It is hard to believe that Bentley’s 2-door luxury namplate is almost 20 years old. With competition in this segment as hot as ever, they chose to think outside the box to generate buzz for their latest achievement. That’s why your GT Speed awaits as a prize in the mobile game.

Real Racing 3 began down under in 2013. By showcasing the world’s most famous tracks, it has been downloaded over 500 million times. With 13 billion races and counting, players will soon learn what this car is capable of.

In real life, we are treated to a new flavor of Bentley's familiar W12 that offers 664 lb-ft of torque (900 Nm) and 650 horsepower to all wheels. Rear-steering has been revised to act faster, and it can now turn up to 4 degrees in either direction. It works in collaboration with the latest electronic differentials to offer incredible grip in any situation.

In comfort mode you will have 36% of power sent to the front wheels. Sport mode drops this to 28% and allows for more oversteer, and if that’s not enough, the ESC can be disabled for a purely analog experience. Yes, it’s a big car, but you will have 17.3” (440mm) carbon-ceramic brakes with 10-piston calipers! Losing the cast iron rotors dropped 77 lbs compared to its predecessor.

Back in 2018 I was compiling the DuPont Registry Exotic Car Buyer’s Guide and Bentley offered almost no information on the Continental SuperSports. After experiencing what 700 horsepower could do to a hefty body, I realized that their dedicated customers don’t need to be sold on it. Leaving room for a new SuperSports offers the potential to offer the Continental in 3 trim levels, a smart move given the brand's popularity. 

Now with the ability to reach 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, download Real Racing 3 from your app store before Sunday. This opportunity will be gone after a week, so tell us how you like it in the comments below and stay with us for all your Bentley news.
