Bentley has revealed the GT3 Concept during the 2012 Paris Motor Show, which is previewing a production race car which should enter competition in late next year.

“The clear message from our customers is that Bentley belongs on the racetrack and the Continental GT3 is the realization of a dream we’ve had ever since the launch of the Continental GT. The Continental GT3 is set to show the world what the Continental GT is capable of in its most extreme form, and establishes a solid foundation for Bentley’s long-term motorsport plans”, as the Bentley chairman, Wolfgang Schreiber, said in a statement.

According to the luxury carmaker, the Bentley GT3 Concept is based on the Continental GT Speed and this mode is offering the first looks into a final production race car which will enter competition in late 2013. Bentley didn’t release any technical details on the GT3 Concept except for the fact that it’s coming with rear-wheel drive and the final production version of the model will be FIA compliant and eligible to compete in a variety of events including 24-hour endurance races. Additional details on the Bentley GT3 Concept are limited for the moment and are expected to be announced next year.
