Bentley will use this year Pebble Beach Concurs d`Elegance to introduce the new Continental GT3-R , the street version of the powerful GT3 race car.

Approved for the road, the GT3-R is dressed in white paint, Glacier White, and features a new aerodynamic body kit, with 21 inch alloy wheels. The look is complemented by green graphics.

The fastest accelerating Bentley ever produced, as the company states in its press release, is using a 4.0 liter V8 petrol engine, tuned to offer 572 bhp and 512 lb-ft of torque.

The increase in power also comes with a decrease in weight. The Bentley Continental GT3-R is 220 lb easier. This recipe is good for a 0 to 60 mph time of just 3.6 seconds, almost the same as Ferrari 458 Italia.

The car will be built by Bentley motorsport division and the production will be limited to only 300 units. 99 of these units will be bound for the US market with a starting price of $337,000 USD.
