Someone please explain to me what Bentley did to the Bentayga V8 to make it handle 3 better than the diesel and W12

    It's very simple. It is the lighter engine. Many cars from sedans to sportscars, when they add a smaller engine, they might handle better because there is less weight in the front on the wheels. Same thing here. The V8 handles better than the big W12.

    V8 - 2388kg
    W12 - 2440kg
    Diesel - 2505kg

    2440-2388 = 52kg
    2505-2440 = 65kg

    If 52kg = plus 3 handling,
    Then why is 65kg difference not resulting in 3 more handling?

    I’m amazed their handling is better than the Range Rover sport SVR and other various lighter suvs but definitely shouldn’t be three more

    It's not just the lower weight, it's the location of the weight reduction, although that handling boost does feel generous.
