Bentley to showcase new line-up at UK event
London, May 8, 2014
UK-based luxury carmaker Bentley Motors has announced an exciting line-up of cars for the upcoming Goodwood Festival of Speed, a leading popular motor sport and car culture event, running from June 26 to 29.
Power and dramatic speed will be showcased by the new Bentley Continental GT3 race car on Goodwood’s famous hill run throughout the event. The 600 bhp GT3, powered by a race-going version of Bentley’s powerful and efficient 4.0 litre V8 engine, is primed to spearhead the company’s return to top-level motorsport in the Blancpain Endurance Series in Europe this summer.
In the Supercar paddock, the new Bentley Continental GT V8 S will make its Goodwood debut. Also powered by Bentley’s acclaimed twin-turbo 4.0 litre engine; this 192 mph GT is sleeker, faster and more responsive - and has a 0-60 mph sprint time of just 4.3 seconds.
Bentley’s new Continental GT V8 S features lowered, stiffened suspension and signature sporting styling for an even sleeker, more purposeful stance.
Legendary Bentley ‘Old Number 1’ will be joined by two more Speed Six Bentleys. ‘Old Number 2’ and ‘Old Number 3’ are both in their original form and raced alongside Old No.1 at Le Mans in 1930. Only rarely seen together since their racing days, these three fabled Bentleys will be showcased at Goodwood.
