HISTORY
The Bentley Speed 8 [previously known as the Bentley EXP Speed 8], was an LMP Race Car that competed in the Le Mans Series from 2001-2003, taking first place in 2003. It has a strong resemblance to and shares almost the same technology with the Audi R8. The Speed 8 marked Bentley's return to racing after a 73 year absence.

TECHNICAL SPECS
The most developed version of the Bentley Speed 8 was powered by a 4.0-liter V-8 producing 600 hp, mated to a 6-speed manual transmission giving it a top speed of 215 mph (344 km/h). The car weighed 900 kg (1984 lb) in line with the minimum weight mandated for the LM GTP class of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Besides solely existing as a form of brand advertising I give it a frozen. It's a bloody proper race car.

350Z get your head out of your ass and try re-reading my post. I was saying thanks to GTR for showing us how it works while at the same time showing the ignorance of the people that have been around a long time that didn't even know the rules.

so stop being a dick, 350Z.

Anyway, on topic!
I really love almost any racing car in British Racing Green, and winning Le Mans is also a definite plus. But because it actually is 'just' an Audi I'll go for just Cool
