Streaking out of a sandstorm might seem like on odd setting for a bespoke British SUV. Consider, though, that Bentley likely plans to sell a ton of these things in the Middle East and the force-of-nature unveiling seems rather relevant.

Digital Trends has been reporting on rumors of a Bentley SUV for a while now. Finally, the next best English 4×4 has been confirmed. From what we’ve heard so far, the Bentley SUV could be a diesel or it could even be a hybrid. Both powertrains would make sense, as Bentley’s parent company, Volkswagen AG, is rather keen on both.

Although we can’t see much, we know two things: 1.) The forthcoming and yet-unnamed Bentley SUV will look pretty much like you imagine. 2.) It’ll be a big, bossy, heft of a thing that will float like its weightless and hammer up hills like it’s powered by dark energy.

Bentley plans to sell 3000 of its new SUVs each year. Dr. Wolfgang Schreiber, Chairman and Chief Executive at Bentley Motors, commenting at a press conference in London, said of the SUV, “It will create a completely new segment in the SUV market.”

When will the full meal deal be unveiled? We’re not sure. We’re hoping for the 2014 New York Auto Show. We’ll be on the ground in New York next month and reporting live. Should something come to light before then, we’ll be sure to bring it to you. So check back often.

The 11 best Robert De Niro movies to stream right now
From Raging Bull to The Godfather Part II, these are the roles that have defined De Niro's long career
Robert De Niro in Goodfellas

There are few actors working today who can match the career that Robert De Niro has had. Some, like Brad Pitt or even George Clooney, have been in plenty of great movies, but even they don't stack up to the kind of career that De Niro has had over the last half a century. De Niro's success can be chalked up, at least in part, to his collaboration with great directors. De Niro has been in some of Martin Scorsese's best movies, and Scorsese isn't the only director who knows how to use him.

Really, though, it's De Niro himself who deserves a lot of the credit. Although he's been in plenty of schlock, the best movies of his career are up there with the best movies ever made. When he emerged on the scene, De Niro showed off his ability to play a range of different types, and his skills have only deepened as the years have gone by. Keep reading and find out what Robert De Niro movies you cannot miss if you have already.

The 12 best Adam Sandler movies (they’re not all comedies)
From Uncut Gems to Happy Gilmore, these are the films that defined Sandler's career to date

What is there left to say about Adam Sandler? The Sand-Man has been a fixture of pop culture for well over 20 years, having worked first on Saturday Night Live and then broken out in a series of farcical, wonderful comedies in the years after his departure. He's one of the biggest comedy stars on the planet, and he's been part of some of the best comedy movies. He's also made plenty of movies that nobody should be forced to watch twice.
For every movie that has immediately been relegated to the trash bin of history, though, Sandler has also made an indelible comedy or a surprising turn into drama. While he could have emerged looking a little bit like a one-trick pony who relies on funny voices for cheap laughs, Sandler turned out to be far more complicated than that. He is a genuinely great actor whenever he wants to be. The rest of the time, he's content to make silly movies with his best friends. Here are the best Adam Sandler movies you need to watch now.
