Created as a classic skunkworks project by a small team within Bentley Motors, at launch the GT3-R was designed to be the most driver-focused car Bentley had ever made.

The 4-litre twin-turbo V8 is carried over from the V8 Conti GT although new turbochargers lift peak output by around 10 per cent to 572bhp at 6000rpm. Those turbos are ‘blueprinted’ for an especially tight fit of the turbine within the housing, which promotes a better response, reducing the time taken to spool up.  The eight-speed ZF automatic gearbox has a shortened final drive ratio for much more urgent straight-line acceleration resulting in the GT3-R hitting 62mph from rest in 3.8 seconds and making it the fastest accelerating Bentley ever.

Weight loss through the use of carbon-ceramic brakes as standard, an Akrapovic titanium exhaust system, carbon fibre interior panels, lightweight forged alloy wheels and the deletion of the rear seats means some 100kg has been saved vs. a comparable ‘standard’ Continental.  The electronic stability control system has been retuned, while torque-vectoring – a first for Bentley – tweaks the inside rear brake during cornering to help the car turn into the bend.

What’s it like to drive?

Never underestimate What’s the transformative effects of an exhaust system on an engine’s character. The V8 is immediately more vocal and expressive, spitting out an authentic eight-cylinder warble under load, with violent pops and crackles on the overrun.

The GT3-R isn’t just louder under full throttle, though; it’s also much more forceful in the way it accelerates. It matches the W12 models for straight-line thrust in the mid-range, but the V8 also feels more alert and keener at the top end.

The extensive weight loss in combination with the torque-vectoring system and the stiffer chassis settings it makes the GT3-R the most agile and responsive Bentley and as one of only 300 made worldwide (and thought to be fewer than 35 for the UK market) among the most exclusive.
