Bentley has released a teaser video for their new turbocharged 4.0 litre V8 that will be showcased in full at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. According to the UK car manufacturer the stirring and thunderous sound is the prelude to a potent new Bentley driving experience.

The engine was joint developed with Audi, has been tuned to “deliver all the exhilarating power and torque synonymous with the marque” and will be used for the first time in the GT Continental. The new turbocharged V8 will be made available to customers as either a 415bhp, single turbocharged version or as a more powerful twin-turbocharged 555bhp variant.
