Bentley Continental GT3 to get twin-turbo V8 image

Bentley has recently announced its plans to offer a twin-turbo V8 engine under the hood of the impressive Continental GT3.

After it was officially presented to the public back in 2012, during the Paris Motor Show, in a world premiere, the Bentley Continental GT3 is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the company announcing new details on the final production model, which will enter competition later on this year. The Bentley Continental GT3 will get a double withsbone suspension system, competition brakes, FIA approved roll cage, racing steering wheel, carbon fiber racing seat and some other tweaks.

The interior of the car has been stripped out and some carbon fiber components, like the boot lid, bonnet and doors, have been applied onto the model, helping it weigh more than 1,000 kg less than the road going version. The Bentley Continental GT3 will be powered by a racing version of the 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8 engine, which normally produces 500 HP (373 kW) and 660 Nm of torque (487 lb-ft). The unit is mated to a six-speed sequential racing transmission, sending power to the rear wheels. Additional details on the model are limited for the moment.
