2012 Bentley Continental GT with V8 Engine

2012 Bentley Continental GT

We already know that Bentley has big plans with the new turbocharged V8 for the 2012 Bentley Continental GT luxury sedan, which is going to be used on a number of upcoming S and RS models. The first to debut is expected to be the new S6, which should land in Frankfurt for this year’s edition of the motor show in September. However, Bentley is also very involved with the eight-pot and will unveil a V8-powered 2012 Bentley Continental GT luxury sedan just a few months later, in January.

Until the 2012 Detroit Auto Show debuts and brings with it the arrival of the new engine for the 2012 Bentley Continental GT luxury sedan, Bentley still has to unveil the facelifted version of the GTC convertible, which will sport the usual mix of LEDs, retouched cosmetics and better trim. Right now, all the models in the Continental range feature some versions of the same 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12, but that’s going to change next year, according to our online contributor.

The new 4.0-liter V8 will bring lower emissions and better economy to the 2012 Bentley Continental GT luxury sedan. Inside sources suggest the lighter engine block will come with an air of sportiness that’s been missing from the two-ton monster. The engineers have also tuned the exhaust to produce a proper growl, so customers won’t miss the W12 bellow. There’s no info on output figures for the 2012 Bentley Continental GT luxury sedan at the moment, but you can be sure the 4.0-liter will be less powerful than the W12, which produces from 567 hp.

The cars that Bentley offers will surely diversify in coming years, as the company plans to introduce not only the 2012 Bentley Continental GT luxury sedan, but also coupe and convertible versions of the new Mulsanne, and not forget the rumors of an SUV offering have been rampant.

One thing we find lacking from the V8 for the upcoming 2012 Bentley Continental GT luxury sedan is that it’s abundant across the market, while a twelve-cylinder with a ‘W’ configuration is as rare as four-leafed clovers.
