Though no definite details of engine are yet revealed it is estimated that the GT3 will have either a race tuned version of the GT Speed 616 bhp 6.0 liter W12 engine or a new 500 bhp 4.0 liter V8. Its eight speed automatic gearbox may be switched to a racing sequential transmission while a rear wheel drive may take the place of its four wheel drive system.

Bentley has revealed that the final racing version of the concept model here, will be developed from the company plant in Crewe while it will be heading to the race circuit by the end of 2013. Based on the Bentley Continental GT Speed, which is the fastest Bentley road car ever, GT3 racing version will have revised aerodynamics and include a carbon fiber front splitter, rear diffuser while it will possess a race spec rear wing to produce extra downforce.
