This stuff can only happen in China.
The Bentley Bentayga SUV is set to officially debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, but a 1:18 scale model of the vehicle has just leaked in China. Seriously. According to Car News China, automakers get Chinese toy makers to create models of new vehicles to give out to the media. It looks like the toy maker that was contracted to make this Bentayga couldn’t keep it a secret. These aren’t the best pictures, but they’re an exactly model of what the SUV will look like.
The headlights and grille look similar to those found on the Flying Spur. There’s a lot of shiny chrome throughout the entire vehicle including on the doors, around the windows and on the rear bumper. There’s a double sunroof and a wide D-pillar with chrome roof rails, which are predominantly for show and not for functionality.The large SUV is rumored to have three engines to choose from, including a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8, 6.0-liter W12 and 4.2-liter turbocharged V8 diesel. Apparently the W12 will produce around 567 hp and make the Bentayga the fastest SUV in the world. We’re not holding our breath over that but are happy to see that Bentley scrapped the EXP 9 F concept.
