It is a drive 12-cylinder to block 6.0 liters , that after more than 13 years of research and development, becomes the engine of the number of cylinders more efficiently so far.

The W12 can deactivate up to 6 cylinders to improve their energy efficiency.

In a move that seems rather to point to consolidate its brand image, the goal set by Volkswagen with its new W12 Twin Turbo 6.0 TSI has been to improve efficiency, which until now was one of his weaknesses more.

To improve in this regard, engineers made use of a dual injection system works directly and indirectly boost a system that uses an twin-scroll turbo, system startup and shutdown Start & Stop , a system for reducing energy losses related to attrition and selective cylinder deactivation. In that sense, the engine is able to deactivate half of its cylinders, pursuant to cut back.

Although the new engine comes as a Volkswagen, who more you will make within the group will be Bentley, as the W12 and have been transformed into its watermark.
