Introducing The Fastest Bentley Ever: The Continental GT3-R

Bentley has announced its fastest production car ever, the limited edition Continental GT3-R.

The two-door, two-seat sports coupe is a quickened version of the GT3, with 572 horsepower and a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine that pushes the car to 60 miles per hour in just 3.6 seconds. That’s faster than the Continental GTC Speed and Supersports versions (0-60mph in 4 and 3.7 seconds, respectively), and a full second faster than the Bentley Flying Spur.

Part of that speed comes from the GT3-R’s newly svelte body (100kg lighter than the GT V8 S), while part comes from improved torque, heightened throttle response and a shortened gearing system that allows for that hastened departure and maneuvering capability.

Bentley’s excellent all-wheel-drive and electronic stability control systems are also in full effect here, and the chassis has been specially tuned to make this car feel more dynamic than its non-R counterparts. It comes complete with sport/drive modes, ultra lightweight forged 21-inch wheels and high-grip Pirelli tires (with brake calipers painted an unmistakable green).

Wolfgang Dürheimer, Bentley’s chief executive, called the car “a celebration” of engineering. “To be a true Bentley, the GT3-R had to be the most luxurious track-inspired Grand Tourer ever,” he said. “This car pushes our trademark combination to a new level.”

Indeed, inside the car is coated in Beluga black leather with diamond-quilted Alcantara, a hand-stitched steering wheel and gear shifter, and carbon fiber trim. On the outside, a new carbon-fiber front splitter and rear wing hint at just how aggressive this car is, as do two new vents in the hood and the glossy black headlamps, grille and bumper. Each of the cars will be painted in “Glacier White” and come with contrast stitching in green thread along the headrests and seats.

Ultimate Food Guide to Vietnam

A. “An com chua?” If you’re going to understand Vietnam and the Vietnamese, this three-word phrase is key. A friendly greeting exchanged throughout the day, it poses a seemingly mundane question: "Have you eaten?". The polite answer, even if you have, is “Why, no—let’s eat!”

B. Food is at the very heart of Vietnamese culture. Almost every aspect of social, devotional, and family life revolves around the procurement, preparation, and shared pleasure of nourishment. Even commercial life: more than half of Vietnam’s population makes a living in agriculture or the food trade. Markets are on every corner; cooks on every curb. A sneeze elicits the blessing “com muoi”, or “rice with salt”.

C. On a recent train ride from Hue to Hoi An, food was everywhere in sight. At each station stop, vendors rushed up to the windows proffering homemade treats: shrimp cakes, jerky, sticky rice. One vendor came aboard and walked the aisles, selling sun-dried squid. (An American traveler bought one, thinking it was a decorative fan.) In the bar car the train conductor and his staff spent the whole ride not collecting tickets but preparing lunch: cooking noodles, shelling prawns, trimming basil into woven baskets.

D. Follow any lane in any Vietnamese city at any time of day and you’ll find some contented soul crouched over a bowl of broth or rice. Then again, if you lived in Vietnam, you’d eat all the time, too. The food is beautiful to behold, if only for the colors alone: turmeric-yellow crêpes, sunset-orange crabs, scarlet-red chilies, deep-purple shrimp paste, and endless jungles of vivid green. Vietnamese cooking is fresher, healthier and brighter than, for instance, Chinese or Indian or French, three of its closest relations. Though it is often described as “honest” and “direct”.
