On the 10th anniversary of the unveiling of the Continental GT concept, Bentley has returned to the world of motorsport with the Continental GT3, a ruthless, luxurious race car currently being developed at the company’s factory in Crewe.

The GT3 marks SBentley’s return to the racetrack for the first time since its historic sixth Le Mans victory in 2003 and follows the company’s founding motorsport philosophy of developing racing cars from their road-going counterparts.

Equipped for endurance as well as “outright speed”, Bentley’s newest thoroughbred badass will be eligible to race in a range of race series and events, up to and including 24-hour marathons, beginning at the end of next year.

And if anything it’ll probably be even faster than it looks….
