Hot off the heels of the Continental GT Speed debut, Bentley unveils a GT Speed-based racer that will mark the company's triumphant return to motorsports. Bentley has been out of racing since its Le Mans win in 2003 and hopes to get back on the track by late 2013. Already approved by the FIA, the GT3 adopted a rear-wheel-drive chassis, in accordance to regulations. The aerodynamic kit includes a protruding front splitter, side skirts, and a large rear wing.
The GT Speed, Bentley's fastest road car ever, is essentially an off-track supercar. It's got an all-wheel-drive chassis, with a 60:40 ratio favoring the rear, lowered suspension, and a 616bhp W12 that can get to 60 in 4 seconds with a top speed of 205 mph. A Electronic Stability Programme also ensure a sticky feeling between the driver and the road. Full release after the jump
