Inspired by Continental GT-3 race car, the new GTR-3 can accelerate from 0 to 100 kmph in 3.8 seconds keeping it abreast with the Porsche’s and Ferrari’s while hand built interiors will sport the most lavish of comforts.

Continental GT3-R is based on the Continental two seater which is powered by a 4.0 liter twin turbo V8 engine. This engine is capable of 572 bhp power and 71.4 kgm torque from 1,700 rpm. Lighter in weight by 100 kgs as compared to the GT V8 S, the GT3-R will see its engine mated to an 8 speed automatic gearbox while its exhaust system will be made from titanium adding to its baritone roar. Top speed has been electronically limited to 273 kmph due to gearbox shorter gearing.
