Benefits of a V8 Engine in Bentley Models

There are various benefits to choosing a V8 engine, and if you’re hungry for performance, it’s sure to be a game changer. A V8 engine will deliver more power compared to a V6 engine, as well as more cargo capacity with the ability to haul more volume and heavier things.

Bentley Bentayga

The Bentley SUV everyone is talking about features a V8 engine option, and its performance certainly reflects that. Take a look at the specs for the 2021 Bentayga V8:

  • Max Speed: 180 mph
  • 0-60 mph: 4.4 seconds
  • Max Power: 542 BHP
  • Max Torque: 770 Nm

Two twin-scroll turbochargers provide an immediate response to the driver’s demands, allowing you to achieve breathtaking speeds as well as eye-popping torque at low engine speeds. One may assume that efficiency must be sacrificed in order to achieve such performance, but start-stop and variable displacement technologies ensure the Bentayga keeps its efficiency.

Bentley Continental GT

The Continental GT also features two twin-scroll turbochargers within its V8 engine, and with the sleeker frame, is able to surpass the Bentayga in both max speed and 0-60 mph mark, while maintaining the same max power and max torque:

  • Max Speed: 198 mph
  • 0-60 mph: 3.9 seconds
  • Max Power: 542 BHP
  • Max Torque: 770 Nm

The 2021 Continental GT V8 is considerably lighter than the previous iterations, enabling you to experience enhanced traction and stability as you accelerate thanks to its balanced weight distribution.

Bentley Flying Spur V8

The Flying Spur V8 has a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine and shares similar specs to the Continental GT V8. Epitomizing speed and agility with signature Bentley design, the Flying Spur V8 is yet another stellar V8-powered Bentley option:

  • Max Speed: 198 mph
  • 0-60 mph: 4.0 seconds
  • Max Power: 542 BHP
  • Max Torque: 770 Nm

The Flying Spur V8 is all about versatility, with optional Electronic All-Wheel Steering providing increased mobility and a smaller turning circle at lower speeds. The same technology enhances stability at higher speeds to give you confidence when overtaking and cornering.
