Bentley and Audi are working on the development of an all-new V8 engine that will be heading into the new Continental GT towards the end of next year. The engine will also be used for a number of high-performance Audis. The 4.0 liter direct-injection unit has two main advantagers; lower average fuel consumption and lower emissions.
Not a lot is known at this stage, but according Whatcar only its CO2 output will be 40 precent below that of the W12 unit.
Stay tuned for more in the future!
