One look at the Bentley Continental GT3-R when it is stationary, and everybody will agree that fitting a car as bulky as this with spoilers and nostrils is like putting a rhinoceros in a track suit. It’s just wrong. But one must not forget the GT3-R has the oomph necessary to handle the weight.
In fact, Bentley Continental GT3-R has so much oomph, it is capable of keeping up with the most serious sports cars and super cars out there. The video below shows the car at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, tackling the famous hill climb challenge in which it set the fifth fastest time of over 50 supercars.
