DEBUTS AND REUNIONS FROM BENTLEY AT 2014 GOODWOOD FESTIVAL OF SPEED  ◾Continental GT3 race car primed for Goodwood Hill

◾Debuts for Continental GT V8 S and new Flying Spur V8

◾Rare reunion of great Bentley Le Mans cars confirmed

(Crewe/Goodwood, 20 March 2014) Bentley announces an exciting line-up of cars today for the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed (June 26-29) and offers a unique display of the best in British luxury and performance.

Power and dramatic speed will be showcased by the new Bentley Continental GT3 race car on Goodwood's famous hill run throughout the three day Festival. The 600 bhp GT3, powered by a race-going version of Bentley's powerful and efficient 4.0 litre V8 engine, is primed to spearhead the company's return to top-level motorsport in the Blancpain Endurance Series in Europe this summer.

DEBUTS AND REUNIONS FROM BENTLEY AT 2014 GOODWOOD FESTIVAL OF SPEED  

In the Supercar paddock, the new Bentley Continental GT V8 S will make its Goodwood debut. Also powered by Bentley's acclaimed twin-turbo 4.0 litre engine; this 192 mph GT is sleeker, faster and more responsive - and has a 0-60 mph sprint time of just 4.3 seconds.

Bentley's new Continental GT V8 S features lowered, stiffened suspension and signature sporting styling for an even sleeker, more purposeful stance. Clearly identified by its distinctive 'figure of eight' exhaust tail pipes, the crowds will also be able to enjoy this model's distinctive V8 full throttle soundtrack during the twice daily Supercar runs.

Legendary Bentley performance from another era comes in the form of a car affectionately known as 'Old Number 1'. The Speed Six Bentley won Le Mans in 1929 and 1930 with Woolf Barnato partnering Henry 'Tim' Birkin (1929) and Glen Kidston (1930) as well as winning at Brooklands.

This unique racing car will be joined by two more Speed Six Bentleys. 'Old Number 2' and 'Old Number 3' are both in their original form and raced alongside Old No.1 at Le Mans in 1930. Only rarely seen together since their racing days, these three fabled Bentleys will be reunited at Goodwood.
