Do you want to jump into a supercar and cruise around at over 300 kph? Do you want more than 600 bhp and the ability to accelerate to 100 kph in just 3.6 seconds? Luckily, you don’t have to splurge your lifelong savings, as you can soon take the Bentley Continental GT3 for a virtual test drive.
rFactor 2 teased the newest addition to their garage this Friday. It is not yet known when exactly the car is going to be available in-game, but according to a response under the Tweet that follows below, the new update is scheduled for next week.
The most recent GT3 addition of developer Studio 397 was the Ferrari 488 GT3 Evo in May 2020. Once the new Bentley is implemented in-game, there will be 13 official GT3 cars in rFactor 2.
Best of British! GT3 cars come in all shapes and sizes, and the #Bentley #ContinentalGT3 is one of the most distinctive and attractive of them all.

What is a GT3 car?
Those who are still new to the wonderous world of fast racing cars might not know what the GT3 classification entails. The term ‘GT’ means Grand Tourer, or in Italian, Gran Turismo. These vehicles are specifically built for long-distance journeys with a focus on comfort and style.
Cup Grand Touring Cars, also known as GT3, are racing car versions of the long-distance rides that were originally built for public roads. However, the cars are specially remodeled for racing events, and only bear a slight resemblance to their road-going siblings. There are no set regulations for their design, apart from having to be based on a GT road car. The FIA (Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile) then regulates the cars, ensuring that they all perform according to similar standards.
