2021 Bentley Bentayga Speed

The Bentley Bentayga Speed Now Looks Like the Continental GT, still the fastest in the world

In production since late 2015, the Bentley Bentayga received its much deserved mid-cycle facelift in June 2020. Less than two months have passed and the British automaker revealed the updated Bentayga Speed model, which means the old Speed goes out of production after only a year on the market. Changes are similar to those seen on the regular model, while drivetrain specs remain unchanged. However, the Speed is now your only option if you want a Bentayga with a W-12, as the big mill is no longer available on the regular SUV.

2021 Bentley Bentayga

2021 Bentley Bentayga

The 2021 Bentayga comes with a host of changes on outside and inside the cabin, but things remain the same under the hood.

The declining sales of sedans across segments prompted every automaker to focus on SUVs. This was true even for the high-end automakers like Rolls Royce, Lamborghini, and Bentley. Surprisingly, despite the high price tags, their respective SUVs – the Cullinan, Urus, and Bentayga – became the best-sellers for the brand soon after they hit the market.

Bentley launched the Bentayga as a 2016 model year it is arguably the most important product for the brand today. After selling more than 200,000 examples since its inception four years back, Bentley has finally refreshed the Bentayga for the 2021 model year. Does it get any better?

After More Than A Decade, Bentley Ends Production Of The Mulsanne

After More Than A Decade, Bentley Ends Production Of The Mulsanne

It’s been an incredible ride for one of the world’s finest super luxury sedans

Production of the Bentley Mulsanne has finally ended, closing the chapter on the model’s 11-year run as the British automaker’s flagship model. Over 7,300 units of the Mulsanne were handbuilt at Bentley’s home in Crewe, Cheshire in the U.K., including the final production model, which also happens to be the final example of the limited-run Mulsanne 6.75 Edition by Mulliner. With the Mulsanne now set for retirement, the Flying Spur takes its place atop Bentley’s model hierarchy as the brand’s new flagship model. The Mulsanne occupied that spot for more than a decade, but now that the model is headed for the sunset, it’s high time to clear that spot for the next-in-line Flying Spur. The Mulsanne had a great run, but like all great runs, there’s always a finish line ahead, and the Mulsanne has finally crossed it.

Is The Global Situation Leading to a Boost In Driving Automotive Electrification? Bentley Thinks So

Is The Global Situation Leading to a Boost In Driving Automotive Electrification? Bentley Thinks So

Bentley thinks COVID-19 is driving automakers to adopt electrification quicker

Bentley CEO, Adrian Hallmark, spoke at the SMMT summit today, and the big takeaway from his talk is that the company is focusing on electrification more than ever as it continues to cut costs and focus on becoming “a sector defining, financially independent, and recession proof business.” This focus, however, will bring the death of gas-powered electric vehicles and a cut in workforce at a time when people need work the most. Is it justified, though?

This Rendering Shows What the Facelifted 2021 Bentley Bentayga Should Look Like

Taking the grille from the Bacalar and pasting it on the Bentayga actually works

Believe it or not, the Bentayga is Bentley’s best-selling model so it’s only natural for the British carmaker to allocate special attention to its luxury SUV, which is poised to see fruition once the facelifted Bentayga hits the market.

A couple of leaked images of the revised Bentayga pretty much ruined the element of surprise for Bentley as far as a reveal is concerned, but one visual artist believes the SUV would look better if it borrowed some styling cues from the Mulliner Bacalar drop-top.

Bentley Bentayga Hybrid Has Worse Highway Fuel Economy than the V-8 Model

It’s still the most efficient Bentayga in the city though

The EPA released mpg ratings for the 2020 Bentley Bentayga Hybrid recently and it seems that the plug-in hybrid is not as efficient as one might think. Although most hybrids return better mpg than regular gasoline models, the electrified Bentayga is actually rated below its V-8 counterpart when it comes to highway mpg. Specifically, the hybrid falls behind the non-hybrid V-8 by two mpg.

Bentley’s First Electric Car Could Be Largely Different Than What We’re Used To

Bentley is looking to make its first EV “brave” in terms of styling, but will it really be all that different?

