Bentley Announce Intentions For Goodwood Festival of Speed
Bentley are the latest brand to announce their plans for the 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
They’ll mark the event by giving a brand new Bentley its international debut.
The new car will appear in both the Supercar Run up Goodwood Hilland, of course, on Bentley Motors’ stand.
Beyond that, they’re promising their largest ever presence at the 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
Making its UK premier will be the Bentley EXP 9 F SUV concept (pictured) – designed to be the “fastest and most luxurious SUV in the world”.
Also appearing on stand and hill alike will be the new Bentley Continental GT V8. It comes with an all-new 4.0 litre twin turbo V8 engine which makes it capable of achieving 0-60mph in just 4.6 seconds with a top speed of 188mph.
Despite this, it still manages a remarkable economy. Bentley claim that it will be capable of running over 500 miles on a single tank.
Meanwhile, two cars from Bentley’s Le Mans heritage will provide a blast from the past. The Bentley Speed 8, victorious at the 2003 Le Mans 24 Hours, will make two runs per day. So too will the 4½-litre supercharged “Birkin Blower”.
The 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed runs from Friday 29th June to Sunday 1st July.
