Bentley Team M-Sport reveals 2018 livery at Monza

Bentley Team M-Sport has revealed the livery with which its two second-generation Continental GT3s will defend the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup Teams’ title this season.

The British outfit unveiled both cars in Monza’s pitlane this morning ahead of Sunday’s opening round. The same livery will also feature at this year’s three remaining Intercontinental GT Challenge races.

The ‘moonbeam’ gloss silver and bright green livery is an evolution of the design first seen during the new Continental GT3’s launch last November.

The simple but effective design accentuates the second-generation Continental GT3’s aggressive styling and purposeful aerodynamic shapes. The bright green highlights also contrast against the car’s darker components while maintaining a link with Bentley’s motorsport heritage. The overall look is completed by the Union Flag, a traditional feature of the manufacturer’s racing cars for the past 100 years.

The design also incorporates several new and returning official partners. Mobil 1 has extended its official technical partnership into a fifth season, NAIM Audio continue their established relationship and Princess Yachts return for a second year.

2017’s success has also resulted in further global technical partners – Pagid Racing, BBS Forged and Penske Racing Shocks – joining Bentley Team M-Sport.

Bentley’s Director of Motorsport, Brian Gush, comments:

“I would like to thank Mobil 1, Princess Yachts and NAIM Audio for their continued support, and welcome Pagid Racing, BBS Forged and Penske Racing Shocks to the Bentley Team M-Sport family. 2018 promises to be a very exciting year for the new Continental GT3, and it’s one we are delighted to be sharing with our valued partners.”
