Bentley Continental GTC V8 2013Posted on Wednesday, April 4th, 2012 in Bentley.
Similar technology from the Bentley Continental GTC V8, once the engine’s control microprocessor picks up an easy throttle opening because the driver keeps a stable cruising speed or gentle acceleration or deceleration it shuts the valves in four from the eight cylinders to ensure that they just behave as air springs.
Within the mission for efficiency, Bentley engineers considered the style of every aspect of minimise energy deficits without compromising energy or sturdiness. This method of ‘engine optimisation’ placed from oil viscosity, variable oil pressure and indirect intercooling to using low friction bearings. Abnormally, in addition to being technically demanding to attain, the turbochargers are mounted inside the ‘V’ from the V8, adding to efficiency and fat loss, a procedure that Bentley’s engineering call ‘hot side inside’.
Bentley’s engineers also have designed the electrical system to operate inside a more effective way, reducing the quantity of energy sapped through the alternator. While using principle of recuperation, the alternator’s output is ‘topped up’ through the battery at low engine speeds, then the operation is corrected via energy recovery throughout individuals occasions once the vehicle is decelerating.
However the finest achievement of would be that the thunderous Bentley performance qualities are maintained. Full throttle acceleration will catapult the Bentley Continental GT V8 or GTC V8 past 60 miles per hour in under five seconds performance figures only surpassed through the 6. litre W12 powered models.
Better yet, it is going to do so by having an concentration of aural and physical feedback – an in-depth growl rising to some full throttle racer’s pitch – that provides a brand new type of Bentley driving exhilaration. Bentley’s engineers recognized no compromises within their quest for efficiency – and consequently, the proprietors from the new Bentley Continental V8 models need make no compromises within their enjoyment of their performance.
The brand new Bentley Continental V8 designs include all of the sculpted, muscular elegance of the W12 stablemates, using their distinctive wide rear track, super created aluminium wings, effective haunches and low, poised stance. But numerous key variations distinguish these branches from the Continental family.
