BENTLEY BAHRAIN ANNOUNCES THE ARRIVAL OF ALL-NEW ‘BENTAYGA S’
Manama, 1st June 2022: Bentley Bahrain unveiled today the new Bentayga S at a grand ceremony at The Royal Golf Club, Riffa Views, Bahrain. The unveiling was attended by distinguished guests, management and teams from Bentley Motors, Bentley enthusiasts, and members of the press.
With striking design cues and unique detailing, the Bentayga S is the latest version of Bentley’s benchmark, go-anywhere luxury SUV, designed and engineered in the UK and manufactured in Bentley’s carbon-neutral factory in Crewe.
For the first time since the launch of Bentayga in 2015, an S version is now available – reflecting feedback from the huge number of customers that enjoy the dynamic performance of their Bentayga on-road. Building on Bentley’s established ‘S’ brand, the new enhanced sports Bentayga provides an even more engaging drive, with Bentley Dynamic Ride active anti-roll control fitted as standard and an enhanced Sports chassis mode. A 15 per cent increase in damping stiffens the chassis and provides a platform for a more dynamic SPORT mode ESC tune.
Bentayga S also features a revised visual presence through the distinctive addition of black details, and a more sporting soundtrack courtesy of a newly designed, free-flowing sports exhaust – both of which increase the Bentayga’s already imposing presence on the road.01-06-2022
