The introduction of Bentayga and Flying Spur Hybrid models underscores Bentley’s commitment to innovation and sustainability, paving the way for a greener, more electrified future.

In the meantime, North American customers eagerly await the arrival of the Edition 8 models, securing one of the last, most lavishly equipped V8-powered Bentleys before they become part of automotive history.
