Bentley Bentayga SUV with less camouflage hits the Nürburgring [video]

It is very unlikely any future owners will take their upcoming Bentley Bentayga SUV to the extreme Nürburgring, but for testing purposes most cars are put through different conditions and Green Hell is perfect to test handling and braking at high speeds.

The Bentayga prototype in the video has lost some of its camouflage revealing more of the production details, but still hiding a good part of the head- and taillights.

Engine options for the first Bentley SUV will include a twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 engine as well as a new recently introduced twin-turbo 6.0-litre W12 TSI with 600bhp and 663 lb-ft of torque. A plug-in hybrid variant will follow sometimes in 2017.

Top speed for the W12 model is expected to be over 200mph and prices are rumoured to start above the £130k mark.
