Riza Rizvi, Hopelessly in love with everything on four wheels. Interested in cars since my formative years, with an unhealthy affinity for exotics and tuners. Fondness for the open road with high-octane machinery for company!

Bentley will be launching the much-awaited Bentley Bentayga SUV at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. Previous spyshots and teasers have shown that the SUV is a capable off-roader, but the latest teaser released shows the SUV blasting down a high-speed test track.
The Bentayga is based on the same aluminium-intensive MLB Evo platform that underpins the Audi Q7. Bentley has claimed that the super luxury mid-size SUV will not compromise on thier high standards of performance. The video above is the first proof of just how fast this mid-size SUV can go.
This clip shows the vehicle undergoing a speed test on a test track. The car looks composed and stable as it takes on the banks at a blistering pace and then the inside view focusing on the digital speedometer of the SUV, which reveals a top speed of 301 km/h, making Bentley's Bentayga the fastest SUV in the world.
The most powerful variant of the Bentayga will be powered by a 6.0-liter turbocharged W12 engine capable of 550 bhp and 700 Nm of torque. The drive will be sent to all four wheels via a sophisticated AWD system, and is expected to propel the SUV from 0-100 km/h in under 5 seconds.
