About the Bentley Continental engine

The Continental GT was the fastest genuine four seat car in the world – a sporting coupé without rival. Obviously Bentley remembered key elements from the past and blended these with future demands as regards an ambitioned thoroughbred sports car. As a result the new Continental GT combined finest Grand Touring traditions with some of automotive world’s most advanced technologies.

It is equipped with a 5,998 cubic centimetres (366.0 cu in) (6.0 litre) twin-turbocharged W12 engine, which produces a DIN-rated motive power output of 560 metric horsepower (412 kW; 552 bhp) at 6,100 rpm, and torque of 650 newton metres (479 ft•lbf) at 1,600-6,100 rpm. Torsen-based permanent four-wheel drive is standard. It will accelerate from 0 to 100 kilometres per hour (0.0 to 62.1 mph) in 4.8 seconds, and go on to reach a top speed of 318 kilometres per hour (197.6 mph).

It did not need time consuming research in the company’s history to discover the legendary R Continental (1952-1955); at its time the fastest series-made four-seat car worldwide. After a gap of about half a century that position was occupied by a Bentley again, the new Continental GT. It is well worth to point out with four appropriate seats this model offered more than the rather devalued compromise of a 2+2 sometimes found elsewhere. Accelerating from 0 to 60mph in 4.7 seconds and capable of a top speed in excess of 190mph (over 300km/h) this four seater.

The 6 litre twin turbocharged W12 engine’s power output was 552bhp/411KW. A significant fact was a maximum torque generated at just 1.600rpm. Never before a 12 cylinder engine had been employed on a Bentley motor car.

Beside its more than sufficient level of power the W12-engine offered additional advantages, because this was the shortest twelve cylinder engine on the market. With dimensions of only 653mm length, 820mm width and 714 mm height the incredibly compact engine could be positioned perfectly well as regards weight distribution.

World Speed Record on Ice

In early 2007, a Bentley Continental GT Speed, driven by four-time World Rally Champion Juha Kankkunen, broke the World Speed Record on Ice – on the frozen Baltic Sea near Oulu, Finland. It averaged 321.6 kilometres per hour (199.83 mph) in both directions on the “flying kilometre”, reaching a maximum speed of 331 km/h (205.67 mph). The previous record was 296 km/h (183.9 mph), achieved with a Bugatti EB110 Supersport. The record-breaking Bentley was largely standard except for a roll-cage, aerodynamic improvements, and low-temperature fuel and calibration.
