Bentley Continental Pikes Peak Race Car CSR2, tune and shift pattern

The Bentley Continental Pikes Peak Race Car is a CSR2 Duality Evo Prize Car of Season 163.

Obviously, the Bentley Continental is not one of the fastest cars in Tier 5.

The real Bentley Continental Pikes Peak Race Car

The Continental GT3 Pikes Peak is a monster. Bentley starts with its Continental GT3 road race car and ramps up the madness from there. Bentley’s motorsport director Paul Williams tells us the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 makes 750 horsepower at the top of the mountain. So how much at the starting line? Neither Williams nor anyone else at Bentley would give a clear answer to that, for reasons known only to themselves.

“A figure between 750 and 1,000 hp” is the best, if still annoying, answer we got. Why so reticent? Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that the car is powered by Porsche’s new renewable eFuel. So let’s assume that the Bentley Continental GT3 Pikes Peak makes 1,000 horsepower at 9,395 feet. Since the O2 density at 14,000 feet is 60 percent, the turbos are spinning fast enough to maintain 32 psi of pressure-which means the power output is nearly double the 1,000 hp at sea level. And did we mention that the car weighs just 2,970 pounds thanks to its carbon-fiber-intensive construction?

The engine is based on the Continental GT’s standard V8, but the turbos are located outside the manifold, necessitating new exhaust manifolds. In addition to the direct injectors, a second set of injectors was added, primarily to aid detonation cooling. Stronger pistons and connecting rods fire under an attractive carbon fiber intake manifold.

A second rear-mounted radiator sits in the GT3’s trunk, and hot air escapes through large holes in the “trunk lid.” The exhaust, made of Inconel, is a completely custom design. The Bentley Continental GT3 Pikes Peak’s aerodynamics are nearly mental, producing 30 percent more downforce than the standard race car, with most of the gain at the front. The suspension features negative camber for slow corners (Pikes Peak is littered with them, especially at the top), and water-cooled brakes round out the car.

The CSR2 Bentley Pikes Peak Race Car

The 5 purple star Bentley can fit 135 Fusion parts. So far nothing special. The Continental should run 6.972s. To sum up, the Pikes Peak Race Car is not one of the fastest Cars in Tier 5.
