Bentley stunned the Geneva motor show with Project Hunaudieres, named after the famous straight on the Le Mans circuit which leads into Mulsanne corner another name used for a great Bentley. The show car has been created to demonstrate one direction in which the marque could develop with the resources of its new parent Volkswagen. Acting chief executive Tony Gott said the super-car project, for the moment dubbed ‘a technical test bed’, aimed to recapture the spirit of the Le Man winning Bentleys of the 1920s. It has an engine ‘true to the Bentley lineage’ 8-litres and 16 cylinders developing 623bhp and 760Nm of torque.
