New long-wheelbase Bentley Bentayga set for 10 May reveal

Category : ,

Bentley has revealed a second teaser image of the fifth model to join its luxury line-up, which could be a long-wheelbase version of the Bentaya SUV. 

The new car will launch on 10 May, and the firm says it will “sit in sumptuous comfort at the pinnacle of its range”. The new teaser certainly suggests this will be the case, previewing optional ‘Airline Seats’ that feature 22-way adjustment, posture support with 177 pressure points, and automatic heating and ventilation functions. 

The prestige UK brand considers the Continental GT and Continental GT Convertible to be separate models, so alongside the Bentayga and the Flying Spur, the new model could replace the firm’s old Mulsanne as an ultra-luxurious flagship, plugging a gap in the range that has been vacant for some time.

It’s possible that, given the popularity of its Bentayga SUV (which accounted for 40 per cent of the luxury manufacturer’s sales in 2021), the new car could be based on this vehicle.

The previous teaser image did not give much away, but in dim purple light we could make out some interior design elements. The diamond-shaped lights are reminiscent of the quilted stitching that Bentley interiors often feature. 

The ‘Long-Awaited’ text over the teaser image could be a subtle hint at a stretched SUV model – adding substance to separate reports that a new long-wheelbase Bentayga will join the range in 2022.

As for powertrains, Bentley’s current range of models offer a 6.0-litre twin-turbocharged W12, a 4.0-litre V8 and a 3.0-litre turbocharged hybrid, and it’s possible the new car could be available with a choice of all three engines.

Bentley claims its new car will have “a breadth of capabilities beyond anything previously offered”, stating that “The company’s designers, engineers and craftspeople have gone to new lengths to combine luxury, technology and performance in a way that only Bentley can deliver.” With this in mind, the new car’s price could start from more than £200,000.
