The New Bentley Continental GT With Forged Wheels and More Power


The introduction of the first-generation Continental model proved to be incredibly successful for Bentley and put them back on top of the ultra-luxury automotive market. The British automaker was looking to build on and continue the success of the first-generation model at the end of 2011 when the introduced the all-new second generation that was packed with all sorts of innovative and new technology with that timeless handcrafted luxury that buyers have come to expect and love from Bentley. Anderson Germany, the luxury and super car specialists have decided to improve upon the newest-generation Bentley Continental GT model with a new upgrade program. The new program includes new carbon fiber body work, a modified engine, new forged wheels, and a refined interior for an exclusive super coupe with performance to match.

The exterior styling of the Bentley Continental GT is dramatic and powerful after the redesign from Anderson Germany. The engineers set out to create a lightweight carbon fiber body kit that would optimize aerodynamics by increasing downforce and reducing drag without taking away from the original design. The new kit features a front lip spoiler and spoiler lip combination with integrated air inlets and ventilated engine bonnet. Airflow is sent around each of the rear forged wheels thanks to a new pair of side skirts and a rear spoiler wing, diffuser, and trunk lid complete the new appearance package.

To finish off the exterior style of the new Bentley Continental GT by Anderson Germany, the team decided to install new forged wheels for a wider footprint and new brakes. The factory rim and tire setup was removed in place of larger and lighter rims that measure 9.0 x 21 and 12.0 x 21 at the front and rear axles with corresponding sport tires. The new wheels were also given a slick matte black paint with contrasting chrome accents. The final touch is a set of new high-performance brakes for the front axle.

More power is created thanks to a modified version of the 6.0-liter W-12 engine in the Continental GT. Engineers installed a new stainless steel sport exhaust system with adjustable valves along with a new ECU tune to drastically increase power. The result of the two modifications is a whopping 680 horsepower being sent to all four of the forged wheels.

Inside, the Continental GT Coupe was outfitted with soft black leather seating with alcantara inserts. Sporty carbon fiber trim pieces are worn throughout the interior and a powerful audio system provides a phenomenal driving experience. Finishing off the interior transformation are new front and rear LED lights beneath the seats for that custom touch.
