WorldCarFans isn't a fan site that often goes guessing into the wind, so we perked up and listened when one of its headlines suggested that Bentley might be building an SUV. The only evidence the site has are spy shots of a Cayenne test mule, but it reasons that the platform underpinning the Porsche Cayenne, Volkswagen Touareg and Audi Q7 could further be stretched to include a Bentley bruiser. While the resulting sport utility would benefit from the development already done by the other automakers, it's powerplants would be derived from the rest of Bentley's line. The Arnage's 6.5L V8 with 475 bhp would be the "base" engine, and the Continental GT's twin turbo, 6.0L W12 that produces 560 bhp would be the range topper. The above shot is just a rendering, but Bentley's corporate visage would look just fine on an SUV, if you ask us.

      Um, comments about U.S. car makers ignoring the small car trend with their SUV's? I see MDX getting bigger, along with the CRV, the RAV4, and the Sorento, and Forester. Is the U.S. the only place criticized for disregard for global warming? I know that's no prize to achieve, and this country's boycott of the Kyoto Treaty is pathetic, but so is this SUV entry. Hummer is downsizing while Europe/Japan go bigger...go figure!?!

      And I thought that the Cayenne was an ugly POS! You know that if they build it. They will have a market for it. All they need is a celebrity endorsement from Paris Hilton. We all know that money does not breed class!

      Well, it's just an artists renduring. Bentley will make it a lot better looking than that. Besides, Bentley needs the sales boost that an SUV would create. Remember the Cayenne is uguly and not a true Porsche but it generates a good part of the sales and makes Porsche a lot richer.
      This could be just the boost in sales Bentley needs

      A Bentley SUV will essentially be a locomotive with 2 headlights for the highway?

      Why is it everytime something has large wheels or is expensive and different... someone has to bring up hip hop or bling bling?

      Trust me.. doesn't make you look like you can form valid arguments or are intelligent enough to comment on anything.

      Rappers aren't the only ones buying oversized wheels and what not or these cars, if that was the truth... the markets for either wouldnt be as big as it is now.

      They're just the ones that glorified it. But even so... please stop using those terms... they're tired.

      That would be a hip hop bling daddy dream come true.

      It looked and sound ridiculous to me at first until I remembered that another prestigious manufacturer, Aston Martin, has historically made a few shooting brake versions of their cars.
