CREWE, England The 2015 Bentley Continental GT3-R, the most exclusive member of the Continental GT family, will arrive at U.S. dealerships in the first quarter of next year, a Bentley spokesman told Edmunds on Tuesday.

Bentley spokesman Corey Proffitt said an estimated 99 units of the hand-built car will be delivered in the Americas region. Just 300 units of the car will be sold worldwide.

Pricing will be announced closer to launch.

The Continental GT3-R, a two-seater that takes aim at high-end vehicles including the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CL63 AMG coupe and the Audi R8 coupe, is inspired by the new Continental GT3 racecar.

The production version is powered by a 572-horsepower 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine linked to an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission.

"The Continental GT3-R is the fastest-accelerating Bentley ever," the automaker said in a statement.

It is capable of reaching 60 mph from a standstill in 3.6 seconds.

Only one exterior color choice — Glacier White — is available. In a nod to the Continental GT3 racecar, all GT3-Rs will feature two-tone green graphics on the exterior. Other details include new 21-inch wheels.

The cabin gets sports seats and a center console handcrafted in carbon fiber. The interior also gets eye-popping green accent trim on the seats, instrument panel and door panels.

Edmunds says: Exclusivity is the key word here. If you want to get in line for one of the beauties, it's best to start the conversation with your Bentley dealer now.
