    • APR ECU Upgrades now available for the Bentley 4.0T (Continental GT / Flying Spur) - +293 lb-ft of torque

      We’re excited to announce our ECU Upgrades are now available for the Bentley’s Second Generation Continental GT V8, Continental GT V8 S, Flying Spur V8, and Flying Spur V8 S! This upgrade increases power and torque substantially. Expect 635-721 HP with 668-849 FT-LBS of torque, depending on octane (91, 93, 100, or 104).


      Details: goapr.io/bent40t

      This translates to +96-220 HP, with +123-311 FT-LBS of torque over stock out of the V8! Optionally we offer a Cylinder On Demand (COD) delete that allows the engine to say running in V8 mode smoothly at all times. Best of all, APR’s proven track record over the past 6 years with this motor on the Audi S6, RS6, S7, A8, S8, and RS7 gives us the confidence to also offer this ECU Upgrade with a limited powertrain warranty for the term limit of your vehicle’s factory warranty. We call it APR Plus, and it offers 635 HP with 668 FT-LBS and only requires using 91 octane or higher.

      This ECU Upgrade is simple to install. Just visit any APR Dealer and they will install it to your factory ECU. No other hardware modifications are required, and the ECU doesn’t need to be removed from the vehicle. It’s fully compatible with APR Mobile, which allows you to use your smartphone to cycle through the installed programs and octanes.

        So this is for the cars with the Porsche derived V8? The Urus, Panamera Turbo, C8 RS6/RS7 all share this same basic architecture, right?

        A Bentley isn't really a sleeper but man one of these boats could surprise some people with a tune. The gains are huge!

        @Arin@APR nevermind, well done.

        That's an almost 300 lb-ft of torque gain on race gas... holy crap.

        Maybe someone could educate me, but how does the change from 100 to 104 octane result in an almost 100 lb-ft increase in torque? (When 91 to 93 is barely 12 lb-ft)

        Oxygen and balls. Mostly balls.

        To clarify, the fuel is oxygenated, which helps make power. On top of that, more octane. Beyond that, it's the 104 file - we didn't hold back.
