People love the Bentley Bentayga a lot. More than you'd expect, even. It's quickly become the British luxury brand's best-selling vehicle by far. If anything, that trend is poised to accelerate, as Bentley has already announced that a hybrid model is on the way to join the 12-cylinder model. What if you don't want a thirsty, 600+ horsepower twin-turbo 12 or a fancy hybrid? Where is your Goldilocks model? Bentley hasn't forgotten about you, oh middle-of-the-road ultra-rich person, because now the company has revealed it will offer a V8.
The twin-turbocharged V8 that Bentley is putting in the Bentayga sounds like a real peach of an engine. It displaces just 4.0 liters, but thanks to twin hot-vee turbos, it pumps out 542 horsepower and 568 pounds-feet of torque, which means it shouldn't be far off the W12's pace. It's also good for a 0-60 time of just 4.4 seconds and a top speed of 180 miles per hour.
