You know it's a racecar, because the tow-hooks...must be fast!

People are going to hate racing around this thing. Too big to pass and too big to get hit by.

This has to be a record in terms of weight difference between the factory car and GT3 spec car:

Quote:
Bentley’s also tight-lipped about output numbers, but expect to see a figure somewhat less than the GT Speed’s 616 hp. What the GT3 also will have less of than the Speed is weight: The Speed tips the scales at what Bentley claims is a hefty 5115 pounds. Bentley's aim is to have the GT3 car weight less than the regulated 2866-pound minimum, and then to add ballast to get back up to spec.

All that wood, metal, leather and insulation must weigh a ton. Bentleys are built like a brick shithouse, so I imagine there's plenty of fat to trim.

Still impressive though considering that's nearly half the weight of the car.

For any following that race car, fuel consumption could improve dramatically.
