The model continues from where the concept left, but it looks a little bit more aggressive and more track-ready. When compared to a base Continental GT , the new GT3 racer is about 2,200 pounds lighter and combined with the powerful engine found under the hood, you will get a real monster on the race track.
The new Continental GT3 will enter its first development races before starting full competition in the FIA Blancpain Series in 2014. Until then it will run the famous Goodwood Festival of Speed hill climb, piloted twice a day by Bentley Boy and 2003 Le Mans champion, Guy Smith.
