The 2022 Bentley Bentayga Speed Space Edition is a one-off trim of the ultra-luxurious SUV.
Bentley is one of the most exceeding automobile manufacturers globally, and they have been making some of the most luxurious and powerful vehicles for over a century now. The whole idea of a Bentley is to deliver effortless performance as it cruises at high speeds thanks to its extensive and powerful engines, while keeping its occupant relaxed and stress-free. Back in 2016, Bentley decided to join the wave of modern SUVs and crossovers by launching the Bentley Bentayga, which also happens to be the company's first-ever SUV. The vehicle was an instant hit thanks to its imposing stance and powerful engine, along with an endless list of customization for its owners.
For 2022, Bentley has released a new version of the Bentayga, which happens to be the speed space edition. This version is mechanically identical to any other Bentley Bentayga, but it gets heavy cosmetic modification over the standard car, and it is also released in limited production numbers making the vehicle super rare. The car gets a lot of astronomical inspiration like comets, shooting stars, and the galaxies above.

Bentley Bentayga Speed Space Edition Is A Visual Delight
The 2022 Bentley Bentayga space edition is an exclusive model built by Mulliner, the brand in-house design studio, for a special customer. The vehicle takes a lot of inspiration from astronomical elements, and the attention to detail on every panel of the vehicle is just exquisite. The space edition comes with a greenish-gray Cypress paint job and an orange accent that a comet's dust trails have inspired. The space-inspired design is also carried forward towards the vehicle's interior as it has a solar system depicted on the illuminated door sills, which looks stunning, particularly at night. The door sills are a very excellent detailed work of art; also, the vehicle has a fair bit of orange accents on the steering wheel, dashboard, and near the gear lever. This emphasizes the solar eruptions and the dust trail left by a comet as it shoots through space. This vehicle is very exclusive, and just one special edition made for a customer who spent a fortune to get this vehicle spec as desired.

The cabin of this automobile is very bespoke and covered in the best materials possible. The Beluga and Porpoise Color scheme is used extensively in the cabin, as it depicts the night sky. A similar aesthetic finishing can be seen on the satin speaker grills of the car as they get illuminated at night, which is done so that it resembles the stars in the space. The vehicle's exterior is heavily reworked and resonates with everything on the interior. The vehicle does not have any loud or shouty graphics, but more of a stealth and elegant look. The official pictures released by Bentley show the car at night under the stars, and the view is stunning to look at. Sources claim that the greenish-gray cypress paint found on this vehicle is the same color and shade as seen on the first 2003 generation Bentley Continental GT. The standard Bentley Bentayga gets a lot of chrome treatment, but this special edition replaces all the shiny exterior with gloss black finishing, which happens to be another nod to space. The orange flame accents found in the interior also found on the exterior running Board of the vehicle on either side.

Bentley Bentayga Speed Space Edition: A Powerful Turbocharged Machine
Underneath all the jazz and bling of the special edition, the Bentley Bentayga remains to be a big, powerful SUV. The car is powered by a 626 HP twin-turbocharged W12 engine that has enough power to launch this vehicle tank from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds. This is a relatively impressive number considering that the vehicle is worth 5000 pounds, and no one expects this vehicle to perform the way it does. The car uses a 9-speed automatic transmission and sends all its power to all four wheels by an intelligent four-wheel-drive system. The vehicle's top speed is 190 MPH, and the engine is capable of reaching the speeds without breaking a sweat.

The vehicle also has a Bentley signature audio system, a 590-watt unit and 12 speakers in total. Other optional features include heated and ventilated seats, a massage function, and a full-size panoramic sunroof. The vehicle also comes with standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a wireless phone charger, and dual-zone climate control.
