British car manufacturer Bentley for a long time has a problem with his image. When Bentley is mentioned most people think of a luxury sedan that is large and comfortable. But these sedans are usually slow and sluggish. Bentley wants to change its image and for a while offering Continental GT version of the sedan. This model can be difficult to cope with competition from rival Aston Martin. Bentley has recently introduced Bentley Continental GT3-R, which they say is the fastest and most dynamic car in the long history of the company that is supposed to be the first model with the new “luxury performance” strategy Bentley.
Bentley Continental GT3-R engine
Bentley Continental GT3-R under the hood has 4.0L twin-turbo V8 engine, which now develops 572 hp and even 699 Nm of torque at just 1,700 rpm. Power is transmitted to all four wheels via the eight-speed automatic gearbox, which is specially modified with shorter speeds. Maximum speed is still not known. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h takes 3.6 seconds.
Bentley Continental GT3-R redesign
The changes brought about by Bentely GT3-R in addition to the more powerful engine are suspension and brakes which have been modified so that the model can overcome all the requirements of driving on the track. Model Bentley Continental GT3-R is lighter by 100 kg and that is achieved using lighter materials. All specimens will be available only in white color, but customers will be able to choose a few graphics. Much larger changes in the interior, where the rear seats removed, the front sports and covered with the highest quality leather.
Bentley also announced several new models, such as the company’s first SUV and replacement models for the Continental Flying Spur. In any case, if the GT3-R example of what is yet to ensue from the British car manufacturers, the competition should be worried. GT3-R is able to retain all the luxury features of the past with new performances, so there is no doubt that all specimens be quickly sell out.
