Bentley Motors has announces
full details of the first diesel model in the iconic British brand’s history –
the Bentayga Diesel. At the heart of the world's fastest and most powerful
luxury diesel SUV is an all-new, technologically advanced, triple-charged, 4.0-litre,
32-valve V8 engine. Developing 429 bhp and 900 Nm of torque, the Bentayga
Diesel hits a top speed of 270 km/h and can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.8
Bentley’s Crewe-based engineers
have developed a V8 powertrain to deliver an authentic Bentley driving
experience. Peak torque is available from very early in the rev range (just
1,000 rpm), which makes progress in the Bentayga Diesel truly effortless.
New clean technology gives the
Bentayga Diesel the lowest CO2 emissions of any Bentley, as well as a range of
over 1,000 km– allowing owners to, for example, drive from London to Verbier,
Bordeaux or the Scottish Highlands on a single tank.
Inside, the Bentayga Diesel
retains the innovative features, advanced technologies and handcrafted luxury
for which the Bentley Bentayga is renowned.
Customer deliveries will begin
in Europe early next year, with entry into Russia, South Africa, Australia, New
Zealand and Taiwan planned across the rest of 2017.
The Bentayga Diesel retains
the dynamic performance of the Bentayga W12, while introducing clean
technologies and enhanced range.
The next-generation 4.0-litre
V8 engine is mated to a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission.
Variable-geometry, sequential twin-scroll turbochargers are powered by the
exhaust gases, while a third electric supercharger – powered by Bentley’s
innovative 48V system – spools up within 30 microseconds to eliminate turbo
lag. The effect is effortless, seamless power delivery across the entire
engine-speed range – the quintessential Bentley driving experience.
An immense amount of torque is
available from very low speeds, with peak torque achieved from just 1,000 rpm,
for both seamless on-road performance and exemplary off-roading ability. The
immediate flow of power complements the traditional, class-leading refinement
and performance customers have come to expect.
The bespoke exhaust system has
been acoustically engineered to be as quiet and refined as possible.
The addition of Selective
Catalytic Reduction contributes to lower nitrous oxides. Combined with
Bentley’s stop-start system; CO2 emissions of 210 g/km; and a range of over
1,000 km between fuel stops, this technology puts the Bentayga Diesel at the
forefront of advanced engine efficiency.
