Bentley has revealed the wildest take yet on its big Continental GT, in the form of the new GT3-R coupe.

Inspired by the company’s GT3 track car, the R is a racer for the road, adding a number of performance enhancements while hanging on the GT’s street-legal status.

Just 300 of the new GT3-R cars will be built, but Bentley promises that each buyer will step into “the most dynamic Bentley road car in history”. With the astonishing GT Speed already available, that’s really saying something.

Power in the GT3-R is provided by an enhanced version of Bentley’s 4.0 litre twin-turbo V8, delivering 426kW and 700Nm of torque.

Now, that’s less than the GT Speed’s 460kW and 800Nm, but thanks in part to a 100kg weight-loss regime, the GT3-R is faster with a 0-100km/h time of 3.8 seconds - compared to 4.2 seconds in the GT Speed.

The big coupe’s acceleration is also helped by its ZF eight-speed auto tweaked for shorter gearing, again sending power to all four wheels - but this time with a torque vectoring system.

There’s also electronic stability control and a chassis tuned for better than ever cornering ability, getting the big 2195kg GT3-R through turns quicker than any Continental GT before it.

Styling and aero tweaks include a carbon-fibre front splitter and fixed rear wing, along with bonnet vents and - for all 300 examples - a Glacier White finish with green graphics and highlights inside and out.

There’s also 21-inch lightweight alloy wheels and huge 420mm front brakes gripped by eight-piston calipers. The rear gets 356mm discs - larger than the front discs on many of today’s performance cars.

The GT3-R will debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed next week, with customer deliveries to begin later in the year.

Australian availability has not been confirmed, but with just 300 planned, our allotment will likely be ‘not many, if any’.
