Bentley has taken the wraps off the Bentayga Styling Specification which brings some exterior tweaks compared to the standard version of the company’s first ever SUV. It’s one of the six cosmetic packages available for the model and as you can see this one is addressed to those who would rather have a sportier look for their very expensive high-riding model from Crewe.

It encompasses several body bits and pieces made from carbon fiber, such as fender vents, the upper section of the mirrors, side vents and at the back on the rear spoiler. The latter is actually very different compared to the standard version and aside from featuring carbon fiber it also has a modified shape which according to Bentley is the result of aerodynamic tweaking as they wanted to boost the Bentayga’s downforce.

Interestingly, the British luxury marque wants the Bentayga to change the paradigm of a high-end four-door from traditional luxury to modern luxury. In other words, while in previous models the owner would sit in the back, with the SUV they want the person who bought the car to actually drive it.

Those who are not impressed with this styling kit should know that Bentley through the voice of its engineering boss Rolf Frech has already announced plans for a beefier version which will likely be called the Bentayga Speed. It will use an upgraded version of the newly developed TSI 6.0-liter W12 twin-turbocharged engine that in the standard model generates an already very impressive 608 bhp and a maximum torque of 900 Nm.

The stronger version will of course be quicker than the standard Bentayga which covers the 0-100 kmph in just 4 seconds and can hit a top speed of 301 kmph, thus effectively making it the fastest SUV ever produced.

At the other end of the spectrum, there’s going to be a more economical plug-in hybrid derivative programmed to come out sometime in 2017 and it will be Bentley’s first ever model to have a hybrid powertrain.
