Bentley makes its debut at the 2012 Los Angeles International Auto Show with its Continental GT3 Concept Racer. The vehicle was earlier seen at 2012 Paris Motor Show, and is based on their fastest road car ever, and is an FIA approved concept which that begin testing on the track in 2013. Bentley Continental GT3 will perform a series of endurance races and will be competing in a number of events which will also include a 24 hour endurance race.

Bentley will also be showcasing the 205 mph Continental GT Speed performance flagship and the Mulsanne Mulliner Driving Specification at the Los Angeles Auto Show 2012. Speed has a long history of success ever since it was unveiled in the US in 2008.

GT3 Concept will have a rear wheel drive chassis and an aerodynamic package to compete in GT racing as Bentley decides to return to motorsports at the end of 2013. GT Speed coupe appeals to auto enthusiasts due to its enhanced handling, state of the art performance and high speed. It develops 616 bhp at 6000 rpm and 800 Nm torque at between 2000 to 5000 rpm. Its engine is mated to a new ZF eight speed close ratio automatic transmission and exclusive engine management software. The GT Speed can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.0 seconds and reach from 0 to 100 mph in 9.0 seconds. While speed is the ultimate consideration, the company has not overlooked comfort, craftsmanship and luxury all of which are at their zenith in this vehicle.
