Bentley's Bentayga Speed boasts a top speed of 190mph and 0-62mph acceleration time of 3.9 seconds

Bentley has announced what it calls the "world's fastest, most luxurious SUV:" the Bentayga Speed.

Naturally, the 6.0 litre twin-turbo W12 engine is the star of this Speed-styled Bentayga; this model brings the top speed up to 190mph from the standard Bentayga's 187mph—now just barely faster than the Lamborghini Urus by 0.5mph—while producing 626hp and 662lb.-ft of torque to all four wheels. It can sprint from 0mph to 62mph in 3.9 seconds while the Continental GT coupé makes the same run in 3.7 seconds.

Naturally with that speed and power came a new set of lightweight but heavy-duty carbon ceramic brakes which are "the largest and most powerful ever fitted to a Bentley." It's controlled by an eight-speed transmission and four driving modes including a Sport mode to enhance engine, transmission, and suspension response for a "more dynamic and engaging drive." A 48V electric roll control system counteracts lateral rolling forces to ensure that the tires stay on the ground, and handling is top-notch.
