Bentley Continental GT3

Upgraded Bentley Continental GT3

The upgraded Bentley Continental GT3 is ready for mountain racing, to achieve the fastest time in the modified car category.

The most powerful Bentley ever produced is equipped with a large rear spoiler and other accessories created for this type of mountain race at over 4,000 meters above sea level.

The current record is held by David Donner in a Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport with a time of 9: 36.559. In the 99th annual Pikes Peak race, which will take place in June, the Continental GT3 will be driven by Rhys Millen.

Matthias Rabe said: “We are delighted to be returning to Pikes Peak for the third time – now powered by renewable fuel, as the launch project for another new element of our Beyond100 program.”

The Continental GT3 has a 4.0-liter turbo V8 engine and will use biofuel. “Our powertrain engineers are already researching both biofuels and e-fuels for use by our customers alongside our electrification program – with intermediate steps of adopting renewable fuels at the factory in Crewe and for our company fleet,” Bentley said.

Hybrid versions of all Bentley models will be offered from 2023, and from 2030 the company’s focus will be on electric models.
