Although the Bentley Bentayga is already the most powerful SUV in production, even more ponies are coming to the high-end luxury model.
Speaking with Auto Express, Bentley CEO Wolfgang Dürheimer confirmed that a Bentayga Speed model is coming, likely to arrive packing at least 650 horsepower.
Under the hood, all 650 hp will still come from a 6.0-liter W12 engine like in the standard model, tuned to increase output. In other Bentley Speed models, horsepower increases range from 25 hp to 66 hp, so a boost of 50 hp is right in the ball park.
These upgrades will surely make the big SUV capable of cracking its current 0 to 60 mph time of 4 seconds.
Pricing for the Speed model will likely increase by about $20,000, taking the price tag to around $250,000.
