New Bentley Continental GT3 racer revealed

Bentley has unveiled the new Continental GT3 race vehicle, which is ready to compete in the 2018 motorsport season.

As for the road Bentley Continental GT, the third generation of the auto was presented to the public in August of this year, and the design of the model is not significantly different from last generation.

The second-generation Continental GT3 has been designed in collaboration with M-Sport, the same firm responsible for the first-gen auto.

The road-going Continental GT is using a biturbo W12 6.0-liter engine packing 626 horsepower, but the sporty brother has opted for an engine swap in the form of an evolution of the 4.0-liter V8 now packing a new dry sump, intake, and exhaust. This new race auto uses a structure that's mostly aluminum, allowing it to weigh in under 2,866 lbs.

It improved, as 77 investors sold DIS shares while 606 reduced holdings. 48 funds opened positions while 44 raised stakes. Meanwhile, tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite Index underperformed the broader markets and slipped over 65-points to 6,723.

'We have been able to take the weight saving in the road vehicle and transfer that to the race auto, ' said Gush. The car's debut will be in the first round of the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup at Monza, where it will aim to begin a defence of the 2017 crown won by the old auto. The team will now continue development work, which will include 24-hour race simulations. A price for the auto has yet to be announced, but Gush promised that it would be "competitive". This is the second-generation of the Continental GT3, with the previous iteration of the rather large racecar having scored 120 podiums and 45 wins in 528 races entered. The new Continental GT will make its race debut at the opening round of the 2018 Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup at Monza.

At present the second-gen Continental GT3 is completing a six-month testing programme in France, Portugal and the United Kingdom, which will eventually include a 24-hour race simulation too.

Bentley will confirm drivers at a later date, but Gush said he was "aiming for a largely unchanged line-up".
