Rolls-Royce power outputs

Road & Track points out that the Rolls-Royce policy of never disclosing the power output of its engines has been broken since Gray Marine has concluded an agreement with R.-R. for marketing the current light-alloy V8 power unit in America. The 1962 engine with 8-to-1 c.r. is quoted as developing 240 b.h.p. at 4,200 r.p.m., and the 1963 version, with modified carburation and 9-to-1 c.r.,...

Bentley Facts Sir, Oh dear! Those Bentley production figures again. I thought I had laid all this to rest in "All the pre-war Bentleys — as new" when I wrote that the figures (which I summarise below) superseded all those previously published and must, I think, stand unchallenged for all time. The statement was based on the research work I did in the course of compilation which included, inter...
