Bentley turbo and twin turbo V8

Bentley will soon reveal the variations of the Continental V8, equipped with new engines, which we also see in the Audi range. More precisely, according to the advances of Autocar, the new generation 4-liter V8 will be offered in mono version 420 and 450 hp turbo and a twin turbo about 560 bhp. In all likelihood these differences will be kept at home Audi, where the 450 hp version will go into the hood of the S6 and RS6 bi-turbo in the future, leaving the 420 hp variant of the Continental.

The logic is to have dual-clutch transmission with 7-speed S-Tronic, which will then also adopted by Bentley. Business strategies will still be different for the two brands: the V8 should debut in Frankfurt on the S6, at which the new Bentley Continental GTC reveal yet equipped with the W12.

The Bentley V8 it should debut at the Detroit Motor Show in January 2012, given the importance of the American market for sales, and then appear in Europe in March at the Geneva motor show: the likely starting debut as a less powerful version of the entry level range.
