Article by Christian Andrei, on August 13, 2014

Bentley Continental GT3-R is ready to make its North American debut at 2014 Pebble Beach as the most dynamic and fastest-accelerating product built by the company. For those who don’t know, the new Continental GT3-R is inspired by the Continental GT3 race car and carries a 4.0-liter V8 twin-turbo V8 that develops 572 bhp and 516 lb-ft of torque.

Thanks to a weight drop of 220 lb and shorter gearing, the Bentley Continental GT3-R is able to hit 60 mph (96 km/h) from a standstill in 3.6 seconds. Regarding the design, the Continental GT3-R features a Glacier White finish, as well as two-tone green graphics that trace the prominent power lines on the side profile.

There is also a new front splitter as well as a new fixed rear wing, both finished in carbon fiber. Other exterior highlights include gloss black headlamp bezels, matrix grille, window surrounds and bumper strips, but also a new set of 21-inch lightweight wheels finished in gloss black.

A new carbon fiber cover is found on the 4.0-liter V8 engine. Inside we only find two seats wrapped in Beluga black leather with diamond-quilted Alcantara. The new Continental GT3-R will only be produced in a limited edition of just 300 units and the United States market will receive 100 of them, while Canada will only receive 4 units.

If you are interested in buying one you’d better know that the Continental GT3-R is priced at $337,000 and dealers are already accepting orders. Deliveries will start in the first quarter of 2015.

Christophe Georges, President and CEO, Bentley Motors, Inc. comments: “Pebble Beach is the perfect location for the debut of the rarest and most dynamic Continental GT, the GT3-R. It is a testament to the Bentley trademarks of luxury and performance and we’re excited to share it with the friends of Bentley during this gathering of fine automobiles.”