After Bentley showcases the EXP 100 GT Concept last year as an electric car of the future, everyone has been wondering what Bentley will really do as it moves into the new land of electrification. The EXP 100 GT looked good and all, but it’s a little too modern, so to speak, in some areas. The good news is that we may actually find out exactly what Bentley’s first move into electrification will be, as a Bentley electric car could be launched as soon as 2025.

Do These Renderings Represent the Bentley of the Future?

Just imagine how much easier coachbuilding will be with interchangeable cabins

If Bentley and coachbuilding were people like you and me, they would be inseparable best friends. Take the Bentley Mulliner Bacalar or the Continental GT Convertible Equestrian, for example – they are overly luxurious and highly custom thanks to Bentley’s Mulliner division. These examples show just how far Bentley will go to tailor its vehicles to customer desire, and with the whole automotive world shifting like never before, what does the future hold for a company like Bentley? Well, modular coachbuilding could become the next big thing, and automotive designer Joseph Robinson drew up a project to represent just that.

Here's Why Bentley Killed off the Overly Luxurious Mulsanne Sedan And What's Coming Next

Here’s Why Bentley Killed off the Overly Luxurious Mulsanne Sedan And What’s Coming Next

You can write it off as another casualty of the SUV craze

There was a time when large, overly luxurious sedans were the cream of the crop for Bentley. Back when the Arnage was a thing, for example, Bentley was able to move 1,200 examples per year. It doesn’t sound like a lot when compared to mainstream vehicles, but for a company like Bentley that does so much by hand, that’s a lot. The Mulsanne was once a big deal too, but it has officially been canceled indefinitely with the Mulsanne 6.75 Edition – limited to just 30 examples – being the final Mulsanne to ever be produced. So, were sales of the Mulsanne really so bad Bentley had to cancel it altogether? Well, here’s the full story behind the demise of the Bentley Mulsanne.

2020 Bentley Mulsanne 6.75 Edition

2020 Bentley Mulsanne 6.75 Edition

The British automaker is saying goodbye to its flagship model the only way it knows how

Bentley is bidding adieu to the Mulsanne luxury sedan in the most fitting way possible. The British automaker is launching a special edition Mulsanne called the 6.75 Edition. Only 30 units of the Mulsanne 6.75 Edition and, in keeping with Bentley’s tradition of dressing up its special edition models to the nines, the limited-run Mulsanne comes with enough exclusive touches in the exterior and interior to justify its special edition billing.

Bentley hasn’t announced a release timetable for the Mulsanne 6.75, but with the Mulsanne’s production run ending this year, expect the 6.75 Edition to arrive within the year.

2020 Bentley Flying Spur First Edition

The first model of the special edition Flying Spur will be auctioned off for charity

The arrival of the 2020 Bentley Flying Spur is going to make a lot of bank accounts bleed, but just before the luxury sedan hits the market in full swing, Bentley’s rolling out the Flying Spur First Edition, a special edition model based on, well, the 2020 Flying Spur. The first example of the Flying Spur First Edition will not go on sale. Instead, it will be auctioned off at the Elton John AIDS Foundation’s inaugural ball, called the “Midsummer Party,” on July 24 at Jean Pogizzi’s Villa Dorane in Cap d’Antibes, a resort town between Cannes and Nice on the French Riviera. All proceeds from the auction will go to the EJAF. As for the rest of the Flying Spur First Editions, Bentley will only sell it in the first-year production of the Flying Spur. Best be quick if you want to get your hands on one.

The Third-generation Bentley Flying Spur is faster and flashier than ever, but not too flashy

Bentley has just pulled the digital wraps off the third incarnation of its Flying Spur sedan, the four-door sibling to the Continental GT coupe. This latest model has a more athletic looking body, emphasized by more muscular rear flanks. It’s also longer, more spacious and comfortable for passengers, and even better to drive than the model it replaces.

It features several technical innovations, like the first ever retractable Flying B hood mascot, but also rear-wheel steering and additional active and passive safety aids. Its 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12 engine has also been reworked to produce more power and torque.
