The mighty Bentley Bentayga Speed receives new tech tweaks

The British SUV clocks 0-62mph in just 3.9 seconds on the way to a 190mph (306km/h) top speed whereas the Lamborghini Urus only manages 305km/h. The cultured Bentley also continues to use the 6.0-litre W12 engine with 626bhp which if we are honest, it is more than enough for a suited SUV.There’s a new ‘sail’ mode, which is the Bentley land yacht’s version of coasting. When the eight-speed auto is in fifth or above, a torque converter kicks in to allow freewheeling when you take your foot off the accelerator (on a flat road). That automatic gearbox is also calibrated especially for the Speed, with the addition of a ‘Sport’ mode that seems to be a misfit in a Bentley. The mountain of power also calls for huge brakes, and you can even spec carbon-ceramic ones capable of withstanding 1000 degrees. On top of that, the driver can control the air suspension, engine response and exhaust note.One can also spot the Speed by its tinted light clusters, sporty bumpers and a boot spoiler that wouldn’t look out of place on the most outlandish hot hatches. It rides on 22-inch wheels and gets a few Speed badges, just so that everyone knows that this isn’t just a boring Bentley. There are over 60 paint colours with the option of two-tone paint.
