Bentley Continental GT3 concept - Le Mans racer

Bentley is returning to competition with this GT3 race car version of the GT Speed.

The GT Speed is powered by a 6 litre W12 engine that has 616bhp and does 0-60 in 4 seconds.  It also weighs 2320kg.

Bentley's challenge will be to shave some of that weight off in order for the GT3 to become a competitive race car.  The company hopes to enter competition in 2013 in GT racing events as well as Le Mans.

We're also loving the livery and hope Bentley retains it when the cars appear on track.  The union flag on the GT3's flanks is a particularly nice touch.

It should sound incredible with all the muffling removed.  We look forward to seeing the Bentley Continental GT3 trackside at the Mulsanne corner.
