Bentley Continental GT3 Pikes Peak 2022. The Bentley Continental GT has been heavily tweaked for the speedy climb to Pikes Peak.

Bentley has unveiled the extreme Continental GT3 Pikes Peak, designed specifically for the Pikes Peak High Speed ​​Climb competition.

Outside, this modification draws attention to itself in black and gold “Roger Clark Motorsport” livery with sponsor logos.

Plus, the car has a developed aerodynamic body kit, which, according to the developers, generates 30% more downforce.

So, a two-level splitter is installed on the front of the two-door, and at the stern, one cannot fail to note the presence of a huge wing and an equally noticeable diffuser.

The car has no rear side windows. Instead of them, additional air intakes are installed, designed to improve the cooling of the technical filling.

Interestingly, most of the components of this body kit were made by printing using a special composite based on nylon with the addition of carbon fiber.

The new Bentley Continental GT3 Pikes Peak is said to be powered by a racing version of the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, and the unit has been further refined.

In particular, the engine received new pistons and connecting rods.

Plus, it was equipped with enlarged blowers with external bypass valves, as well as a carbon fiber intake manifold with thickened walls.

The exhaust system of a racing two-door is also far from conventional. Its titanium tailpipes are laser-sintered by Akrapovic and brought out just behind the front wheels.

Thanks to these improvements, the engine now produces over 750 hp. (1,000 Nm) running on 98RON racing biofuel.

The racing drivetrain, however, remains standard by and large, but it uses a special lubricant.

In addition, the chassis settings were revised on the two-door.

The company’s specialists installed the softest springs and stabilizers on the racing car, and also reduced the camber angle. Again, the company did not forget about the brakes, providing them with water cooling.

British specialists have already thoroughly tested the modified Continental GT, and now it remains to wait directly for the race itself, which will take place at Pikes Peak on June 27, 2021.

By the way, the car will be driven by Rhys Millen, a three-time climber champion.

The company hopes that such a Continental GT3 Pikes Peak will be able to set a new record.

Note that if successful for the British, this will be the third record for climbing a mountain.

Previously, they managed to show the best time among serial crossovers (Bentley W12) and cars (Continental GT W12).
