2017 Bentley GT Speed Engine
The W-12 engine has been goosed from 567 horsepower to 582, while torque is up by 15 lb-ft to 531. The addition of cyndrical tube deactivation– which the unchanged-for-2017 V-8 currently had– enables the W-12 to run as a six-cylinder in minutes of lesser seriousness. (The fuel-saving function, however not the added result, comes also to the Flying Spur sedan’s available W-12. The four-door likewise gets several of the interior updates, and also the Wi-Fi connectivity, but none of the styling tweaks.).
Although the brand-new power and torque numbers stay reluctant of the 12-cylinder Continental GT Speed– which corrals 626 equines and also 607 lb-ft– they do nose in advance of the GT3-R. Although, to be reasonable, that suggestive two-seater has two-thirds the cyndrical tube count.
Without a doubt, the GT3-R’s usage of the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 instead than the typical W-12 led some to hypothesize that Bentley may be ushering its 12-cylinder powerplant towards the leave, at the very least in the two-door Continentals. Yet the engine’s upgrade for 2017 recommends that the Flying B brand name means to keep both of its twin-turbo providings around, at the very least for a while.
