Announced a new generation of racing Bentley Continental GT3

Based on the third-generation Continental coupé, the new Continental GT3 picks up where its predecessor left off when it comes to design and performance.

The standard W12 engine is replaced with a race-proven, twin-turbocharged V8 engine that produces upwards of 550bhp when unrestricted and is paired with a new exhaust system.

The new racing auto uses the road Continental GT's mostly aluminum structure as the foundation for a race-ready weight of less than 1300kg. As it's a racing vehicle, the GT3 has an FIA-apporoved roll cage, six-point safety harness, fire extinguisher and pneumatic jack.

Based on the latest Continental coupe, the vehicle will go on sale from June 2018. All body panels coupe Bentley Continental GT3 new generation is made of carbon fiber (carbon). What will be the price of a sports auto, not yet reported. Downforce is up on before, while both brakes and suspension are described as "new and bespoke".

Built in partnership with Cumbria-based motorsport technical company M-Sport, the GT3 keeps most of the base car's aluminium structure but the overall weight of the auto is reduced to less than 1,300kg.
