Ahead of its official debut at the 2018 motorsport season, Bentley Motorsport has revealed the second-generation Continental GT3 racecar. The current generation Continental GT3 has outshined as a championship-winning endurance racer, which has scored 120 podiums and 45 wins across 528 races around the world till date. The upcoming model further claims to offer improved performance and handling.

Speaking on the occasion, Bentley's Director of Motorsport, Brian Gush said, "After four years of success with our Continental GT3, we're excited to reveal our second-generation car. The new car leaves no area or system untouched in the search for even better performance, and the early test results are promising. The new Continental GT road car has proved to be a great starting point for the development of a new racer, and the engineering development work is true to Bentley's impeccable standards."

The Continental GT3 racecar gets a race-proven 4.0-litre Bentley twin-turbo V8, with a redesigned dry sump system and all-new intake and exhaust systems. The upgraded engine is capable of generating power in excess of 550bhp. The new Bentley Continental GT3 is based on the road car version of the new Continental GT. Although it is based on the existing car, the racecar gets aerodynamic surfaces that have been crafted in the wind tunnel for that additional downforce. Moreover, the new model also gets revised suspension and braking system to handle the additional performance bit.
