Bentley’s Power Shift: The 750 PS Hybrid V8 Set to Replace Iconic W12 Engine



Bentley is introducing a powerful 750 horsepower V8 hybrid as their new flagship powertrain

The British automaker is phasing out the W12 engine, embracing a future that includes potent hybrid technology

It's the end of an era at Bentley. Enthusiasts of engines with numerous pistons and unique configurations will need to brace themselves. After producing 105,000 units over two decades, the 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12 engine is set to retire this summer.

The hefty power unit is being replaced by a V8 hybrid engine that boasts over 750 horsepower. That's 91 more than the W12's most recent output, for instance in the Flying Spur. According to Bentley, this is the highest power ever offered in their vehicles. This propulsion system is set to define Bentley's future starting this summer.

Technological advancements in Formula 1 have been enhancing the efficiency of combustion engines for ten years and are being further tested in the World Endurance Championship's Hypercar series. This cutting-edge technology is increasingly being incorporated into street-legal, high-performance vehicles, such as the successor to the Lamborghini Huracán and the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S E Performance.

Bentley is confident that this move will create the most dynamic, responsive, and efficient system ever seen. It's likely the level of confidence needed when dealing with such high-performance "everyday supercars" on a daily basis.

The latest innovation from Bentley is set to enhance the performance and efficiency of their existing hybrid powertrains. The projected all-electric range stands at 80 kilometers. The new system promises a torque in the thousands, spread across a wider band, which is expected to impress prospective buyers. Additionally, Bentley is committed to environmental sustainability, aiming to lower CO2 emissions to below 50 g/km, as per the WLTP driving cycle, with this new engine.

Further Information on Bentley

The only question remaining is how frequently a typical Bentley owner actually drives using only electric power, aside from the short distance from the garage to the entrance of their luxury home. When it comes to the total output of what Bentley dubs the "Ultra Performance Hybrid," the electric motor indeed provides substantial assistance to the V8 in achieving the aforementioned power levels.

Bentley has plans to release more information about their electrified powertrain in the upcoming weeks. Those who don't yet own a W12 might want to start saving up their pennies soon. The British automaker points out that there are still some models available with the W12 and V8 engines without hybrid technology for purchase at the moment.
