Bentley Released the Engine Specs of EXP 9F SU
The British luxury car maker Bentley unveiled the EXP 9F at the Geneva Motor show in March 2012. This car made it to the controversies but couldn’t win much appreciation but despite all this, the premium Bentley SUV has been in news constantly. Bentley is now hurrying with the commencement of production plans of this car and it has also revealed the engine specifications of Bentley EXP 9F at the Beijing Auto Show 2012. The first of the powertrains driving the EXP 9F SUV is the Bentley’s flagship 6-liter, W12 petrol engine affixed with twin scroll turbo chargers; this engine is capable of generating a peak power of massive 600 PS and an enormous peak torque of 800 Nm.
The other drivetrain could be the 4-liter direct injection twin turbo V8 engine that is capable of pumping out a peak power of 500 PS and a peak torque of 650 Nm. An eight speed automatic gearbox is going to be coupled with both these engine options. Another important revelation from this British marque at the Beijing Auto show 2012 is that the company is also considering a V6 plug-in hybrid powertrain for this newfangled Bentley SUV. The hybrid powertrain was not revealed in detail but the bits that surfaced indicate that this V6 hybrid powertrain will have a full electric range of 30km and will produce CO2 emissions as low as 130g/km.
Also the V6 plug-in hybrid can reach from 0 to 100 kmph under five seconds. This step of Bentley, of considering the development of a hybrid and actually working toward saving the environment is pretty commendable. The company has not made any revelations about the approximate time of launch of this hybrid version of EXP 9F but one thing we can be sure of is that, hybrid or not, the Bentley EXP 9F is sure to offer awe-inspiring performance like all other Bentley cars.
