A Flash of Inspiration
To create such a revolutionary car, Bentley’s designers were compelled to think in new ways. No strangers to creating modern design classics – many members of the Bentayga team worked on the iconic Continental GT – they were faced with creating Bentley’s very first SUV. Taller, tougher and more versatile than any grand tourer, it nevertheless had to bear the Bentley hallmarks of unrivalled luxury and performance. It had to drive like a Bentley, feel like a Bentley and above all, look like a Bentley. All in all, it was quite a brief.
So the design team began where they always begin. With light.
