At the 2012 Paris International Auto Salon Bentley announced they were planning a return to the race track with the unveiling of the Continental GT3 race car concept. The stripped-back Continental GT3 represents the latest, most fearsome incarnation of Bentley’s racing tradition. The Continental GT3 takes the essence of the Continental GT and pushes it to its limit. The body is almost identical, but with doors, boot lid and bonnet re-made in carbon fibre. In fact over 1,000kg of weight has been lost.
The Continental GT3 made its first appearance at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed and took part in the famous Goodwood Hill Climb. In December 2013, the Continental GT3 with Team M-Sport made its test race debut at the Gulf 12 Hours of Abu Dhabi and finished in 4th place. In the Continental GT3, the spirit of the Bentley Boys lives on.
Engine: Twin-Turbo, 4.0-litre V8 Power: approximately 600bhp
