2021 Bentley Bentayga Hybrid
Ever since the uber-luxurious automakers ventured into high-riding vehicles, they’ve become less niche and more mainstream. Just like the Urus and the Cullinan have raked up big numbers for Lamborghini and Rolls-Royce respectively, the Bentayga has done that for Bentley. While you can maintain exclusivity and uniqueness at that price point, you still have to keep your finger on the pulse; the case in point here being the hybrid technology.
Bentley introduced the Bentayga Hybrid in 2020 and it soon became one of the most popular variants in the SUV’s lineup. Within a year, the British automaker has introduced the facelifted version that comes with refreshed styling inside out and updates on the tech front. The 2020 Bentayga Hybrid was the company’s first hybrid ever; so, does the 2021 model overcome any shortcomings?
2020 Bentley Flying Spur Reindeer Eight
No doubt, after using God-knows-how-many-sleighs and eight burned out reindeers since time immemorial, dear pal and Christmas superstar Santa Claus is turning to a more traditional mode of transportation this holiday season.
Santa is expected to ride in style behind the wheel of the Reindeer Eight, a customized version of the Bentley Flying Spur that the British luxury car manufacturer is showing off ahead of Santa’s journey around the world. Dressed as you’d expect for a Christmas-themed Bentley, the Reindeer Eight is a proper homage to the most wonderful time of the year and the man largely responsible for making our kids stay up late at night on Christmas Eve.
2021 Bentley Bentayga LWB
The 2021 Bentley Bentayga LWB is a long-wheelbase version of the already familiar Bentayga. Not yet confirmed by the British company, the SUV was spotted testing around and on the Nurburgring track and looks ready to go into production.
Compared to the regular Bentayga, the 2021 Bentayga LWB will feature a slightly longer wheelbase that will add a few extra inches of legroom for second-row seat passengers. When’s it going into production and what extras will it come with? Find out in the speculative review below.
2021 Bentley Flying Spur V8
The 2021 Bentley Flying Spur V8 is, as the name suggests, a V-8-powered version of the third-generation full-size sedan. Launched a year after the W-12 model broke cover, the 2021 Flying Spur V8 is essentially a slightly more dynamic and efficient alternative to the range-topping four-door. Does it have any features that make it stand out? How does the 4.0-liter V-8 compare to the much larger 6.0-liter W-12? Let’s find out in the review below.
2021 Bentley Continental GT Mulliner
The 2021 Bentley Continental GT Mulliner is a special-edition version of the Continental GT. As the name suggests, the coupe has been customized by Mulliner, the company’s bespoke division. Although it doesn’t look very different compared to the standard model, the Mulliner model stands out through numerous exclusive features inside and out. Designed for customers who want an even greater focus on customization, the 2021 Continental GT Mulliner is basically the range-topping version of the current luxury coupe. Engine choices are similar to the regular model, so you get to choose between the gasoline V-8 and W-12 mills. Let’s find out more about it in the review below.
2021 Bentley Bentayga Speed
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
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?
2020 Bentley Continental GT Convertible Equestrian Edition
Bentley is adding a new member to its growing lineup of exclusive bespoke creations. The newest addition is called the Continental GTC Equestrian Edition. Limited to just a single unit — yes, there’s only one in the world — the Continental GTC Equestrian Edition makes for a suitable follow-up to the outlandish Bacalar roadster that the boys from Crewe, England unveiled earlier this month. Though not as over-the-top as the Bacalar, the Continental GTC Equestrian Edition is a sultry one-off that draws inspiration from the popular hobby among the rich and famous. It features extraordinary and exclusive details that no other Continental GTC carries, justifying its billing as a true one-of-one creation. The Bentley Continental GTC Equestrian Edition is already spoken for, and, as you might expect, the one-off model was specially commissioned by a client who’s fond of thoroughbreds.
2021 Bentley Mulliner Bacalar
Add Bentley to the growing list of automakers that have taken the bold step of introducing a roofless speedster in their vehicle portfolio. The British automaker took to the Interwebs to introduce the Mulliner Bacalar, a $2-million open-top sports car that was named after a lake in Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula, features paint made using rice husk ash, and interior trim that includes wood accents taken from trees that fell way before Jesus was born. The Mulliner Bacalar is a showstopper in every sense of the word. It looks like one. It’s powered like one. Most importantly, it costs like one.
