According to the company, Bentley Azure, equipped with V-8 6.75 litre twin turbo-charged engine having torque generating capacity of 875 Nm, is capable to accelerate at the speed from 0-100 Km/hr within 5.6 seconds.
Similarly, 'Continental GTC' is equiped with 6.0 ltr twin-turbo charged engine which propels the car from 0-90 Km/hr within 4.8 seconds.
