Bentley Turned The Continental Into A GT3 Track Monster

Sending the Continental to fat camp was a great idea for Bentley. They ended up with a car that is over 2,200 pounds lighter and has 600 horsepower on tap. Sounds like your sort of a British luxury car? Welcome to the club!

You've seen plenty of the GT3 Continental before. Bentley's new weapon for the FIA GT3 category was at the Paris Motor Show and we also told you that they managed to save a 1989 Mazda Miata's weight compared to the road car.


Now, it's time for more pictures and the bare facts:
