Bentley Continental GT: V8 Sound at Goodwood [Video]
Plenty of rappers and footballers, plus most recently the Chinese, bough the W12 sports luxury coupe on mass. Journalists complained about the lack of feel, the bulk and the shamefully quiet exhaust. Bentley’s answer finally came when they introduced a 500 horsepower 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine developed by Audi.
Not very many people have gotten to experience the sound of the V8 luxury/sport combo Bentley was promising. However, thanks to a video shot by Shmee150 at Goodwood, we can show you what the car is like under racier conditions, at the Goodwood Hillclimb circuit in the UK.
The car sounds like it wants to maul you under acceleration, but is extremely quite on flybys.
