The sound is unmistakeable; the deep growl that can only be a V8. But this is a new generation of V8. An engine so efficient it can travel over 500 miles on a single tank and at the same time get from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 4.6 seconds.
New Bentley Continental GT V8
Two new Bentley Continental V8 models will be unveiled at the North
American International Auto Show in Detroit on 9th January 2012.
The new 4.0 litre, twin turbocharged V8
Continental GT coupé and GTC convertible achieve exceptional standards for
power-to-emissions in the high luxury sports car sector.
This remarkable, new Bentley V8 engine delivers maximum power of 500bhp
(507PS/373Kw) at 6000 rev/min and an extraordinary peak torque of 660Nm
(487 lb ft) which is available across virtually the entire rev range from
1700 to 5000 rev/min, providing exhilarating performance and effortless
power delivery in the Bentley tradition. Combined with a new close-ratio
8-speed automatic transmission, this translates into a sub-5 second
acceleration time for the 0-60 mph (0-100km/h) sprint and a top speed of
over 180mph (290km/h).
At the same time, the new V8 Continental models achieve outstanding levels
of fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions for the luxury performance sector and
are capable of travelling over 500 miles (800km) on a single tank of fuel.
Full and official figures will be released in early 2012.
The arrival of the new V8 Continental models fulfils Bentley's
environmental commitment to produce a new powertrain that delivers a 40 per
cent improvement in fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions.
The new V8 engine features variable displacement with a highly
sophisticated engine management system, ensuring a seamless and
imperceptible transition from V8 to V4 mode under light throttle load.
The high-technology V8 also features high pressure direct injection, low
friction bearings, thermal management, energy recuperation via the charging
system, and innovative turbo charger
packaging for greater efficiency.
The instantly recognisable growl of the new 4.0 litre V8 engine sets it
apart from its Bentley stablemates.
The new V8 engine will be available in two models; the Continental GT and
the Continental GTC. Expressing their potent, muscular character, these
models are distinguished by a black gloss matrix grille with chrome frame
and centre bar, a red enamel Bentley 'B' badge, and a black matrix
three-segment lower front bumper divided by distinctive body-coloured
At the rear, unique chromed 'figure eight' Exhaust tailpipes, a dark lower valance and red
enamel 'B' bootlid badge emphasise the sporty, contemporary identity of the
Both models are specified with 20-inch alloy wheels as standard with an
optional 21-inch six-spoke design which is available in dramatic Diamond
Black (exclusive to the Continental V8) or Diamond Silver finishes.
Inside the cabin, an Eliade cloth headlining, new contemporary Dark
Fiddleback Eucalyptus veneers, optional two-tone leather colour split and
short centre console continue the fresh, sporting design theme.
The two new Continental models will be offered beneath the flagship 6.0
litre,12-cylinder engined Continental GT and GTC, which continue to excite
customers with a combination of silken refinement and the ultimate power of
the twin-turbocharged W12 Continental
engine that, in its most potent form, delivers an astonishing 631bhp
Both new models feature a state-of-the-art, all-wheel drive system
employing an advanced Torsen differential and a 40:60 rear biased power
split. This ensures safe yet dynamic sports car handling in all road
Since the launch of the original GT in 2003, the W12-engined Continental
range has gone from strength to strength with over 50,000 sales worldwide,
making Bentley's factory in Crewe, England, the largest producer of 12
cylinder engines in the world. The W12 story continues to unfold and
remains the ultimate expression of Bentley's engineering strength.
Commenting on the launch of the new V8 Continental models, Wolfgang
Dürheimer, Chairman and Chief Executive, Bentley Motors said:
"With the new 4.0 litre V8 engine we are widening the appeal of the latest
generation of Continentals, introducing a completely new driving
experience. The new engine will have all the exhilarating power, drama and
performance you would expect from a V8 engine sporting the famous Bentley
wings, effortlessly delivered with our characteristic 'wave of torque'.
This is complemented by innovative powertrain technology that delivers
exceptional fuel efficiency and emissions."
Bentley - Power On Ice - Bentley Continental GT V8 & W12
With an all-wheel-drive system that offers reassuring driveability in all
conditions, the Bentley Continental GT is the perfect Grand Tourer to take
on the challenge posed by driving in snow and icy conditions, particularly
as the northern hemisphere winter sets in. To push the car's cold climate
capabilities further, February 2013 sees the return of the Bentley Power on
Ice programme, offering existing owners, enthusiasts and aspiring drivers
the chance to explore the extreme limits of the Continental GT on the
frozen lakes of northern Finland.
