Bentley wants to be the last manufacturer of 12-cylinder engines in the world

Bentley sources told Car and Driver that the company will switch to direct injection technology on its 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged W12 engines. Bentley’s upcoming SUV will also use the W12 engine although it will be offered with the smaller 4.0-liter V8 as well as with a hybrid powertrain.
