Top 5 Tuned Bentleys

Offbeat

Even Bentley owners turn to tuning houses to give their rides an added touch of exclusivity.

There aren't many machines more capable than a Bentley. Yet that doesn't stop owners from tracking down the likes of Wheelsandmore for a new set of shoes or Office-K for a new coat of pink paint. From the 4.0-liter turbocharged V8-powered Continental GT to the 6.8-liter turbocharged V8-powered Mulsanne, aftermarket upgrades are usually restricted to aesthetics, as these luxury cruisers come equipped with more than enough twisting power to satisfy their well-healed drivers. Here's a look at five of the best.

German tuner Wheelsandmore offers a collection of goodies for the Bentley Continental GT, GTC and GT Speed, starting with an assortment of 21- and 22-inch handcrafted forged alloys in a range of colors and finishes, including 3-piece 6Sporz2 wheels, Kahn Dark Myst wheels, and Multipiece C-Sport wheels. The Continental can be fitted with an electronic lowering module and valve-controlled stainless-steel exhaust with remote-controllable flaps that offer more volume and an additional 15 hp and 13 lb-ft of torque. For added performance, chip tuning is also available, which bumps the V8 to 565 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque, the W12 to 635 hp and 560 lb-ft, and the GT Speed to 680 hp and 627 lb-ft.

Vorsteiner's take on the new Bentley Continental GT Series included an exclusive aero kit built with Vorsteiner's pre-preg autoclave technology. Dubbed the BR-10, the five-piece lightweight carbon fiber kit features a new front splitter, two-piece side skirts, rear diffuser and trunk-lid spoiler. Along with a set of big, blacked-out wheels, the BR-10 is one bold Bentley. Vorsteiner also prepared a white BR-10 model on a set of their 22-inch VS-130 forged aluminum wheels.

Prior Design's new aerodynamics kit for the Continental GTC included a new modified front bumper, rear diffuser and a stainless steel sport exhaust system. The cabin was also upgraded with carbon fiber trim since, instead of the standard wood. Dubbed "High Society" the upgrade kit gives the GTC a much more aggressive appearance. Despite the new additions Prior Design has made, the GTC still maintains its trademark grille, only with a more sophisticated look.

Japanese tuner Office-K followed up its pink Rolls-Royce Phantom with this top-of-the-line Mulsanne. Finished in a shade of what we like to call "Metallic Pepto," the custom Mulsannehas been outfitted with LED daytime running lights and a set of Forgiato DITO 24-inch three-piece wheels with chrome face and pink detailing.

Named the Black Bison Edition Bentley Continental GT, Wald International's tuning package features a body kit with hard edges and styling elements that give the car a sleek new look. The body kit includes a front bumper spoiler, side skirts, rear bumper spoiler, trunk spoiler, and roof spoiler. That's a lot of spoilers. Other components include a suspension lowering kit, a D.T.M sports muffler exhaust system and either Wald's 21-inch Portofino or Mahora wheels.
