Bentley Continental GT3-R

Bentley announces the rarest and most dynamic member of the esteemed Continental family with the arrival of the new Continental GT3-R. Inspired by the new Continental GT3 race car, the Continental GT3-R is a highly exclusive and unique interpretation of performance-focused luxury, limited to just 300 examples. Bentley engineers have developed a re-tuned version of Bentley’s 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 for this new two-seater GT. The Continental GT3-R is the fastest-accelerating Bentley ever, capable of reaching 60 mph from a standstill in just 3.6 seconds. A new front splitter provides an assertive look to the front of the car, balanced by a new fixed rear wing fitted to the boot lid – both finished in exquisite carbon fiber. The bonnet incorporates two vents to improve the cooling capacity of the powertrain system for repeated accelerations while also invoking the shape of the Continental GT3 racer. The gloss carbon fiber contrasts with the Glacier White paint that all 300 cars will be finished in, and the inspiration of the Continental GT3 race car is highlighted by the use of two-tone green graphics that trace the two power lines to the side profile of the car. The visual appeal of the Continental GT3-R is completed by an all-new lightweight 21″ wheel, machine-forged from high-strength alloy and finished in gloss black.
