What we have here is a beast of a vehicle. This is not just an ordinary Bentley Bentayga – it’s allegedly the higher-performing Speed version. As is the norm for Bentley’s Speed models, the mule here features a front splitter, matched with aerodynamic side skirts and a reworked rear diffuser. There’s a wing on top too.

One can easily spot the huge alloy wheels and the high performance braking system behind them too. The Bentayga Speed will have an even more powerful version of the twin-turbo 6.0 litre W12 TSI engine, which currently makes 635 PS and 820 Nm of torque in its most potent form (in the Continental GT Speed).

The Bentley Bentayga is expected to debut later this year, in “standard” form first – reports are already hinting at a Frankfurt reveal in September. Sales of the luxury SUV are expected to commence in 2016.
