Bentley Continental GT3-R to star at Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance

The recently announced Bentley Continental GT3-R is slated to appear at the upcoming Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Limited to only 300 units, the Continental GT3-R is inspired by GT3 racer that’s participating in the Blancpain Endurance Series.

At a glance, the GT3-R is rather similar to the Endurance race car, with plenty of newly added elements such as; a carbon fiber front splitter, GT-inspired rear wing and double intake on the hood. To resemble the race car even more, the GT3-R is instilled two-tone green graphics on the side profile to exude the power lines.

Further inspiration from the racer is reflected in the finishing touches to the exterior: the headlight bezels, matrix grille, window surrounds and bumper strips; all in gloss black. Completing the exterior motifs are the 21-inch gloss black wheels and titanium exhaust.

Inside, the Continental GT3-R has a couple of carbon fiber seats, with Alcantara trims and fine leather materials in and about the cabin. From the Steering, gearknob to door and inner panels, the GT3-R is wrapped in sheer race trimmings with a tinge of luxury. Vivid accent green is also applied as hide color for the seats, instrument panel and surrounding panels. Furthermore, GT3-R badging adorns the center console, passenger-side fascia panel and sill treadplates. Seats’ headrests, meanwhile, get GT3-R emblems in contrast-green thread.

A powerful 4.0-liter V8 powerplant that’s paired to an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission powers the wannabe racer up 572 bhp and 700 Nm of torque. Top speed is estimated to reach an access of 273 km/h, while a 0 – 100 km/h dash is completed in just 3.8 seconds. Complementing the revised powertrain is a further development of Bentley’s renowned all-wheel drive system, which now features torque vectoring for the first time. Together with modified Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and an optimized chassis, the Continental GT3-R is the most dynamic, responsive and involving Bentley road car ever. Other worthy highlights include sports-tuned suspension and Carbon Silicon Carbide Braking system.

The Bentley Continental GT3-R is available in Glacier White only, and is scheduled to star at the Pebble Beach luxury automotive show.
