Bentley Continental GT V8
Bentley is preparing to introduce a new engine in the range, designed to reduce the carbon emissions media. To prepare the ground, the British manufacturer has already published a short video clip that captures the sound of the V8 petrol engine, entitled: The New Sound of Bentley.
Most likely, judging by the transfer of technology that we are accustomed to inside the Volkswagen Group, Bentley will receive the new 4.0-liter V8 twin-turbo engine found also on Audi S6, Audi S7 and Audi S8, with powers ranging between 420 and 520 horsepower. The engine available on Bentley Continental GT V8 has a 7-speed S-tronic transmission or a 8-speed Tiptronic transmission.
The new V8 enginewill be used in the British range on the already known models: Bentley Continental GT V8 and Bentley Continental GTC V8. The official launch is expected in January at the Detroit Auto Show 2012 (North American International Auto Show – NAIAS 2012), given the importance of the U.S. market for the manufacturer from Crewe.
