Mansory clearly thought the Bentayga facelift's styling changes were too subtle.
For the 2021 model year, the Bentley Bentayga received some subtle styling changes inspired by the Continental GT as part of a mid-cycle facelift. Clearly, Mansory didn't think the changes were dramatic enough, because the German aftermarket tuner has spiced up the luxury SUV with a carbon fiber body kit and a massive power upgrade.
To make the exterior even more extravagant, Mansory has fitted a widebody kit adding wider fenders, a roof-mounted rear spoiler, and side skirts. These components are all finished in black. Mansory has also fitted custom 23-inch wheels with contrasting red accents and a carbon hood with additional air outlets.
The result is one very sinister-looking Bentley Bentayga, although it looks more restrained than some of the tuner's other controversial creations. Inside, the modified Bentayga gets the full leather treatment with upholstery finished in black and red and features matching Mansory floor mats in black and red. Black carbon trim is also applied to the dashboard and doors.
Under the hood, Mansory has massaged the Bentayga's 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 to extract more power. In stock form, this unit generates 542 horsepower and 568 lb-ft of torque, which is a lot more power than most people will ever need in a luxury SUV.
However, thanks to new turbochargers, a new airbox, and a sport exhaust system with high-performance catalytic converters, Mansory's Bentayga produces a more substantial 750 hp and 752 lb-ft of torque. With this extra brawn, the Bantayga will accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds and max out at 196 mph.
This is a significant performance boost over the standard V8-powered Bentayga, which will do the same sprint in 4.4 seconds and hit a top speed of 180 mph. Mansory hasn't released any pricing details, but considering that the Bentayga starts at $177,000, these modifications certainly won't be cheap.
