Bentley Continental Models to Go Flex-Fuel
In brief: All Bentley Continental models will be flex-fuel capable starting with those emerging from the factory in June.
Vehicle in the news
Bentley is on the road towards an entirely bio-fuel capable lineup by 2012. Bentley's twin-turbocharged 6L W12 offers a lot of power and torque, giving it a 0-60 in 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 202mph. Now it can do it on ethanol.
That is just for the Sport model, but this change to include flex-fuel operation applies to the entire Continental model line, which accounts for more than half of the luxury carmaker's sales.
And so ...
New models, including the Mulsanne sedan, will also be E85-capable.
