2017 Bentley Bentayga Speed Spotted Testing

The high-performance 2017 Bentley Bentayga Speed variant has been spied testing for the first time in Europe.

Sporting larger air intakes, new lip spoilers on the front and rear bumpers, more prominent side skirts, bigger brake calipers with cross-drilled rotors, larger wheels with low profile tires and a bigger roof spoiler on the back, the Speed version of the Bentley Bentayga is expected to have as much as 700 hp and 663 lb-ft of torque.

Typically Bentley Speed models have around 30 hp and 37 lb-ft of torque more than their standard counterparts and the Bentayga won’t stray far from the formula.
