How To Make A Bentley Taste Like Bacon and Bananas

Video / Comments

Sounds awesome.

At $337,000 a pop, limited to 99 units in the US and 300 worldwide, the Bentley Continental GT3-R is the fastest-ever accelerating road car the automaker has ever built. Inspired by the standard GT3, power comes from a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 with 572 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque, while weight has been stripped yet still comes in at a hefty 2,195 kg. 0-60 mph happens in just 3.6 seconds and Bentley describes the GT3-R as a grand tourer with the performance of a race car.

But should a road-going Bentley come with a fat rear wing, sporty decal and a hard suspension setup? According to Chris Harris, who recently spent time chucking it around a track, it should not. But to his surprise it happens to work. A bit like eating bacon and banana is his analogy, something you should eat while watching this.