While the Continental GT is a relaxing and exceptionally capable Grand
Tourer regardless of the driving surface, the participants will be led by a
team of expert instructors who will help the guests explore a range of
driving techniques. Leading the line-up is Finnish rally star, four-time
World Rally champion and modern-day Bentley Boy Juha Kankkunen. Kankkunen
is already an expert at driving Bentleys on ice; in February 2011 he broke
his own Ice Speed Record, piloting a Bentley Continental Supersports
Convertible to 205 mph (330 km/h) on the frozen Baltic Sea off the coast of
Finland. A national hero in his native Finland, Kankkunen comments:
"The opportunity to once again drive the Continental GT around our famous
ice tracks is one I can't resist. The huge power combined with
all-wheel-drive and the new eight-speed gearbox makes the GT the perfect
car for such exciting and engaging driving. Our customers are always amazed
that their cars are so rewarding to drive at the limit of grip, and it's my
pleasure to teach them how to do it!"
MN 169 - New Mercedes-Benz SL - Toyota Land Cruiser V8-Maserati Kubang-Kia cee'd
The new Mercedes-Benz SL has been produced for the first time almost
entirely from aluminium and weighs up to 140 kilograms less than its
predecessor. Its highly rigid bodyshell provides the basis for agile,
sporty handling coupled with exemplary roll characteristics and ride
comfort. The new V8 in the SL 500 develops 435 hp, around 12 percent more
than its predecessor while fuel consumption has been reduced by up to 22
percent. The new V6 engine in the SL 350 develops 306 hp and uses just 6.8
litres of fuel per 100 kilometres, making it almost 30 percent more
economical than its predecessor. The SL 350 accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h
in 5.9 seconds and the SL 500 takes just 4.6 seconds. -- The new Kia
cee'd combines styling typically found on a sporty coupe with the space and
functionality of a five-door hatch. -- Positioned as the ultimate Toyota
Land Cruiser, the Land Cruiser V8 has never wanted for much in terms of
quality, performance, luxury and unmissable road presence. That formidable
combination notwithstanding, the newly unveiled 2012 model goes even
further in terms of sharper design inside and out, more creature comforts
and advanced handling technologies for exceptional off-road capabilities.
-- Maserati has given the Kubang concept its American debut with the
all-new SUV unveiled at the Detroit International Motor Show. The Kubang
demonstrates the strength of the modern Maserati, capable of offering an
Italian alternative to the most competitive segments of the market.

2013 Aston Martin Vanquish (573hp) - DRIVE & SOUND (1080p)
Super loud and exciting Drive & Sound with the all new 2013 Aston Martin
Vanquish powered by a massive 6.0 V12 with 573 hp and 620 Nm of torque. A
few weeks ago I had the awsome opportunity to drive this very exclusive top
of the range Aston Martin. Altough the same V12 finds its way in other
Aston Martin Models, specifically this Vanquish Exhaust system produces a sound from another
world. Once you press the "S" button the car is put into sport mode and
opens the Exhaust valves. What follows
is as loud as a Ferrari V12 and soo unique that you can recognize it from
far away. This really is a proper super car that causes turning heads and
questions of interested people everywhere. I am really looking forward to
your comments and feedback on how you like this video footage. If you have
not already done so please feel also free to LIKE and SUBSCRIBE!

2014 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6X6 vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG! Head 2 Head Ep. 46
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman heads to Graz, Austria, the
home of one of the world's toughest off roaders - the Mercedes-Benz
G-Wagen. The last time a G63 appeared on Head 2 Head, it beat out the
all-new and quite excellent Range Rover Supercharged. This time, however,
the G63 faces even stiffer competition — another G63. Of course, this
particular G has an extra axle, because it's the $500,000+ G63 AMG 6x6!
Costing roughly twice as much as the awesome twin-turbo V-12 powered G65, the 6x6 is the ultimate
expression of the Gelandewagen... on paper. But is it actually any good? Is
the 6x6 as awesome as it looks, or is the regular G-Wagen just too well
thought out? And why is the 6-wheeled truck always jumping in the air like
that? Watch and find out!
Head 2 Head appears every other Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.
