Bentley is expected to reveal the Bentayga SUV next month at the Frankfurt Motor Show, but of a 1/18 scale diecast model may have just given the SUV an early reveal. The Bentayga will be Bentley’s first-ever SUV and thankfully the Bentayga has ditched many of the awkward styling cues from the EXP 9 F concept that previewed it.

Overall the look of the Bentayga looks more in line with the Continental GT and Flying Spur models thanks to its twin oval headlights and large grille. As you move further back you’ll see a large panoramic glass sunroof, a roof mounted spoiler. The rear of the Bentayga also borrows styling cues from the other Bentley models.

The Bentayga is expected to go on sale by next spring with a price tag starting over $200,000.
