Last month Bentley showed part of the preparation process of the new Bentley Continental GT3 race car. Now it is being announced that the Continental GT3 is ready for a world debut at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed. The event will take place from 12th till14th July in Sussex, England.

The new race car will then demonstrate in front of the public its performance potential. In fact, this GT3 is the most extreme form of the iconic Grand Tourer ever built. It is only rumoured that the vehicle will be equipped with an enhanced version of the 6.0-liter W12 engine with expectations of power delivery over 700HP (522 kW).

In addition, the vehicle will be joined at Goodwood by two other Continental models: the Continental GT Speed coupe, driven by World Rally Champion Juha Kankkunen.

The latter car has a top speed of 205 mph (330 km/h), and this makes it the fastest production Bentley ever. It is equipped with a 6.0-litre, twin-turbo W12 engine, which achieves stunning acceleration time: for the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h it just needs 4.2 seconds.

Behind the steering wheel of the other car – the GT Speed Convertible will be the Five-time Le Mans winner Derek Bell. The model has a top speed of 202 mph (325 km/h), it is equipped with dynamic chassis setup, has enhanced power and torque and a host of subtle yet distinctive styling cues.

The new Bentley Continental GT3 will be unveiled on 12th of July. More information about the car will be release afterwards.
