Following the W12-engined versions of the third incarnation of the Continental GT, Bentley have now introduced the V8 in both Coupe and Convertible form. Especially for the third generation Continental GT, the twin-turbo V8 has been reworked and now produces 542bhp, which is a 42bhp increase over the previous model. Deliveries of the new Continental GT V8 in the United States will start in the third quarter of 2019, while the rest of the world will have to wait until 2020.
In the first years of Group C racing, the newly developed four-litre DFL version of the Ford Cosworth DFV engine powered a choice of cars. First and foremost, Ford's own C100, which was raced in 1981 and 1982 by a factory team. The initial design was by Len Bailey but this was first refined by John Thompson, who created a honeycomb aluminium monocoque and subsequently by Tony Southgate but his Mk3 version never raced. Ultimately, the car was no success in the World Championship but did do remarkably well in the DRM and Interserie championships. The featured example has the best track record of all and even briefly led at Le Mans in 1982 ahead of the Porsche 956s.
Another Group C car of the era using the DFL was the Rondeau M482. Built by the 1980 Le Mans winning team, this was the first Rondeau built with ground effects in mind and used the input from ground-breaking aerodynamicist Max Sardou. Like Ford's own C100, the M482 was rarely competitive and even though one was raced at Le Mans through to 1987, no results of note were scored.
