Bentley has unveiled the Bentayga Speed, a performance oriented version of its large SUV.

Under the bonnet is the same 6.0-litre W12 as the regular model, which now produces 467kW of power and 900Nm of torque. It can do 0-100km/h in 3.9 seconds, towards an increased top speed of 309km/h.

Apart from the extra power, the Speed is basically mechanically identical to the standard V12, with the only changes consisting of firmer dampers, retuned transmission settings and a louder exhaust.

Visually, the Bentayga Speed can be differentiated by a darkened grille, tinted lights. body colour accents, a large rear spoiler and 22-inch alloy wheels.

Inside, passengers are treated to suede trim, Speed badging and contrast stitching.

The Bentley Bentayga Speed will debut at the Geneva motor show, ahead of an on-sale date scheduled for later this year.
