Remco Meulendijk, the independent artist of RM Design from the Netherlands has released a new rendering, which portrays the exterior of cross-coupe Bentayga Coupe by the British luxury automaker Bentley. Reportedly, the brand is working on something that will be even more ludicrous and the model unofficially known as “Bentayga Coupe” in the world market will be in direct competition with the Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 Coupe and the BMW X6 M.
The renders from RM Design shows the cross-coupe with a more raked roofline giving a touch of the coupe. Regardless of the more dynamic profile, this model cannot be expected to look very sleek and not couldn’t find that sporty appearance too. Thanks to some carbon fibre bits and pieces, the coupe version will be lighter scaling well over 4,409 lbs (2,000 kg) than the regular Bentayga weighing 5,340 lbs (2,422 kg).
Talking about the engine, it is expected to be a beefier iteration of the all-new twin-turbo W12 6.0-litre producing an immense 600 HP of power and 900 Nm in the regular model, so we can say the coupe will have a lot more than that. As we know, the addition of carbon fibre components and an W12 engine significantly improve performance compared to the standard Bentayga. The standard model does 0-100 kmph in just 4.1 second and tops out at 187 mph (301 km/h), but the Coupe will likely drop under the 4-second mark and could hit a mark of 200-mph tops.
The “Bentayga Coupe” will apparently be unveiled as a concept next year in Geneva, probably to measure some feedback and if the reaction will be positive, it might go in to production line and hit dealerships as early as 2017.
