Bentley introduces V8 engine to Bentayga line-up

Bentley Bentayga V8

Since its introduction, the Bentley Bentayga has helped define the luxury SUV segment, offering customers the ultimate Grand Touring experience in class and comfort.

The Bentley Bentayga SUV gets a 4.0 litre V8 with 542bhp as the Bentayga V8 arrives to offer a more "affordable" entry-level alternative to the W12 Bentayga. The brand new engine is complemented by two quad tailpipes that Bentley says will emit that distinct V-8 burble that's beloved by vehicle enthusiasts. Partly, that's because the eight-cylinder model is the lightest of the range.

Bentley hasn't announced availability but look for the Bentayga V8 to make its way into showrooms this spring.

Tucked behind the standard 21in wheels, these massive brakes help produce a maximum braking torque of 6,000Nm. This model will also offer optional carbon-ceramic brakes that the company calls "the largest and most powerful ever fitted to a Bentley, and the largest front brake system available on any production auto". The 10-piston front brakes measure 440mm in diameter, which is a 40mm increase on the Bentayga's standard steel brakes, the rear carbon ceramic brakes measure 370mm.

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. It also uses adaptive air suspension that can be calibrated depending on the driving conditions and a drive dynamic system that can come with the optional all-terrain system.

Walt Disney (NYSE:DIS) Cut to Hold at Vetr
The legal version of this report can be read at https://weekherald.com/2018/01/12/walt-disney-dis-lowered-to-hold-at-vetr.html. After $0.15 actual EPS reported by Kinder Morgan, Inc. for the previous quarter, Wall Street now forecasts 20.00% EPS growth.

Up to eight modes (four on- and four off-road) are available, allowing drivers to select the ideal dynamic set-up for any surface or road condition at the turn of a dial.

Bentayga V8 models should get a drop in curb weight over the W12 model, allowing the Bentayga to dance a little easier in traffic.

High 2, for example, can be manually selected when tackling more severe off-road surfaces.

Revealed on Friday ahead of a likely debut at next week's 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, the Bentayga V8 sports a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 delivering 550 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque.

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. The same four, five or seven-seat layout as other models can be specified, along with a near-endless combination of trim materials and high-quality leathers.