2020 Bentley Continental GT Mulliner Convertible
The 2020 Bentley Continental GT Mulliner Convertible is a special-edition version of the Continental GTC. As the name suggests, the drop-top has been customized by Mulliner, Bentley’s bespoke division, so it basically takes over as the range-topping model of the Continental GTC.
Although it doesn’t look very different compared to the standard model and it’s available with the same engines, the Mulliner stands out thanks to a handful of exclusive features. This model is basically dedicated to customers who want an even greater focus on customization and a car that stands out from the pack. Let’s find out what makes it special in the review below.
2020 Bentley Mulsanne 6.75 Edition
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.
2021 Bentley Flying Spur Speed
The 2021 Bentley Flying Spur Speed is an upcoming, higher performance version of the third-generation, 2020 Flying Spur sedan. The beefed-up four-door marks the return of the Speed-badged Flying Spur after eight years. Although the first-generation Flying Spur featured a Speed version, Bentley skipped the nameplate for the second-generation, opting for the "S" designation instead.
With the Flying Spur redesigned in 2019, the Speed will probably make a comeback in time for the 2021 model year. The badge will add sportier features on the outside, a few bespoke items on the inside, and a more powerful W-12 engine. Find out what we already know about this sedan in the speculative review below.
2020 Bentley Flying Spur First Edition
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.
2019 Bentley Continental GT Convertible Number 1 Edition
It’s been around eight months since the all-new Bentley Continental GT Convertible made its long-awaited debut. Enough time has passed for all of us to absorb what Bentley’s 626-horsepower, roofless, sporty grand tourer is all about. Enough time has also passed for Bentley to drop the first special edition model for the new Continental GT Convertible. And wouldn’t you know it, this special edition Continental GT Convertible is called…the Number 1 Edition. Lack of naming creativity notwithstanding, there is a reason why this special edition Continental GT Convertible is called the Number 1 Edition. As I mentioned, it’s the first SE variant of the all-new Continental GT Convertible. More than that, it pays tribute to a particular old-school Bentley race car: the legendary 1929 Bentley Number 1 Blower. Forget what I said, then, about this special edition’s nomenclature. Clearly, it means a lot more to Bentley than just a random number.
2020 Bentley Flying Spur
The 2020 Bentley Flying Spur is the third-generation version of the company’s full-size luxury sedan. The third-gen four-door replaces a six-year-old sedan in a segment that’s also contested by the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class and the Rolls-Royce Ghost.Heavily inspired by the Continental GT coupe, the 2020 Flying Spur boasts a sportier appearance on the outside, a more modern interior, and a revised W-12 engine.
Built on the same chassis as the Continental GT, the third-generation Flying Spur features a big amount of brand-new, state-of-the-art technology. The sedan is fitted with an active all-wheel-drive system, and it’s also the first Bentley to have four-wheel steering. The revised W-12 engine isn’t notably more powerful than the old unit, but it makes the Flying Spur the quickest sedan in its class and the only one to hit 60 mph in less than four seconds. Let’s find out more about that in the review below.
2019 Bentley Bentayga Hybrid
The 2019 Bentley Bentayga Hybrid is the electrified version of the company’s first SUV. It’s also Bentley’s first hybrid ever, as well as the world’s first luxury SUV with an electric motor. The Bentayga Hybrid joins the original 2017 Bentayga with the W-12 engine that Bentley unveiled in 2015, as well as the V-8 and diesel variants that the British firm launched since 2017.
The Bentayga Hybrid is virtually identical to the regular SUV inside and out. The exterior features an additional "fuel" cap for the plug-in socket, while the interior includes new tech and a revised infotainment system for hybrid duty. Things are notably different under the skin though, where the familiar W-12 and V-8 engines were replaced with a V-6 and an electric motor. The layout is similar to that in the Porsche Panamera E-Hybrid. Let’s find out more about this electrified SUV in the review below.
2019 Bentley Bentayga V8 Design Series
The Bentley Bentayga V8 Design Series is a special-edition version of the luxury SUV. As an appearance package, Design Series combined new features designed by the Mulliner division with a range of existing options. Bentley says it’s "a contemporary styled and visually dynamic version of the world’s most luxurious SUV," although the Design Series isn’t a major departure from the standard Bentayga.
Although the British SUV is available with two gasoline engine, a diesel, and a hybrid, the Design Series is restricted to just one drivetrain. As the name suggests, it only comes with the 4.0-liter V-8, which is the entry-level model in terms of pricing. There’s no word as to how many will be built, but it probably won’t be around for too long.
