Introduced at the recent 2012 Paris Motor Show, the new Bentley Continental GT3 concept has now made its video debut, and is being readied for Bentley’s return to motorsports. 

The British brand captured its sixth Le Mans victory in 2003, and since has dropped out of racing all together. Now, the GT3 concept, based on the Continental GT speed, will return the brand back to its motorsports roots on the track.

Exactly what is powering the car is still unknown, but we do know that under the hood of the GT Speed lives a 6.0-liter, twin-turbocharged W12 engine that makes 616 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque. The GT3 sits on a rear-drive chassis, and receives state of the art motor sports hardware and aerodynamics package according to the company.
