Having presented preview data of this Bentley in April, Vilner have now managed to pull it through. The Bulgarian tuner has officially released a fully customized Bentley Continental GT that we’ll now describe.

Starting off with the exterior, this Bentley received a carbon fiber body kit which increases the car’s length by a few centimeters. Every one of the components was carefully modified and replace, except the roof, which was mainly kept intact. Vilner has garnished it with carbon fiber rear and front spoilers, a new set of exhaust pipes, matte gray graphite paintjob and rear diffuser. The inner sides of the headlights contain additional carbon fiber, while the taillights have also been somewhat redesigned.

Specialized on interior car design, the Bulgarian firm has done marvels in this case. The specialists have applied an overall black finish with dark red hues on the armrest and Bordeaux accents. Those dark red tones were also applied to the gearshift leaver and door pockets. As for the steering wheel, it was custom designed to provide the best grip possible. Furthermore, the ceiling and the seats were done in black Alcantara.

As the world evolves, the need for speed rises – and this Bentley is damn satisfactory. Powered by a 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12, the car has had its output boosted from 559 HP (411 kW) to 660 HP (485 kW). The torque figure has also seen a rise, from a stock 650 Nm (480 lb-ft) to a wonderful 780 Nm (575 lb-ft). It used to reach a top speed of 198 mph (318 km/h) before the upgrade, and now it can do 202 mph (325 km/h).
