Bentley Bentayga Speed Is The New Fastest SUV,But Lamborghini Urus Is Still Faster At 0-60mph
When the Bentley Bentayga debuted in 2016, the luxury SUV claimed the title of “world’s fastest SUV” with its 187-mph top speed. 12 months later, Lamborghini took that record away with the 189.5-mph Urus.
Now, it’s Bentley’s turn to claim the fastest luxury truck on the market. To reclaim the record,dissatisfied Bentley revised the Bentayga’s 6.0-liter W12 engine to boost the power by 26 hp to make 626 hp.
The results :An agile and more powerful Bentayga Speed, with a top speed of 190 miles per hour (306 km/h) and zero to 60mph in just 3.8 seconds (0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds).
The new top speed is 0.5 mph faster than the Lamborghini Urus , but still not enough to outsprint the world’s fastest non-SUV production cars like the companies 207 mph-Continental GT and the World’s Fastest Car, Koenigsegg’s Agera RS,with a 278mph top speed.
For comparison, the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 in the Urus puts out 641 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque while the Bentayga Speed’s 6.0-liter W12 engine makes 626 HP and 664 lb-ft of torque.
The sibling rivalry – Bentley Bentayga Speed and Lamborghini Urus are both owned by the Volkswagen Group – keeps getting hotter despite sharing the same platform . While the new Bentayga speed may be a little faster at the top end, Lamborghini Urus is still faster in a short race. The Luxury Bentley Bentayga Speed is capable of going 0-to-60 mph in 3.9 seconds, whereas the Urus super-sports SUV takes just 3.6 seconds.
