Burnt coffee, unlined trousers, post-Achtung Baby U2. Life is rife with mild disappointments.
With four fewer cylinders under its hood than its W-12 cousin, does the V-8 Bentley Bentayga deliver another?
Math with us here for a moment. A W-12 Bentayga with 600 horsepower lashes out at 60-mph runs in 4.0 seconds, hardly restrained by its 5,379-pound curb weight.
A 542-hp Bentayga V-8, a hundred-odd pounds trimmed from the weight over its nose at 5,264 pounds, covers the 60-mph dash in 4.4 seconds.
Translated into English, that means the Bentayga V-8 is barely slower, not enough to register through mortal sensory inputs. That credit-card-slim performance gap aside, it avoids gas-guzzler taxes, steers more finely, and makes nearly all the W-12’s lavish features available, if not standard.
So, about that possible letdown. “No” about covers it, don’t you think?
