    The Bentley SUV is coming, officially confirmed

    Well, thoughts?

    While it was never explicitly said that the new Bentley SUV would use 12-cylinder power, we always just assumed it would be. I mean, c'mon, this is Bentley! At this point in time, despite having a fuel-saving V8 on the horizon and an insane twin-tubo V8 in the Mulsanne , Bentley is identified by the W12 in the way that a Corvette is by a pushrod V8.

    Bentley CEO Wolfgang Durheimer knows this, too, and he knows how important big numbers are to luxury buyers. "We will be first to use a 12-cylinder petrol engine in a luxury SUV. I like this idea; it makes clear whose car is the boss," said Durheimer to AutoCar.
    This engine would be in addition to the diesel V12 that Bentley is planning for a few years after launch.
    "Ninety-nine per cent of Bentley owners also own an SUV. I am absolutely sure the demand is there," Durheimer concluded. "Absolutely thousands of premium SUVs have been sold -- Cayennes, Range Rovers, Q7s and so on -- but nobody has given those owners the chance to upgrade. We will."

    Looks a bit like the Cayenne, but this one is even more fail on the looks department. All they did was copy WV and Porsche, and paste a Bentley front end.

    Wow talking about whoring out a brand. And for such a hideous suv no less, either way I wouldn't pay 50% of what those bentley's cost but damn.

    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    So is that what it would look like if I grafted a Continental GT bumper cover to a Touereg? Don't get me wrong a Touereg is a damn great vehicle but Bentley should have made the car look more unique. I assume they are platform sharring with the Touereg and Cayanne since Bentley is part of VW, right?

    I really hope this SUV is a lot cheaper than their Sedans and Coupes, if it shares the wv platforms....

    Continental Flying Spour is actually a Pheaton W12 with a lot more leather and two extra turbos.
