Well, there are more feathers on one side of the badge than the other 😎 it was done so you can spot a fake.
Another piece of useless information for you 😁

Having had a R-R I can confirm the wings on the blessed mascot are also different. As is her diaphanously elegant gown.
Having owned a total of 22 cars and 6 m'bikes over 60 years, and at one time or another been able to fettle them all, I'm now on my last one, suitably a Rover 75. However, given the black hole that is DV whatsit, I might not drive again. Licence still awaited.

Anyone thinking of getting a Bentayga as a tow car should read this
https://cardealermagazine.co.uk/publ...caravan/266457

Staggering, towing software cannot be retro fitted, really? Come on Bentley, surly you can do better than that? These are massive cars, I cant recall if it is this or the RR equivalent that has one heck of a bonnet poking out at the front.

Do check out RR cars not the SUV rear light cluster, I'm sure they got the idea from Rover and its 75

It just might be that Bentley would prefer their products not to be associated with a 'towing' customer base. I don't know why I'm sure, just a feeling. Image, after all.

And that coupled with self level 4x4 off road computer capabilities, it does not bode well for a trouble free system. looks better without a towbar being present outside a mayfair hotel. This is range rover territory , both cars and customers are viewed in different leagues im afraid. ...

If so you need to make 9 feathers on left and 10 on right
