Bentley has unveiled a brand-new GT3-spec Continental GT racing auto ahead of the 2018 racing season. The previous generation Continental GT3 was a championship victor in the endurance racing world with 120 podiums and 45 wins across 528 races globally.

The 2018 Continental GT3 racing auto has already undergone six months of testing ahead of the 2018 campaign, which includes the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup where Bentley Motorsport reign as the defending teams champions. The second-generation Continental GT3 comes off the back of four successful years with the first-gen auto, and will continue the brand's competitive efforts in endurance racing.

The new racing auto uses the road Continental GT's mostly aluminum structure as the foundation for a race-ready weight of less than 1300kg. The new vehicle leaves no area or system untouched in the search for even better performance, and the early tests are promising. The GT3 also sports a brand new intake, exhaust, and dry-sump oil system.

It has already started a six-month test program in the UK, France and Portugal, while it is set to complete 24-hour endurance race simulations soon.
