Bentley has revealed the Bentayga S, its most handling-focused Bentayga yet.

On the outside, the 'S' gets the black treatment to all exterior brightware, matched with black door mirrors and black-painted side sills.

The headlamps and elliptical tail lamps of the Bentayga S have also received a dark tint treatment, and the lower bumper grille is now finished in high gloss black.

A larger rear spoiler also rests at the rear of the Bentayga S, and is complemented by black painted, split oval, sport exhaust tailpipes, and unique exterior badging.

A new unique 22-inch wheel style is also offered, dramatic and mirrored from the centre line of the vehicle, ensuring that the spokes (appearing like 'scythes'), point in the same direction on both sides of the vehicle.

In the cabin the Bentayga S shares a fully digital driver's information panel with the Bentayga Speed, with pronounced dial graphics that take influence from high-end chronographs.

Under the bonnet, the Bentayga S features Bentley's renowned 4.0-litre, twin-scroll turbocharged V8 petrol engine, developing 542bhp and 770 Nm of torque. This will see the Bentayga S moving from zero to 100km/h in just 4.5 seconds. Top speed for the SUV meanwhile, is 290km/h.

The Bentayga S is also fitted with Bentley Dynamic Ride as standard. The system can react within 0.3 seconds with up to 1,300Nm of torque to counteract lateral rolling forces when cornering, ensuring maximum tyre contact to deliver class-leading cabin stability, ride comfort and exceptional handling.

An enhanced 'Sport' driving mode also offers improved steering feel, greater turn-in response and further reduced body-roll due to a 15% increase in air suspension damping and a unique Electronic Stability Control and Bentley Dynamic Ride tune.

A new sports exhaust is included as standard, with free-flowing primary and secondary pipes improving flow and combining with reduced perforations in the muffler to deliver enhanced character and volume.
