The silhouette of the GT3-R closely resembles that of the Continental GT. The carbon fibre body is a lot lighter and crafted by hand. It may be light but the shell incorporates an FIA-specification roll cage that is double the strength of standard shells. The profile of the vehicle is enhanced by dynamic 21-inch forged alloy wheels. This two-door coupé is dynamic from all angles, from the imposing front-end to the back of the vehicle with its rear spoiler which is positioned above a motorised boot. The latter provides easy access to luggage and shopping bags. Flashes of green confirm the car’s sporty credentials and the GT3-R legend is emblazoned above the rear wheel arches.
Although pared down for racing purposes, the GTR-3 still offers much to admire in its cabin. Bespoke sport seats offer supreme comfort and support at high speeds. They are fashioned in diamond-quilted Alcantara, a pattern that is echoed on the interior doors. Door casings are created from fine-lacquered carbon fibre. A vivid green hue informs the interior and highlights the streamlined design of the dashboard, steering wheel, door panels and elsewhere, contrasting with black leather and Alcantara upholstery.
A race-configured 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine features a six-speed sequential racing gearbox. Double-wishbone suspension at the front and rear provides near-perfect camber control that is ideal for sports vehicles. Four-way adjustable dampers can be fine-tuned to deal effortlessly with cornering, high speeds, bumps in the road and more. The Continental GT3-R’s competition-level brakes last longer than most and produce rapid braking when you need it. The engine develops 600bhp and a peak torque of 700Nm. The Bentley Continental GTR-3 can hit 0-60mph in approximately 3.7 seconds and is capable of a top speed of 170mph.
The lightweight body, carbon fibre front splitter, rear wing and body panels all combine to produce an aerodynamic vehicle. Fenders, sills, bonnet and bumpers have also been tweaked to provide a smooth and rapid driving performance.
Dual-zone climate control and satellite navigation are all accessed via the infotainment screen located on the centre console. Both seats are electronically-adjustable so that you and your fellow passenger can find your optimal positions.
A six-CD changer delivers hours of sound. Cruise control enables you to set your speed and concentrate on enjoying the journey.
Anti-Lock Braking System is calibrated to race standards, as is the Traction Control System.
Driver and passenger airbags are positioned around the cabin to protect occupants in the event of a collision.
