Powered by a 4.0 litre engine, the GT3 takes the essence of the iconic Continental GT and pushes it to the limit. More than 1000kg of weight has been eliminated by removing the equipment and parts that make the road-going Continental such a luxurious grand tourer. Double glazing, veneer and leather trim, over fifty ECUs and extensive electrical systems - all have gone in the relentless pursuit of speed.
In tandem with Bentley's technical partner, M-Sport Ltd, the Bentley GT3 team have made numerous radical changes to bring the Continental to the track including: a race-configured version of Bentley's highly efficient 4.0 litre twin-turbo V8 engine; XTRAC six-speed sequential racing gearbox; carbon fibre propshaft; limited slip differential; double wishbone suspension; four-way adjustable dampers; and Brembo competition brakes.
The GT3 retains the iconic silhouette of the Continental GT: in fact, the main body shell is almost a direct carryover. Doors, boot lid and aero-optimized bonnet are now hand-crafted in carbon fibre along with carbon fibre front splitter, rear wing, and fenders.
The GT3 is the culmination of many years of customer feedback that Bentley belongs on the race track and the GT3 is the realisation of the dream held since the launch of the Continental GT.
