Continental GT3-R makes North American Debut at Pebble Beach
Making its North American debut at this year’s Pebble Beach is the new Continental GT3-R – the most dynamic and fastest-accelerating Bentley ever produced.
Christophe Georges, President and CEO, Bentley Motors, Inc. comments:
“Pebble Beach is the perfect location for the debut of the rarest and most dynamic Continental GT, the GT3-R. 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.”
The inspiration behind the GT3-R – the Continental GT3 race car – will also be on display at a number of locations throughout California’s Monterey Peninsula:
The Home of Bentley at Pebble Beach provides the focal point for all Bentley guests during the week. It is home to the full range of Bentley models, The Bentley Luxury Collection and more. The winning GT3 race car will be on display from Thursday through Sunday at The Home.
On Friday, at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering, the GT3-R will be on display alongside the GT3 race car and other new road going Bentley models including the flagship Mulsanne sedan and the new 2015 Continental GT Speed Convertible.
On Saturday, Dyson Racing Team Bentley will present the GT3 race car at The Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion held at the Laguna Seca Raceway paddock. Currently competing in the North America Pirelli World Challenge series, the team has competed in a number of races in its first season and is currently preparing for the next race to be held at the Sonoma Grand Prix on Saturday, August 23.
Both cars will again be displayed on the Bentley Concept Lawn Sunday at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance for the conclusion of Monterey Auto Week.
Pebble Beach is also renowned for its auctions of collectible classic and vintage automobiles. In 2014, three classic Bentleys are being auctioned by RM Auctions between Friday August 15th and Saturday August 16th.
