Home » Bentley » The Next Generation Supercar Equals Bentley Continental GT3

Well, just when we all thought Bentley continental coupe couldn’t accommodate another variant, the company shocked us all with the continental GT3. The GT3 concept car was unveiled back in 2012 at the Paris Auto Show but it wasn’t until 2013 that the thunder beast made a debut in Sussex, England during the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Before you get excited yet, let me mention that the big baby from Bentley isn’t meant for civilians. This machine is a racing supercar that could be compared to the F1 but much better in looks.

Performance Of Bentley Continental GT3

Looking under the hood of the GT3, you can’t help but be blown away by the awesome specs it packs. This racing machine has a 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8 engine positioned to the rear of the engine bay and delivers a cool 600 HP. The drive-train is a carbon fiber prop shaft with limited slip differential, while the transmission is a rear wheel drive, steering wheel mounted paddle operated on a pneumatic gear shift, racing clutch and Xtrac 6-speed sequential trans-axle gearbox.

Suspension and Brakes

The racing beast sits on 18-inch OZ wheels with Brembo braking system that features 6-piston front calipers and 4-piston back calipers doing the stopping. The company went an extra mile and installed double-wishbone suspension with 4-way adjustable racing dampers. The steeling system is hydraulic power assisted while brakes incorporate driver-adjustable bias.

Interior Design

The manufacture had an aim of reducing the total weight of the car as much as possible, with this in mind, a lot of those luxury features installed on high end cars were evidently missing. The leather and wood trim characteristic of Bentley, advanced refinement materials and much more were omitted. By doing this the car achieved its set goal of weighing just less than 2866 pounds. Despite being made for the race track, the GT3 received handcrafted steering wheel, seats and door pulls.

Exterior Design

The final production car looks very similar to the prototype unveiled the previous year, but with a more aggressive aerodynamic package to help maximize the down force when the car is moving fast since it weighs less than a normal race car. The package has a carbon fiber splitter that enhances the vehicles down force, ensuring stability and a top-mounted fiber rear wing. To avoid the possibility of the engine overheating, the bonnet, fenders, bumpers and sills were updated.

One very noticeable feature of this race machine is the huge spoiler protruding from its back. My guess was that it was placed there to make the car appear sportier, but I just think they overdid a little. From the front, the race car looks like all other Bentley models with the grill and headlights location unchanged.

Price

As I had mentioned earlier, the GT3 is not civilian car. Although the prices have not been known yet since its FIA homologation is still pending, we can expect the price to be around $500,000.

Conclusion

The Bentley Continental GT3 delivers awesome performance with an acceleration and top speed level that is in line with the current standards. The car is updated with the latest technological advancements making it a race car to watch on the track. Bentley surely hasn’t disappointed its fans.
