The 2015 Bentley Continental GT3-R, the most exclusive member of the Continental GT family, will arrive at U.S. dealerships in the first quarter of next year, a Bentley spokesman told Edmunds on Tuesday.
Bentley spokesman Corey Proffitt said an estimated 99 units of the hand-built car will be delivered in the Americas region. Just 300 units of the car will be sold worldwide. Pricing will be announced closer to launch.
The Continental GT3-R, a two-seater that takes aim at high-end vehicles including the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CL63 AMG coupe and the Audi R8 coupe, is inspired by the new Continental GT3 racecar. The production version is powered by a 572-horsepower 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine linked to an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission. "The Continental GT3-R is the fastest-accelerating Bentley ever," the automaker said in a statement. It is capable of reaching 60 mph from a standstill in 3.6 seconds.
