Bentley and Audi developed a new V8 engine

British carmaker, Bentley and Audi decided to unite forces and create a new V8 turbocharged engine and they did. Now, the 4.0-liter engine that will power the Continental GT and GTC, the convertible version, will produce 500 horsepower at 6.000 rpm and 487 lb. ft. of torque. The power is being sent to the wheels through a new eight-speed automatic transmission. This helps the car accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in less than 5 seconds and reach a top speed of 180 mph.
When it comes to CO2 emissions, the carmakers were careful and so were with the fuel efficiency. So, the vehicle will offer a driving range of over 500 miles, cutting fuel consumption and also the CO2 emissions, by 40%.
This was possible thanks to a cylinder deactivation system that turns it into a V4 one when it doesn't need the power. The two models feature black gloss front grille, a chrome finish form the frame and the center bar, a black matrix three-part lower front fascia and a red "B" badge.
The cars will be presented to the world at the Detroit Auto Show, on January 9th, next year.
