We are pleased to present this rare 2015 Bentley Continental GT3-R. Limited to only 300 examples built for the entire world and only 99 designated for the U.S. market, this special edition Continental GT V8 S celebrates Bentley’s return to international sportscar racing in the GT3 category. In addition to its specially tuned twin-turbo V8 engine making over 570 HP, this model features a Carbon Silicon Carbide (CSiC) braking system, a titanium sport exhaust, a rear seat delete, fixed spoiler, and a bespoke interior in Beluga black and green with diamond-quilted Alcantara upholstery. A true collector’s item with an original MSRP of over $339k, this 2015 example is now being offered for auction by its seller in Texas while showing approximately 6,500 miles on the odometer.
Sharing its theme with the factory-developed race car, this GT3-R is finished in Glacier White. Other unique details include a front splitter, side skirts, a fixed rear spoiler, carbon fiber contrasts, and a vented front bonnet, as well as gloss black front grilles, headlights bezels, window surrounds, and forged 21” alloy wheels. The entire front end of this example has been covered in clear paint protection film and the finish is said to be in excellent condition, detailed images are provided in the photo gallery.
Inside, this special edition showcases a bespoke Beluga Black leather interior with green accents and diamond-pattern Alcantara upholstery. Other noteworthy features include carbon-fiber trim, a rear seat delete, and GT3-R badging throughout the cabin. The interior is reported to be in fantastic condition with only minimal signs of wear, and all gauges and accessories are said to be working properly.
The twin-turbocharged 4.8 L V8 engine under the hood has been factory tuned to achieve an output of 592 HP and 553 lb.-ft of torque. An 8-speed automatic transmission sends power to all four wheels. In addition to its 220lbs. of weight savings over the standard Continental GT, this special edition is equipped with torque vectoring for each of the rear wheels, shorter gearing ratios, sport-tuned Electronic Stability Control (ESC) programming and a Carbon Silicon Carbide (CSiC) braking system. The result of these factory upgrades is a much quicker and nimbler vehicle capable of accelerating from 0-60 MPH in as little as 3.4 seconds. This example is said to have been serviced through an authorized Bentley dealer and all available maintenance history is provided on CARFAX.
This sale will include the original spare tire, tools, a car cover, and a clean title. Offering performance far beyond that of any other Bentley on the road, this highly exclusive GT3-R presents a very special opportunity.
