The story so far

When first tasked with designing the Bentayga, the team at Bentley were faced with more than just creating a new car. Their challenge was to elevate the very concept of the SUV to powerful, luxurious new heights. To create a car that would cause the world to see the SUV sector through entirely new eyes.

The journey of the Bentayga’s design, crafting and refinement has been a long one, but it is a process now close to completion. To see how the story unfolded, read on.

Moment of Creation

Throughout 2013 and 2014, work continued. Sketches became 3D wireframes, which in turn were sculpted in clay. But only when the clay model was painted did the Bentley Bentayga finally start to come to life.

The new Bentley Bentayga - a symphony of light

Symphony of Light

What we see doesn’t always truly represent the form before us – especially when its surface is reflective.  We don't see lines, we see light.

The new Bentley Bentayga - a different kind of disguise.

Designed to Deceive

Camouflage coverings distort the shape of prototype cars, concealing their true form from prying eyes. A revolutionary vehicle warrants a revolutionary approach to camouflage.


We don't see terrain. We see texture.

The new Bentley SUV delivers complete confidence – whatever the driving conditions. In this serene space, you can look beyond the topography of the world outside to the fine and beautiful details of the landscape.
