MTM has unveiled a Birkin Edition upgrade for the Bentley Continental GT, GTC, GT Speed, GTC Speed, Flying Spur and Supersports. With MTM’s Birkin Edition kit, the Continental GT, GTC and Flying Spur series can be upgraded with an exclusive and sporty look, fully in line with the legendary Bentley Boys, who exerted such an influence on the racing scene around 75 years ago.

The modified performance data with which MTM has revived the Bentley cannot be documented in purely technical terms, but performance is also proved on the track in the true sense of the word “experience”. The MTM Bentley took three seconds off the standard counterpart on the short Hockenheim circuit, and also three seconds in the 0 to 200 km/h sprint, which the MTM Bolide achieved in 15.9 seconds. No wonder: With his great love for detail and technical efficiency, the developer Roland Mayer pushed the crucial 90 more Hp out of the 12-cylinder standard engine at Wettstetten near Ingolstadt. 650 Hp is the result, and the in-house performance tests recorded 795 Nm, supported by a perfectly coordinated exhaust system with muffler and throttle control which, in addition to the increased performance, delivers a beguiling sound.

As far as the optics and external appearance are concerned, MTM has made no obvious changes to the bodywork. The four-pipe exhaust system with MTM’s F-Cantronic gives the tail its visual effect: approximately 30 mm lower than in the standard series. The small intelligent electronic control unit lowers the 2.4-tonner by 35 mm at the rear axle and by around 25 mm at the front axle. Combined with 21-inch alloy rims, the timeless Bimoto design lends an exclusive, sportier look to the Bentley, which not only offers more dynamics to buyers of new vehicles, but will also appeal to those who already drive a Bentley.

MTM charges €20,000 for their new kit including VAT and a TÜV certificate.

    While the Beautiful British work of art I will never even be allowed to be within 100 feet of one as I am just a poor American Blue collar worker (Trucker)
    I can however admire from a distance the one TRUE drivers car for people who also have good taste, and a refined frame of mind. In fact, due to over working for 20+ years of 100+ hour weeks, my health is such that I will never be able to ever acquire a new car again! But it could be worse, I do own a 2005 Chrysler Sebring GTC, and a 2007 Honda VT600CD Motorcycle. but they (and I) are American products, and their is no way that any American auto maker could stand a quality control and fit/finish contest, or for that matter, a similar contest at 150,000 miles with Both cars receiving equal maintenance and Mobile One Oil. at the 150K mark, the Bentley would appear to still be a new car, with another 150K to go yet while the American auto would really LOOK like it was ready to be recycled! Congrats on a FINE work of ART!
