DMC Gets Aggressive with the Bentley Continental GT DUROMarch 25, 2013 • By Ryan Konko
Making good automobiles better.
DMC Exotic Car Tuning has made quite a name for itself with Italian super cars and it is now expanding into the world of high-end British automobiles after its carbon fiber-clad McLaren MP4-12C and the new Bentley Continental GT DURO. The new Bentley Continental GT program will likely become a polarizing car amongst enthusiasts, but DMC understands that some owners want to make a statement and the new DURO is quite an aggressive one.
The newly designed carbon fiber body kit is the part that will likely garner the most attention both good and bad from the crowd, but by doing so it achieves its goal of creating a buzz. The front bumper on the DMC Bentley Continental GT DURO extends the luxury coupe by two inches and features a dynamic spoiler and lip design with enlarged air intakes and integrated LED daytime running lights. DMC also chose to deviate from the traditional side skirt design and created a pair that utilized two carbon fiber wings to redirect air and create a more dynamic look. The rear is where the DURO really flexes its muscles thanks to a new carbon fiber bumper with diffuser insert and trunk spoiler. Finishing off the polarizing new look is a set of diamond-forged wheels in a 10.0 x 22 fitment at the front and rear wearing a shimmering polished finish with 295/25/22 tires.
Although the looks of the DMC Bentley Continental GT DURO will have enthusiasts split on its looks, one thing that will put a smile on everybody’s face is the incredible amount of power it produces. The 6.0-liter, twin-turbocharged W-12 engine was outfitted with a new lightweight titanium exhaust that helps to reduce backpressure and a new sport air filter system. An ECU tune then makes sure all of the upgrades work together in harmony to produce a whopping 672 horsepower and 575 lb-ft. of torque, sending the British coupe to 62 mph in 4.5 seconds and reaching a top speed of 202 mph.
The interior of every DMC Bentley Continental GT DURO is custom-tailored to each individual with a wide range of nappa leather, alcantara, carbon fiber, trim pieces, and accessories that are handcrafted by the German company for the utmost in quality.
The new DMC Bentley Continental GT DURO will likely ruffle the feathers of a few enthusiasts, but it will surely be one show-stopping super coupe. Pricing and other information on the conversion can be found on the DMC Exotic Car Tuning website.
