Bentley has announced pricing on its Continental GT3-R and just how limited it will be in the U.S.
The Continental GT3-R will be limited to just 99 units in the U.S. with another four destined for Canada and will have a starting price tag of $337,000. Dealers in North America are now accepting orders for the Continental GT3-R, which will make its North American debut at this year’s Pebble Beach Automotive Week. Deliveries of the luxury sports car will start in the first quarter of 2015.
The Bentley Continental GT3-R is powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine with 572 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque and is capable of going 0-60 mph in just 3.6 seconds. In addition, the model is 220 lbs lighter than the standard Continental GT and is the fastest-accelerating Bentley ever created.
“Pebble Beach is the perfect location for the debut of the rarest and most dynamic Continental GT, the GT3-R,” said Christophe Georges, President and CEO of Bentley Motors. “It is a testament to the Bentley trademarks of luxury and performance and we’re excited to share it with the friends of Bentley during this gathering of fine automobiles.”
