Bentley is set to explore the racing potential of Bentley's iconic Grand Tourer with the Continental GT3.

The 2014 Continental GT3 Race Car made its official running debut on the famous Goodwood Festival of Speed Hillclimb in 2013 before a competitive debut at the 2013 Gulf 12 Hours in Abu Dhabi on 13th December 2013.

The Continental GT3 is powered by a race-prepared and dry-sump version of Bentley's powerful 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, with many components carried over from the road-going engine. Developing up to 600 hp 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. Power is transmitted to the rear wheels via a carbon fiber propshaft to an Xtrac six-speed sequential gearbox with a limited slip differential, mounted as a transaxle for optimized weight distribution. Gear actuations are completed via a pneumatic shift system, controlled by paddles mounted to the steering wheel.

A double wishbone suspension configuration front and rear, fitted with four-way adjustable racing dampers, replaces the standard road-car air springs. The steering system features hydraulic power-assistance, while braking is via ventilated iron discs combined with six-piston calipers on the front and four-piston calipers on the rear.
