Project HunaudiSres has a 16-cylinder engine with 8 litre capacity. The engine has an output of 463kW (623 bhp) and a maximum torque of 760 Nm (561 lb ft). Thanks to variable camshaft timing, 85% of the torque is available at as low as 1,500 revs. The engine is made up of two banks of eight cylinders which are fitted at 72o to form a W, based on the VR principle with a cylinder angle of 15o.

The name HunaudiSres refers to the famous high-speed straight at Le Mans where the Bentley legend was born in the 1920’s with five victories in the vingt quatre heures du Mans.
