Because race car?
A limited 2015 Bentley Continental GT3-R is currently up for sale in Greenwich, Connecticut. Only 300 GT3-Rs were produced and just 99 examples were made available in the US market. This particular one is vehicle number 4 in the series and comes in a beautiful gloss black with British racing green stripes accenting the sides of the vehicle. This GT3-R is listed for $342,545, approximately $135,000 more than a Continental V-8 S.
However, for the extra money a potential buyer gets a road-going luxury race car with 572 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. Also, the awesome "overboost" function pushes the car to 592 hp and 553 lb-ft for 15 seconds when put into use. All told the GT3-R can hit 60 mph in a mere 3.6 seconds. Because this is a race-themed Bentley, it has no wood on the interior, but rather carbon fiber trim throughout. Weight has also been reduced by completely removing the back seats and adding deep bucket racing seats with a diamond weave pattern for the driver and one passenger.
