Bentley Working on V8 Engine with Audi

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!

  1. Imo it should be naturally aspirated. It has a much better response characteristic and does higher RPMs.
    BMW´s 4 litre V8 should be the Benchmark.

    It would be finally a proper engine for the R8 with V8 – the current 4.2 is a bit like “corded up” at high engine speeds and has too little punch when it´s launched ;)

  2. BMW’s 4 litre V8 to run a car as heavy as the continental?? are you mad?? even the new m5 is having a twin turbo 4.4 v8 in it and i bet the bentley almost ways the same as that. I definetly think it’s going to be a twin turbo
