Bentley Continental GT3-R: 2015 Best Ultra-Luxury

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

I remember when Bentley launched the Continental GT. It was blindingly fast without sacrificing any of the trademark brand luxury.

Now there is an even faster version, the GT3-R, with all the makings of another Bentley superstar.

Over the past year or so, Bentley has been immersed in the development of the GT3 racing car. The program has already had huge success in the worldwide sportscar scene, with a great transfer of technology that benefits us. That race car is the genesis for the GT3-R that you and I can go and buy.

Power again plays a central role with a twin-turbo V-8 developing 572 horsepower. What makes it even more potent is a 220 pound weight loss and shorter gearing to get things going faster. When you think about it, 0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds is mind-blowing for a car of this size but you can thank the all-wheel drive-system and torque vectoring for that.

I love the interior, it is somehow still very Bentley and stylish but with a cool racing flair, which is pretty much the perfect combination.
