Bentley Continental GT3: A Legend of the Racing Track

The original Bentley Continental GT3 marks Bentley's return to motorsport after a ten-year break. Bentley developed the GT3 based on the second generation of the Continental GT, which was produced from 2011 to 2018. The modification for racing was developed by a specialized team led by Brian Gush, who was responsible for Bentley's victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2003. The goal was to combine Bentley's classic luxury image with the performance of a real racing car.

Technical Data and Superior Performance of the Bentley Continental GT3

The Bentley Continental GT3 is equipped with a 4.0-liter V8 twin-turbo engine that delivers up to 550 horsepower. The engine is mated to a sequential 6-speed racing gearbox, ensuring impressive power transfer. The conversion to rear-wheel drive and extensive suspension adjustments made the car a true racing beast. Weighing around 1,300 kilograms (2,866 pounds), achieved through the intensive use of carbon fibers, the GT3 is much lighter than its road-going version. Designer Dirk van Braeckel was responsible for the styling and aerodynamic enhancements, ensuring that the high-performance components seamlessly integrated into the iconic design.
