Bentley Continental GT

It seems that Bentley is preparing a new debut for the 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed, the Continental GT V8. The model will be displayed both on the Bentley stand and on the Goodwood Hill. This exciting Bentley Continental GT V8 combines classic Bentley power and torque with an incredible power-to-emission ratio thanks to its all-new 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine. The 507 PS and 660 Nm of torque output enable the car to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds and to reach a top speed of 188 mph. The CO2 emissions and the fuel economy are at very low levels because of the cylinder deactivation technology. The model has a 500 mile range on a single tank. Two of the modern cars present on the Hill are the Bentley Speed 8, a car that managed to come out victorious at the 2003 Le Mans 24 Hours and the 4 ½ -liter supercharged Birkin Blower. Because of its combination of classic and contemporary models, the carmaker will have its largest ever presence at the famous event, running from Friday 29th to Sunday 1st July. A concept representing the car of the future also makes its debut. The UK fans can welcome the EXP9 F SUV concept, the fastest and most luxurious SUV in the world. It combines, muscular exterior with an incredible interior and uses clean technology. The Goodwood Festival of Speed is where you should be if you want to see the fastest supercars in the world. This year around 60 supercars will show their face for the first time and 180.000+visitors to the Festival of Speed and Moving Motor Show will be there to see them. The carmakers are also preparing some surprises, so the 60 units are not all.
