Yeah, it’s a limited-edition British car commemorating one of the world’s most well-known races in Australia. It does sound like an odd combination, but it’s been done to commemorate the automaker’s first victory in the iconic race in the GT3 class with the factory-built Bentley Continental GT3, race number #7. If you’re a keen supporter of local racers, you should already know that Edernvale-born Jordan Pepper was one of the three drivers that contributed to the win after starting way back in P11. Teammates included Belgium’s Maxime Soulet and France’s Jules Gounon and the trio had a near-perfect race at the Mount Panorama Circuit in Bathurst, New South Wales, Australia. To commemorate the win, Bentley has released a pair of limited edition Bathurst 12 Hour Bentley Continental GT S cars. As you’d expect, the Continental GT S models share a number of characteristics with the track-based counterpart, which makes it a racecar for the road. The two cars have individual specifications too, so collectors will have to choose wisely, or pony up and buy one of each.
