New Bentley Continental GT3 racer revealed

Bentley's new Continental GT3 race auto has been unveiled, and it takes after the newly redesigned Continental road vehicle. The previous generation Continental GT3 was a championship victor in the endurance racing world with 120 podiums and 45 wins across 528 races globally. Previous Bentley racers were known for being on the porky side, but the new auto weighs less than 1,300kg in race-ready form - with power from the car's 4.0-litre V8 rated at "over 550bhp". Since its debut in 2013, the original GT3 has secured 45 wins and 120 podium finishes, and the second-generation wants to raise that bar even higher.

The 2018 Continental GT3 racing vehicle has already undergone six months of testing ahead of the 2018 campaign, which includes the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup where Bentley Motorsport reign as the defending teams champions.

The Continental GT3 shares little with it's road-going brother besides its name and aluminum chassis, helping it weigh less than 2,866 pounds (Bentley won't tell us the exact number), compared with the fully-loaded luxury GT's 5,000-plus pound curb weight.

Bentley first introduced a GT3-spec Continental GT racing vehicle in 2012 and has been a favourite among privateer teams across Europe. With a new dry-sump system, new intake system and new exhaust system, the new Continental GT3 has unrestricted power rated at 550 bhp.

Bentley Team M-Sport has also confirmed its 2018 race plans with two new Continental GT3s set to take on the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup and Intercontinental GT Challenge.

Customers can purchase the new GT3 race vehicle starting June 2018, although Bentley won't say for how much yet.
