Re: Bentley Shoud Be Ashamed!!! <!-- QUOTE --><center><hr width="90%"></center><blockquote><i>Quote from Vajra</i> <b>Are you all not getting the big picture?! Okay, yes it is a Bentley... GREAT (sike), and it fast (217.5mph) woopty doo. Now on one of these forums I noticed someone making a false correction but I myself may be wrong. THIS IS A V16, W16 IS JUST THE LAYOUT. Now, Bentley should be ashamed of themselves on this one... the car has 623hp and even less torque than that. Does anyone see the problem with this picture? You should because its a freakin' V16!!! Bentley should be extracting way more horsepower from that engine and the torque is horrible, I'm pretty sure that that much torque and horsepower is only available in the top two gears which means nothing in a race or on the street. Furthermore this is not the first attempt at a V16 engine, CADILLAC built V16's at one time, they were the first and I believe only to do so until Bentley built this monstrosity. You all are praising this car like its the king of supercar's, oh and I forgot, it only goes 217.5 (yeah I know... only) If a V8 can go 254.7 you better tell me a V16 can do at least 270mph. Anyway Bentley would be gyping people on this one (I also forgot the average mile/gallon for a basic bentley is somethink like 5-6miles/gallon which is also horrible, and this is a true gas guzzler). Get off this cars jock, its just a luxury tempo on steroids. </b></blockquote><center><hr width="90%"></center><!-- END QUOTE --> the engine is a W16 composed of 4 VR6 for which VW (owner of Bentley)has retired 2 cylinders. The engine is naturally aspired. the 85% torque is available on EACH gear.the torque is reached at a precise RPM , it doesn't depend at all on the gear selection !!!!!!! the V8 you're refering to is a TWINTURBO engine !!!!! Learn your stuff before telling such mistakes.
