Displacement10.8 l

An improved version of the French Clerget engine, built on licence. It has aluminium cylinders and pistons (apart from steel cylinder heads) which limited the engine's weight. This feature led also to the decreasing of the engine/propeller unit's torque.

The Bentley BR.1 may be seen on the Sopwith F.1 Camel fighter.
