Bentley Shows New Continental GT3 Race Car

  • Published On: 20 November 2017

The track-focused Continental GT3 weighs is powered by a 550hp V8 engine.

The new track-ready model gives us a preview of what to expect on the upcoming Continental GT road car that will go on sale in 2020.

The same 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 that powers the Continental GT V8 sits under the hood of this car. However, it has been tuned to make 550hp here. Bentley has collaborated with BMW’s M-Sport when producing this car. Bentley claims this car is really light, in fact, it’s a total of 1,300kg lighter than the previous GT3 and compared to the road-going W12 car’s 2250kg, this is a massive decrease.

The aggressive body work features a deep front spoiler, wide wheel arches, aerodynamic fins and a huge rear wing. On the inside, there’s an FIA-spec roll-cage and six-point harness, while mechanical upgrades include a lightweight racing battery, race-spec ABS and traction control, a carbon-fibre propshaft and four-way adjustable racing dampers.

It will make its racing debut at the opening round of the 2018 Blancpain Cup at Monza on April 21, 2018.
