A test prototype of the Bentley Bentayga has been photographed by WCF reader in Dubai.

Spotted on a gas station near the airport, the premium full-size SUV features the same prominent radiator grille flanked by quad headlights, also seen in the previous Bentayga test vehicles. You can also see a tiny tailgate-mounted spoiler and a dual exhaust system with massive pipes.

It’s interesting to note that Bentley is testing the new model virtually all around the world. We’ve seen test prototypes on the Nurburgring, in South Africa and in Scandinavia.

The British company already released two teaser videos of its first ever SUV. Rumors suggest the machine will be powered by either a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine or a 6.0-liter W12 motor with 608 PS (447 kW). A plug-in variant is also in the cards.

Special thanks go to Hattan Bakor for sending us the pics!
