Despite being the most hardcore Continental ever offered, the Bentley Continental GT3 R still tips the scales at 2195 kg. Nevertheless, the car has been created as a follow on from the GT3 racing car and as Chris Harris recently found out, the performance-oriented Bentley coupe is quite potent in a straight line and through the corners.

As you’d expect from any Chris Harris video, nothing is complete without some hilarious drifts and this clip certainly isn’t short of them!

Bentley have opted to use the same 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 for the GT3-R. It comes with 580 hp and 700 Nm of torque. With the 100 kg weight loss and shorter gearing, the GT3-R is capable of reaching 60 mph from a standstill in just 3.6 seconds (0-100 km/h in 3.8 secs). Upgrades have also been applied to the power train with torque vectoring now available together with a modified Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and a new chassis tune.
