The previous V8 engine attracted several laurels and could have been used in this latest venture as well but Bentley was keen to show that its 12-cylinder still had potential if employed cleverly. The changes and up-gradations in its turbo pressure and engine software management have resulted in an increase of power from 616 to 626bhp, whereas the torque available has been increased from 590 to 607lb ft. The transmission provided which feeds power to engine is an 8-speed automatic, comprising of an excellent compression ratio, a bias towards the rear axle. The displacement or the maximum time taken from accelerating from 0-6omph has been reduced as well. The previous 4.2 seconds now is limited to 4 seconds and if feet be firmly planted the next change to 100mph can be reached in 9 seconds only.
