The Bentley Continental GT3 was one of the stars at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed. It was also the best looking Continental ever, until now.
The new Bentley Continental GT3-R was inspired by its racer sibling and Bentley seems to have pulled a masterstroke. It looks awesome.
The bonnet vents, carbon fibre wing, gloss black details, forged alloy wheels and Glacier White paint with two tone green decals all serve to make it a stunner.
Under the skin the GT3-R gets a retuned version of the 4-litre twin-turbo V8 that produces 572bhp and 700Nm/516lb ft of torque.
This is enough for 0-60mph in 3.6 seconds and a limited top speed of 170mph.
Torque vectoring, air springs and dampers and Carbon Silicon Carbide with 420mm discs and 8-pot callipers make this the fastest and most track focussed road-going Bentley to date. Mind you it's impossible to escape the big Bentley's 2,195kg kerb weight.
The price will be revealed at its Goodwood FoS launch. If you want one you'd better get in quickly as only 300 are being made.
