We began to salivate when we saw the Bentley Continental GT3 up close and personal at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. The thought of a track-going Continental GT conjured up notions of the Bentley Boys, the original gentlemen racers, tearing down the Mulsanne straight. Well, according to AutoGuide, it appears our wistful ponderings will be realized in the form of an international spec racing series.
Similar to the Porsche Carrera Cup or the Ferrari Challenge, this will be a one-make series, and Bentley seeks to run races in Europe, North America and Asia. As for the latter, Bentley Board Member for Marketing Kevin Rose suggested that China will be the likely host of an Asian race. According to Rose, sportscar racing is of interest to Bentley's Chinese customers. He also says that there will be participation by dealers. "Our dealers are by definition car nuts," claims Rose.
While the Continental GT3 is being developed for pro-level use, Bentley is apparently working on a turn-key car for gentlemen racers. According to Rose, "We want to make it as easy as possible." While that doesn't sound like the devil-may-care Bentley Boys of yore, it's likely better to attract participation. The first trials are expected for 2013, and Bentley is even considering making vehicles available for privateer teams.
Bentley Continental GT V8 and Bentley Speed 8
The New Continental GT V8
A GT that drives to a different beat.
The clues are there. The dark mesh radiator grille, ringed by bright metal.
The aggressive lower bumper with its three air intakes. The dark rear
valance, with its twin Exhaust
tailpipes shaped into an elongated, side-on figure eight. And one further
small, but significant detail: a red enamel Bentley winged 'B'. These are
the tell-tale signs of an all-new Bentley, powered by a 4.0 litre V8
From the distinctive backbeat of its eight cylinders at idling speed to the
glorious snarl of full-throttle acceleration, the new V8 offers an
exhilarating, involving and passionate route to Bentley Continental
ownership. All-wheel drive and an eight-speed transmission transmit its
power to the road with unshakable precision. This is a Bentley that can
both stir the soul or calm the spirit, according to the mood of the driver
or the conditions.

Audi S3 vs. Mercedes A45 AMG - Test it
Eigentlich sind sie doch unsere heimlichen Traumautos. Kompakt und
vernünftig mit viel Dampf, um ab und zu den Hobby-Schumi raushängen zu
können. Der Audi S3 und der Mercedes A 45 AMG sind dazu wie gemacht.
Besonders der AMG mit dem stärksten Serien-Vierzylinder-turbomotor, 360 PS und Allradantrieb ist für die
Kurven der Silvretta-Hochalpenstrasse wie gemacht. Aber auch der 300 PS
Audi S3, eher der elegantere und gediegenere der beiden Kontrahenten ist
verbessert worden und steht dem A in Punkto Spaßfaktor in nichts nach.
Stefan Wagner hat sich die Kompakt-Knalltüten zur Brust genommen.

Ariel Atom V8 vs 600bhp rallycross Citroen DS3 vs BMW HP4 superbike drag race - autocar.co.uk
Which is faster? An Ariel Atom V8
track day toy, BMW HP4 superbike or a rallycross Citroen DS3 with 600bhp?
SUBSCRIBE to Autocar:
Here we have three completely different ways of going extremely quickly in
a straight line. Time for a drag race then. So what are the contenders?
There's the one-wheel drive BMW HP4 superbike, which arguably requires the
most skill to extract speed from but has a ludicrous 757bhp/tonne
power-to-weight ratio. Then there's the two-wheel drive Ariel Atom V8 with
748bhp/tonne and the Citroen DS3 Rallycross car with only 577bhp/tonne but
all-important four-wheel drive. Oh, and did we mention it's wet?
Autocar, the world's leading motoring magazine and website, delivers
industry-leading news, the most in-depth car reviews and opinion from our
team of experts. Our presenters include some of the world's top motoring
journalists who have unrivalled access to the world's fastest, rarest, most
exotic and most exciting cars on some of the world's best roads and race
Can a supercar beat a superbike? Can a Audi A1 outrun a Nissan GT-R on a
wet circuit? Can a Porsche 911 slay a Corvette on the drag strip? Autocar
pitches the giants of the performance car world against each other to
deliver the all-important verdict.
