The luxury of spontaneity – the freedom to take to the open road on your own terms. No other car on the road today exempliﬁes the spirit of life’s grand tour more than the Bentley Continental GT3-R.
The 4-litre twin-turbo V8 is carried over, although new turbochargers lift peak output by around 10 per cent to 572bhp at 6000rpm. Those turbos are ‘blueprinted’ for an especially tight fit of the turbine within the housing, which promotes a better response, reducing the time taken to spool up.
The eight-speed ZF automatic gearbox is unchanged, although the final drive ratio has been shortened from 2.96:1 to 3.50:1 for much more urgent straight-line acceleration. In fact, the GT3-R will hit 62mph from rest in 3.8 seconds (4.5sec for the V8 S), which makes it the fastest accelerating Bentley ever, although its top speed has been slashed from 192mph to 170mph as a result of that shorter final drive.
There’s no doubting the lengths to which the drivetrain and chassis engineers have gone in their efforts to sharpen up the Continental, but given the base car’s sheer mass they might have been facing a losing battle. Through the use of carbon-ceramic brakes as standard (at 420mm the front discs are the largest fitted to any production road car), an Akrapovic titanium exhaust system, carbonfibre interior panels, lightweight forged alloy wheels and the deletion of the rear seats some 100kg has been stripped out, although at 2120kg the GT3-R is still very much in the heavyweight division.
The GT3-R isn’t just louder under full throttle, though; it’s also much more forceful in the way it accelerates. It matches the W12 models for straight-line thrust in the mid-range, but the V8 also feels more alert and keener at the top end. The eight-speed paddleshift auto gearbox shifts cleanly and quickly, while the new paddles themselves are less of an awkward stretch away from the rim of the steering wheel.

If a person writes a check without sufficient funds in an associated account to cover it, the check will bounce, or be returned for insufficient funds. Each state has laws regulating how merchants may respond to bounced checks. In Connecticut, the merchant may file a civil suit and press criminal charges if the check writer does not reimburse him for a bounced check after the merchant has sent several notices regarding the matter.
Posted Notice Requirement
Merchants and other business owners who accept checks must post a notice where customers are likely to see it warning them of the potential consequences of writing bad checks. The notice must include the civil penalties that bad check writers may face, the appropriate Connecticut statute number and an advisory that the check writer may also face criminal penalties
Civil and Criminal Penalties
As of 2010, civil courts may require the check writer to reimburse the merchant for the value of the check plus pay up to $750 if he has no back account or $400 if the check is returned for insufficient funds. If the merchant chooses to press criminal charges, the bad check writer may face a fine of up to $1,000 and up to one year in jail. Writing a bad check is a felony charge if the check was for more than $1,000 and a misdemeanor if written for a lesser amount.
Required Written Notices
If a check bounces, the merchant must send the check writer a letter by certified mail at the check writer's last known address or place of business. Usually this letter is sent to the address on the writer's check. The letter must inform the writer that the check was returned ask him to reimburse the merchant for the amount of the check and inform him of the potential criminal or civil penalties if he fails to do so. If the check writers does not respond to the letter within 15 days of receipt, the merchant must send a second letter. This letter must inform the check writer that he has 30 days to reimburse the merchant before the merchant takes legal action against him. Both letters must be written in both English and Spanish.
