Bentley are to make just 300 stripped out, hardcore nutter versions of its Continental.

Powered by a retuned version of Bentley race winning 4.0 litre twin turbo V8 the GT3-R produces 572 BHP and a world spinning 700 Nm of torque. Luckily all that power is still split between all 4 wheels.

Bentley have also managed to shed 100 KG of weight, partly by removing the rear seats.

The GT3-R is the fastest accelerating Bentley EVER thanks to shorter gearing from its 8 speed ZF ‘box it will hit 60 in 3.6 seconds.

You also get torque vectoring, revised stability control and a tuned chassis.

Exterior wise the Conti receives a new front splitter, fixed rear wing, bonnet vents and gloss carbon fibre accents. White is the only colour you can have, this is accented by green graphics like its bigger GT3 racing brother.
