Bentley has already said their upcoming crossover will become the "most luxurious and powerful SUV on the market" and it looks like they meant it as sales and marketing director Kevin Rose has revealed the W12 version will be the "fastest SUV on sale."

Bentley has already said their upcoming crossover will become the "most luxurious and powerful SUV on the market" and it looks like they meant it as sales and marketing director Kevin Rose has revealed the W12 version will be the "fastest SUV on sale."

In order to achieve this lofty goal, the luxury-oriented model - which could be called the Falcon - will have to duke it out with crossovers such as the BMW X5 / X6 M, Porsche Cayenne Turbo S and Range Rover Sport SVR. As a result, power will be provided by the company's familiar twin-turbo W12 engine but it unclear what it will be rated at.

Interestingly, Rose told Car & Driver that he expects the plug-in hybrid variant will become the best selling model. Nearly 30 percent of potential buyers are interested in the eco-friendly variant and it is expected to have an electric-only range of up to 30 miles (48.2 miles).

Besides the aforementioned engines we can expect a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 and possibly a Bentley-tuned version of Audi's 4.2-liter V8 TDI.
