Bentley has finally entered the performance SUV market, and the British automaker is making its debut model count: in a newly unveiled video, the Bentley Bentayga is seen breaking the record for top SUV speed. Sure, the recorded speed of 301 km/h (or 187 mph) means the Bentayga broke the previous record -- held by the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S -- by just one kilometer, but a record's still a record. The feat is achieved with a new 6.0-liter W12 TSI engine, packing a new injection system and a host of other enhancements to produce 600 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque. Check out the video below.
