After recently unveiling the Bentley Continental GT3 Concept, the British brand has just announced that the Concept Racer will make an appearance at the 2013 Autosport International exhibition. Furthermore, the marque has also announced a partnership with M-Sport Ltd to help develop the Continental GT3.
The Continental GT3 will take center stage at the 2013 Autosport exhibition and will debut on the Autosport Stage from 10th-13th of January in Birmingham, the United Kingdom. Bentley reports that the Continental GT3 was met with an overly positive response and has already received significant interest from numerous potential customers. Additionally, Bentley hopes the car will make its first on-track appearance by the end of 2013.
Bentley’s partnership with M-Sport has largely been created to help the firm to design specialist components for the car, while also offering technical expertise during the development of the Continental GT3.
The Director of Motorsport for Bentley, Brian Gush said;
Not only do we now have a world-beating operation in M-Sport as our new Technical Partner, but we have the honour of showing our Continental GT3 concept at Autosport International. The car continues to attract interest from around the globe, which is very encouraging as we progress the detail design. The whole team is looking forward to the exciting months ahead.
While speaking about the new partnership, M-Sport’s Managing Director Malcolm Wilson stated;
Joining forces with Bentley to help create the new Continental GT3 is a rare privilege. Bentley’s design and analysis work to-date has shown that the Continental GT road car can become an extremely competitive race car, and we are looking forward to capitalizing on our extensive competition car development experience and success to help Bentley realise its goals.
Oh yeah . It’ll star at the auto shows . And then promptly making a bloody fool of itself and Bentley the minute its tires hit the track .
Truly and unfortunately in light of Bentley’s past heritage a …. Bent .. Bentley in the making ;-)
