- Scale guide
The Bentley Continental GT3 was a rear-wheel-drive race-configured version of Bentley’s second-generation Continental GT V8 coupe. Using a development of the highly efficient Bentley 4.0 litre twin-turbo V8 engine, the GT3 takes the essence of the iconic Continental GT and pushed it to the limit. More than 1000 kg of weight was eliminated by utilising a mostly aluminium structure and removing the equipment and parts that made the road-going Continental such a luxurious grand tourer. Double glazing, veneer and leather trim, over fifty ECUs and extensive electrical systems - all went in the relentless pursuit of speed.
Designed by a specialist team of engineers from Bentley Motors supported by the Continental GT3 Technical Partner, M-Sport Ltd., Bentley Motorsport first entered full competition races in the Blancpain GT Series in 2014, winning its first race at Silverstone in May. The GT3 won the 2015 Blancpain GT Sprint Series championship with drivers Vincent Abril and Maximilian Buhk, whilst in the GT Endurance Series, it came just 3 points shy of winning both the Teams’ and the Drivers’ Championships, earning second place in both.
Overall, the race car would score Bentley over 120 podiums and 45 wins around the world. W.O. Bentley’s mantra was to build a “good car, fast car, best in its class” and Bentley would prove to be continuing his legacy with the Continental GT3.
