If you are fortunate enough to afford a Bentley, you must be someone who are either extremely successful in life, or might have come into some money your family had left you. Either ways, opting to buy a Bentley, regardless of model shows class, sophistication, and a touch of elegance on your part. Now that would be a simple generalization to make, wouldn’t it?
You’d be wrong however.
With the newer models being launched by Bentley and lower pricing points offered to consumers in models such as the Continental GT V8, younger owners are looking to Bentley to purchase their automobile of choice. What this is turn means is that the inherent need to ‘modify’ or ‘tune’ your cars are being see more often on Bentley cars in recent time.
A very good example of that would be this highly modified Bentley Continental GT V8 which was given the full ‘GT3’ treatment, albeit missing the huge wing at the rear. Front the front bumper, large over-sized wheels, rear diffuser, to even the exhaust system; almost every other body part improved on to make it perform better and more ‘race-like’ than the average GT V8. The loud racing livery only goes further to reiterate that point.
Apart from the exterior, the engine was given some work too via tuning house MTM who chipped up the ECU to raise the power to 638 British horses and reduce the 0-62mph time down to 4.2 seconds.
If this piece of news excites you that boy do we have good news for you. This very example is available for sale through Louwman Exclusive and can be yours today for a low price of 266,595 euros! The car has only 1,500km on the odometer so it should be as good as new.
