Custom Continental GT described as a “Porsche killer.”
The new Bentley Continental GT is one of the finest luxury grand tourers on the planet, but German tuner Wheelsandmore thinks there's room for improvement. After recently increasing the new Aston Martin Vantage's output to 700 horsepower, Wheelsandmore has transformed the Bentley Continental GT into what it calls "a real Porsche killer." When you find out how much the performance has improved, the tuner isn't exaggerating.
As standard, the new Continental GT is powered by a 6.0-liter, twin-turbo W12 engine that produces a respectable 626 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque, which is sent to all four wheels. That's enough to send the luxury grand tourer from 0-62 mph in 3.6 seconds before topping out at an impressive 207 mph. If that's not enough power for you, Wheelsandmore offers two tuning packages for the new Continental GT.
Thanks to an ECU remap, the stage 1 tuning kit increases the output to 740 hp and 774 lb-ft of torque, while the stage 2 kit raises the output to 784 horsepower and 811 lb-ft of torque. As a result of these modifications, the tuned Continental GT will rocket from 0-62 mph in just 3.28 seconds, making it quicker off the line than a Porsche 911 GT2 RS.
In addition to the power upgrade, Wheelsandmore has also fitted a custom exhaust system that emits a "rich, dull rumble" befitting of a luxury coupe and a plug-and-play lowering module that can be controlled from inside the car or with a smartphone app available on iOS and Android devices. Rounding off the visual changes are custom 22-inch wheels featuring a Y-spoke design and available in either silver or black, wrapped in high-performance Pirelli tires.
Inside, Wheelsandmore has left the interior stock but we're not complaining since the new Continental GT already has one of the most exquisite interiors in the segment with a sumptuous mix of handcrafted leather and wood materials.
