A ROAD CAR WITH RACING SOUL
Whether driving at the limit or cruising in style, the new Continental GT3-R is truly in a league of its own.
It’s a high-adrenaline experience behind the wheel of the GT3-R. The 8-speed ZF transmission with shorter gear ratio delivers a sharp climb up to top speed, while the high-performance 4-litre V8 engine offers 580 PS of power and 700 Nm of torque. High-boost twin turbochargers make this the fastest-accelerating V8 Bentley ever built, reaching
60 mph/100 km/h in just 3.6/3.8 seconds. But aside from its sheer performance, the GT3-R really shines when it plants this power on the ground.
Specially designed features inspired by our racing programme – such as a carbon fibre bodykit, fixed rear spoiler, and torque vectoring by brake – make this car remarkably responsive, agile and predictable. It corners with sharp precision and continues to deliver grip even at high speeds, offering a level of control and reassurance that many other cars are unable to match. This dynamic character translates well on to the road, thanks to the skilled input of our winning Motorsport division based at the Bentley factory in Crewe.
When it comes to usability, there is one powerful message to deliver to customers: The GT3-R is an incredibly versatile car, allowing you to enjoy low-speed cruises just as much as high-performance drives. The two- seat interior of the GT3-R has been designed for everyday use – satellite navigation, climate control and cruise control make it a practical as well as powerful choice. Although the target market for the GT3-R is wealthy, customers will still want to see value for their investment. The fact that this racing-inspired Continental is comfortable and easy to drive is a tough proposition to ignore.
The GT3-R aims to fill the specialist high-performance road car position like never before. For over 60 years, we have produced some of the world’s most iconic, luxurious grand tourers, and our victorious racing heritage means we have a circuit success story that is just as impressive. This is an exclusive opportunity for a select group of customers to own a car that brings these two worlds together – and a lucrative opportunity for you to be right in the middle.
