Rumors of the Bentley SUV are getting a bit old to be honest, but it seems the top brass has finally made up its mind.
Reports are strongly suggesting that Bentley’s long-awaited sport utility will be unveiled, at least in concept form, at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show in March. They are even suggesting ‘John o’ Groats’ as the name of the car. Bentley, apparently, has decided to name its cars after places in Britain.
As for the details, well they are scarce at the moment. But you can be sure it is based on the Audi Q7’s platform and will have the same sort of off-road capability. It will also get same W12 engine as the Continental – to have a distinguishing feature over the competition – and will probably get the new V8 as well when it’s set for market launch.
With the Maserati Kubang and Lamborghini SUV in the picture, it’s time for Bentley to hustle and out with it, if they’re going to make the car or not.
