German tuner MTM’s latest creation has beaten Bentley themselves for the title of “Fastest Bentley in the World.” They’ve taken a regular Continental GT, and added power and suspension upgrades, along with a few other minor changes.
MTM has managed to squeeze 650 horsepower out of the Bentley’s twin-turbocharged W12 engine, which is 90hp more than from the factory. Torque is increased from 479 lb-ft to 586, and is available at only 1700 rpm. These power upgrades allow the tuned Continental GT to hit a top speed of over 205 mph, and it took three seconds off the standard GT on the short Hockenheim circuit, as well as three seconds off the 0 to 200 km/h sprint, which the MTM achieved in 15.9 seconds.
Along with the engine upgrades, the MTM Continental GT also receives a new stainless steel exhaust system, custom 21-inch alloy wheels, bigger brakes, and a tuned and height-adjustable suspension.
MTM didn’t change any of the body except adding a chromed grille, but the lowered suspension, new wheels, and four-pipe exhaust give the MTM Continental GT an overall sportier and more aggressive look.
The Birkin Edition kit will cost a little over $28,000 USD, and can be applied to the standard Continental GT, GTC, Flying Spur, GT Speed, GTC Speed and Continental Supersports.
