Bentley Continental GT DURO by DMC

Total overkill! DMC’s work can easily be recognized when staring at this Bentley Continental GT; there are some hardware upgrades under that cool exterior and sinister looks. After the Bentley Continental GT received that more powerful S logo, that meant 528 HP (389 kW) and 680 Nm (502 lb-ft) I didn’t imagine somebody would dare touch it. DMC fiddled around under the bonnet and managed to get it even more outrageous, to 672 HP (494 kW) and 780 Nm (575 lb-ft) squeezed out of the same V8 4.0-liter twin-turbo engine.

How did DMC do that? Well, the Bentley was fitted with a titanium exhaust, a remapped ECU and sports air filters. All of that translates into a top speed of 202 mph (325 km/h). Looking like it does, if it were to pass you by at that speed you’d believe it was Darth Vader out on a cruise. DMC also applied a diabolical black treatment to this Bentley and installed a carbon fiber front bumper which has increased overall length by two inches. The new LED daytime running lights help with the bad-ass look; so are the side skirts and a carbon fiber rear bumper with a diffuser made from the same lightweight material.

Hey, and if all those details don’t impress you, I’m hoping the carbon fiber rear spoiler and 22-inch diamond-forged matte black rims shod in 295/25 R22 rubbers will. I’m sold, that’s for sure, although I’m not sure I’ve got what it takes to drive this beast: money, that is!
