Bentley reveals Continental GT3 details at global debut

2013-07-18 16:40


Bentley debuts its new Continental GT3 race car at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed on 12 July, 2013, unveiling a racing machine set to explore the extreme potential of Bentley's iconic Grand Tourer, the Continental GT.

Member of the Board for Engineering, Rolf Frech, comments: "The Continental GT3 exploits the incredible performance beneath the skin of every Continental GT. We've removed over 1000 kilograms of weight, reconfigured our 4.0-litre V8 to produce 600 bhp in race specification, and developed a comprehensive aerodynamic package to ensure that we perform competitively. We are now looking forward to getting the car on the track and proving its potential."

The Continental GT3 is powered by a race-prepared and dry-sump version of Bentley's powerful but efficient 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8, with many components carried over from the road-going engine. Developing up to 600 bhp in unrestricted race configuration via a motorsport engine management system, the V8 provides the GT3 with highly competitive power in a compact and lightweight package that's perfect for racing.
