Bentley has released the first teaser video of their upcoming turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine.

While there isn't much to see, the clip reveals a "stirring and thunderous" exhaust note which is a "prelude to a potent new Bentley driving experience that begins in 2012."

As we have previously reported, the engine was jointly-developed with Audi and has been tuned to "deliver all the exhilarating power and torque synonymous with the marque." Specifications remain a mystery, but the twin-turbo V8 produces 520 PS (382 kW / 513 hp) and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque in the S8.
