A lightly camouflaged prototype of the Bentley Bentayga has been caught on camera performing testing procedures in Dubai.

UAE is going to be one of the biggest markets for Bentley's first ever crossover so it shouldn't come as a surprise they are bringing prototypes to conduct hot weather testing in Dubai. Just like in our most recent sets of spy shots and videos, the car had some stickers on the headlights and taillights to hide the design and it also featured black tape on the front and rear bumpers.

It will ride on the same platform as the second generation Audi Q7 and as far as the design is concerned it will be massively different than the EXP 9 F concept. One of the engines which will power the Bentayga is the recently introduced W12 6.0-liter TSI twin-turbo engine unleashing 608 PS & 900 Nm. Following next year's launch, the model will also gain a plug-in hybrid version in 2017 while a V8 diesel and a twin-turbo V8 gasoline engine will likely be offered as well.
