Will hit showrooms in 2016.
It has yet to be spied in the revolutionary new camouflage Bentley recently revealed, but these latest spy shots of the marque’s highly-anticipated SUV show the yet-unnamed model is shaping up to a big hit for the British carmaker.

The luxury offroader will be underpinned by VW’s third-gen SUV platform that will also be shared with the Lamborghini Urus, next-gen Audi Q7 and VW Touareg. Bentley claims the SUV will be one of the fastest on the road with a 200 mph top speed. Despite the heavy body cladding, we can see the design of the 4x4 takes much from the controversial EXP 9 F concept. Bentley’s wireframe grille and twin round headlamps are also certain to feature on the finished article. Crewe has confirmed 3,500 units will be built annually, while Bentley says 2,000 pre-orders have already been taken. Codenamed Falcon, expect to see the Bentley SUV in showrooms in 2016.
