New Bentley Continental GT3 racer revealed

Bentley's twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 scores a new dry-sump design and a new intake and exhaust system. Based on the latest Continental coupe, the vehicle will go on sale from June 2018. This is the second-generation of the Continental GT3, with the previous iteration of the rather large racecar having scored 120 podiums and 45 wins in 528 races entered.

Based on the Bentley Continental GT road auto, the new Continental GT3 race vehicle is a sharper, harder, lighter version of the British luxo-GT. Unfortunately, detailed information about the new product has not yet been disclosed, but the developers noted that the model will debut in the racing series 2018.

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

The GT3 auto is based on the new Continental GT road vehicle and uses its mostly aluminum structure along with a new development of the manufacturer's four-liter twin-turbo V8 engine. It's also not clear which teams plan on fielding the new Continental GT3 next season.

Brimmed with wood and leather as standard, the Bentley Continental GT may not be the most obvious choice for a race auto, but the crew from Crewe has been fielding the grand tourer in worldwide GT3-class racing since 2013. 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.

M-Sport will contest the Blancpain Endurance Cup and the Intercontinental GT Challenge, which incorporates four GT3 long-distance races around the world. It is noted that the model created on the basis of the road version of the Bentley Continental GT the new generation, but has several unique features focused on track use.

Bentley says testing sessions are already underway, and plans to run a full 24-hour race simulation with the vehicle to make sure it's up for the challenge of modern endurance racing. Expect a driver line up very soon, and private teams can get their hands on one from June.
