Bentley Continental GT3
A decade after the company’s 24 Hours of Le Mans win, Bentley’s new Continental GT3 race car is set to make its competitive debut at this year’s Gulf 12 Hours two-part endurance race in Abu Dhabi.

Built in partnership with Malcolm Wilson’s M-Sport outfit, the Continental GT3 is powered by a race-spec version of the road car’s 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 using Cosworth management and a dry-sump system. Producing 447 kW (600 hp) in unrestricted guise, power is sent to the rear wheels via a carbon fibre propshaft connected to an Xtrac six-speed sequential transmission with a limited slip differential, while flappy paddles on the steering wheel actuate the pneumatic shift system.

The race will take place on December 13 at Yas Marina circuit.
