Rolls-Royce-Bentley Six and Three-Quarter Litre V8

Today we bid a belated farewell to a legend of an engine, the Six and Three-Quarter Litre V8. In production since 1959 at the factory in Crewe, The L-series V8 had several different displacements and powered many different luxury vehicles. And some boats. Your author only realized this engine had met its end.

Rolls-Royce builds several most prestigious running Rolls-Royces with the V8 engine, which has a volume of 606-litres. Small, light but powerful. The Rolls-Royce-Bentley Six and Three-Quarter Litre V8 were first produced in 1925. It has been used by Bentley and Rolls-Royce brands ever since then. The engine includes four valves per cylinder and is able to be tuned to the ideal power output for different driving conditions and terrain.

The V8 engine is a configuration of an internal combustion engine with eight cylinders that are arranged in two banks of four cylinders on each side of the crankshaft. It is relatively compact and smooth, with a specific power output of between 180 and 200 kW (273–288 hp) or more, depending upon piston displacement.

V8 engines are very powerful. The disadvantage of V8 engines is that their output can cause problems because emissions from the combustion can be so overwhelming that they foul inlets downstream.

The Rolls-Royce-Bentley Six and Three-Quarter Litre V8 was introduced in 1923 and later updated in 1926. Though of a complex design, one issue with this engine is that it cannot easily be converted from petrol to diesel – so diesel will gradually replace petrol cars.

The Rolls-Royce-Bentley Six and Three-Quarter Litre V8 are an 8, cylinder, litre engine that was introduced in 1915. It is the most powerful engine of its type ever produced in a car, with torque from 2000 to 6000 Nm.

The company’s most important piece of equipment is the V8 engine, which provides power to the car’s drivetrain. The V8 engine was introduced in 1929 and quickly became a standard feature in all Rolls-Royces.

In 1928 Rolls-Royce decided to produce a larger engine for the Phantom II, the first six and three-quarter litre V8. It used the same chassis design as the four and a quarter litre engine, but had a new four cylinder vertical crankcase. This allowed for more mounting points for an enlarged camshaft and bigger valves that would give up to 10% increase in power.
