Bentley’s new twin-turbo V8 Continental

Bentley has confirmed a brand new  twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine for its Continental GT and GTC  models.
Set to debut at next month’s Detroit motor show, the new V8 delivers  500bhp and 487 torques said to be accessible “across virtually the  entire rev range” from 1,700rpm to 5,000rpm. Bentley reckons this new V8  fitted in the GT - together with the eight-speed auto - is good for a  sub-five second 0-60mph run and a top speed of over 180mph.
Some time ago, Bentley made an environmental commitment to deliver a new  engine that would increase fuel efficiency and cut CO2 emissions. With  this in mind, the new V8 is claimed to travel over 500 miles on a single  tank of fuel. Presumably on a very straight, downhill road on partial  throttle…
Full economy figures will be released next month, but Bentley tells us  the 4.0-litre gets a high-tech engine management system, switching to  just four cylinders under lighter loads, as well as high pressure direct  injection, low friction bearings, energy recuperation via a charging  system and clever packaging of the turbo.
