Bentley Continental GT3 race auto revealed

Bentley Continental GT3 race auto revealed

The package will be made to adhere to global GT3 regulations, so statistics such as power output won't be available for a little while longer. Well, the new Continental GT is out, and Bentley has wasted no time turning it into a GT3 race-ready track monster. With a new dry-sump system, new intake system and new exhaust system, the new Continental GT3 has unrestricted power rated at 550 bhp.

What do you think of the new Bentley Continental GT3? The vehicle has been developed by M-Sport - which was responsible for the original Continental GT3 that first raced at the end of 2013 - in conjunction with Bentley Motorsport at the company's headquarters in Crewe.

"The new vehicle leaves no area or system untouched in the search for even better performance, and the early test results are promising". It has a lot to live up to as well, with the outgoing GT3 having achieved 45 wins and 120 podiums in 528 races; it's a Blancpain GT champion too.

Bentley hasn't revealed exact weight figures, but says the new GT3 will weigh "significantly less than 1300 kg (2866 pounds)". The new reconfigured track suspension and racing brakes.

The car's debut will be in the first round of the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup at Monza, where it will aim to begin a defence of the 2017 crown won by the old auto. This is the new Bentley Continental GT3 racer - Crewe's latest stripped out track auto that's here to destroy whatever's in its path with imperious grace.

Bentley Motorsport boss Brian Gush said: 'After four years of success with our Continental GT3, we're excited to reveal our second-generation auto.

The racecar is already in a six-month test program in the UK, France and Portugal.
