New Bentley Continental GT3

Technical details on the Continental GT3 were not divulged, but it will likely receive power from Bentley's new 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine. Teams that ran the previous version included Dyson Racing, M-Sport and Bentley Team Abt. Teams running Continental GT3's have scored 120 podiums and 45 race victories in 528 races.

"The new vehicle leaves no area or system untouched in the search for even better performance, and the early test results are promising".

Its race debut is at the opening round of the 2018 Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup at Monza in Italy.

Bentley has revealed its new Continental GT3 racecar, a precursor to a hot Continental GT road auto which will likely arrive by 2020.


While the exterior styling is naturally derived from the new model, the race car's underpinnings have benefitted from the update too: aluminium construction is said to have improved the weight distribution, for example.

"The new Continental GT road vehicle has proved to be a great starting point for the development of a new racer, and the engineering development work is true to Bentley's impeccable standards".

The latest Continental has already tested twice at the start of a six-month development programme, which will include a 24-hour endurance simulation. As it's a racing vehicle, the GT3 has an FIA-apporoved roll cage, six-point safety harness, fire extinguisher and pneumatic jack.

It's understood that the manufacturer has decided against fielding entries in the Sprint Cup. The wind tunnel-generated aerodynamic structures are all new, as are the suspension and braking systems. Expect a driver line up very soon, and private teams can get their hands on one from June.
