Bentley Continental GT3 to Get Street-Legal Version
The car could keep the twin-turbo 6.0-liter W12 engine, which would be pushed to around 700 hp, in order to allow it to deal with cars like the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta and the Lamborghini Aventador.
The second possibility, which has slimmer chances to become a reality, is that the car would be powered by the new 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that was developed together with Audi. If this does become a reality could see Bentley splitting its Continental range, so we could get a W12-powered W12 side and a V8 side that would be focused towards performance delivery.
However, the road-going version will probably ditch the GT3 version’s rear-wheel drive in order to keep the 4WD layout that defines the Continental range. As for the interior, this will be stripped down, but still luxurious. For example, you won’t see any rollcage, as such a feature is considered to be to extreme for Bentley owners.
Bentley should build around 300 units of the monster over a period of one year, with the game expected to start form 2014.
