Bentley
The V8 engine at Bentley celebrates its 50th anniversary.

This year will mark the 6¾-liter Bentley V8 engine’s 50th anniversary, with the motor having seen its first installation in the 1959 Bentley S2. The mill was enlarged back in 1968 to its current displacement and has seen the addition of turbochargers and intercoolers on the way to its current position under the hoods of the 530-horsepower Bentley Brooklands coupe, Arnage and Azure convertible models for 2009.
