The Bentley Bentayga Luxury SUV Gets Dazzling ‘V8 Design Series’ Upgrades

Pure decadence.

The Bentley Bentayga just got an eye-catching makeover to match its abundant levels of luxury and performance. 

The Bentley Bentayga V8 Design Series has the same powertrain and performance specs we put to the test in when we drove the posh off-roader in Iceland, plus numerous aesthetic upgrades. 


A body-colored bumper spruces up the front end, while twin gloss black tailpipes ensures passersby can hear the growl of the formidable 542-horsepower V8 under the hood. 

But the exterior’s coolest newest new feature is the metallic self-leveling “B” badge that sits in the center of each metallic alloy wheel. Even if you’re sprinting to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds, the logo remains perfectly oriented.

The story continues on the interior. Bentley’s black leather is offered with one of four complementary color themes: red, orange, white or blue. Additionally, a series-exclusive carbon fiber diamond quilt pattern highlights doors and dashboard. 


“Bentley” illuminated floor mats and drilled alloy sport pedals come standard. A diamond-jeweled Breitling clock in the center of the dash rounds out the elegant cabin.


Prices haven’t been publicly revealed, but expect the V8 Design Series to cost at least a little more than the standard $200,000 Bentayga.
