2020 Bentley Continental GT3 release

Luxury car makers are renowned for their classical lines, stylish interiors and comfortable driving experience. Elegance and poise are the undisputed king and queen of high end road car manufacturers, creating machinery that excels on long distance journeys to short hops around the many beautiful countryside’s of the world.

The Bentley Continental GT was no exception to this expected practice, having been quickly regarded as one of the finest vehicles of its class following a public reveal back at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, within the confines of the spectacular 228,211m2 Paris expo Porte de Versailles facility. Not content to rest on their laurels, in 2017 Bentley launched the brand new third generation Continental GT to the world, enhancing and improving the car yet further to create what would form the basis of the hugely successful Continental GT3.

Motorsport has been at the heart of Bentley throughout its first 100 years. In 1921, just two years after the first Bentley prototype was revealed, it was racing at the world famous 24 Hours of Le Mans. Today, Bentley races into its next 100 years with the Continental GT3, it’s most dynamic and powerful race car based on its most advanced road car yet. Designed by Bentley at its headquarters in Crewe, the Continental GT3 is raced by the luxury brand’s successful and prestigious teams around the world. The customer racing programme includes the global Intercontinental GT Challenge, as well as some of the top national and international GT3 championships.

In 2018, Bentley Motorsport unveiled the thrilling new Continental GT3 race car. Lighter, more dynamic and even more powerful than its multi-championship-winning predecessor, it’s the most exciting race car ever created by Bentley – because it is closely based on the company’s most advanced road car the newly launched Continental GT.

In 2020, Bentley’s racing teams will challenge for victories around the globe. Competing on five continents against the major premium and performance automotive brands, Bentley and its top-level race teams always aim to be class-leaders.

The 2020 Bentley Continental GT3, capable of delivering in excess of 550bhp, has already enjoyed victory at the 2019 Circuit Paul Ricard 1000km and the 2020 Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12-hour endurance events. Looking every inch the championship contender, rFactor 2 players now have the opportunity to race this exceptional car within the simulation – and better yet, it has been added as free content for anyone who already owns the current GT3 Bentley DLC (available from the rFactor 2 Steam Store HERE). That’s right, we have made the decision to release this fantastic new entry into the ever expanding array of GT3 specification race cars within rFactor 2 as a free content addition for owners of the Bentley Continental GT3 DLC.
