the 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint in 4.5 seconds, making it just 0.4 seconds slower than the Bentayga W12. A start-stop system helps the large SUV achieve these figures, as does a cylinder deactivation system, which switches four of the V8's cylinders off in certain conditions. According to the automaker, these are the largest brake discs to ever be installed in a Bentley and the largest front brake system available on any production vehicle, measuring 440 mm with ten-piston calipers at the front and 370 mm at the back.

The Bentayga V8's sporty nature is underlined by the inclusion of Bentley Dynamic Ride, a system that minimises body roll in corners, along with advanced stability and traction controls systems.

Noire on the platform and 2015's smash indie hit Rocket League also came to the platform past year with cross-play support. For the Nintendo Switch version of Dark Souls: Remastered , you only find this so far at GameStop.com , also for $39.99.

Bentley just unveiled the 2019 Bentayga V8 performance SUV Friday. There are optional premium sound system available as well with 18 speakers for a total of 1950watts.

Bentley also offers a Bentayga Diesel (also V-8-powered) outside the United States and this model has 429 hp and 664 lb-ft, which sees it hit 60 miles per hour in 4.6 seconds and top out at 168 miles per hour.

Bentley's standard infotainment system is also fitted, featuring an 8in touchscreen, 60-gigabyte hard drive, and for passengers in the rear there's a 10.2in Android tablet device with 4G WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity. It also offers an all-new 22-inch five-spoke wheel with black painted and polished finish.

A Bentley isn't complete without a deeply luxurious interior and the Bentayga V8 is no exception.

Inside, customers can choose a four, five or even seven-seat configuration for ultimate versatility, and driver aids include adaptive cruise control, traffic sign recognition and park assist, along with infrared night vision and a head-up display. On the inside, however, there are some additions over the W12 such as glossy carbon fibre trims all around, wooden insert on steering wheel and the first-ever cricket-ball leather upholstery.
